The accusation came for recreating Dr Zeus' song Don’t Be Shy without due credits

Published: 19th October 2019

Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer Bala can’t seem to get rid of the controversies. After facing plagiarism allegations over the story, the makers, Maddock Films, have now been accused by singer-composer Dr Zeus of plagiarism for recreating his song Don’t Be Shy without due credit. He also accused the music label, Sony Music, and composers Sachin-Jigar of "riding off [his] old hits."

The musician took to Twitter to lash out at the makers.

The song, sung by Badshah and Shalmali Kholgade, was released on Friday. Dr Zeus was not originally given credits for the song, but after his tweets and accusations, his name was added in the credits list.

While Badshah spoke about the controversy and supported Dr Zeus, the makers are yet to comment on it. Badshah tweeted.
