Karan Johar ‘steals’ Abrar ul Haq’s Nach Punjaban [Video]

Karan Johar has been accused of stealing Nach Punjaban

Bollywood has once again stolen a Pakistani hit song. This time, its Karan Johar who has blatantly copied a Pakistani song, Nach Punjaban.

Yesterday, the trailer for the Indian filmmaker’s upcoming movie Jugjugg Jeeyo was released. What caught the attention of the social media users was the blatant copy of Abrar ul Haq’s famous song.

Karan Johar was instantly called out by fans after tweets about the songs went viral. A social media user took to her Twitter account to share the clip from the movie’s trailer.

Ibrar ul Haq’s response:

The Pakistani singer and politician took to his Twitter account to share that he has not sold his song to any Bollywood movie. He also threatened legal action to claim damages.

Abrar also urged Karan Johar not to copy songs. He added that it is his sixth song which has been copied and it will not be allowed at all.

MovieBox response:

Responding to Abrar ul Haq’s claim, MovieBox – one of the biggest music labels of UK – said, “Nach Panjaban has been officially licensed for it to be included in the Film “JugJugg Jeeyo” by @TSeries. @karanjohar & @DharmaMovies have the legal rights to use this song in their film and the tweet by @AbrarUlHaqPK earlier today is defamatory and completely unacceptable.”

Abrar ul Haq once again denies giving permission:

The singer once again denied that his song has been licensed to anyone. “If someone is claiming it , then produce the agreement,” he wrote.

Social media reaction:

Netizens have expressed their disappointment over their favourite bhangra song getting stolen. Here’s how Twitter reacted:
