According to The Indian Express, Pakistani singer, Abrar Ul Haq has accused ‘Jugjugg Jeeyo’ and Dharma Productions of stealing his song ‘Nach Punjaban’.

Threatening legal action, Haq slammed Dharma Productions for their alleged act and claimed that this is his 6th song being stolen, though he didn’t specifically mention it was Dharma Productions who did so.

“I have not sold my song ‘Nach Punjaban’ to any Indian movie and reserve the rights to go to court to claim damages. Producers like @karanjohar should not use copy songs. This is my 6th song being copied which will not be allowed at all,” he tweeted.

That’s not all. According to DNA, a creative executive producer, screenwriter and chartered accountant named Vishal A. Singh took to Twitter to allege that Dharma Productions copied his story without giving him any credit. He claimed that he shared the story with Dharma back in 2020.

He added screenshots of the mail that he allegedly sent to Dharma and said that he would lodge an official complaint against the company.

His story was named ‘Bunny Rani’ and revolved around a “middle-class couple” married for 25 years who decide to get divorced to pursue their own separate passions after their kids become well settled.
