In this regard, they reserve the right to sue.It should be noted that well-known Indian filmmaker and director Karan Johar has included Abrar-ul-Haq’s famous song Nach Punjaban Nach in his film Jag Jag Geo without any permission or rights.Prominent singer Abrar-ul-Haq has taken a stand in his statement that Karan Johar should not be included in his films by stealing songs.
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.
