Karan Johar’s ‘Jugjugg Jeeyo’ has shamelessly copied Abrar ul Haq’s 2002 hit ‘Nach Punjaban’!
How absurd it sounds, that the country (India) after putting a ban on Pakistani artists still keeps lifting songs from Pakistan and ruining them.
The latest added to Bollywood’s ripoff list is Nach Punjaban.
As soon as the trailer of the upcoming film was out, Abrar ul Haq the singer of the original song in a tweet shared his statement.
“I have not sold my song Nach Punjaban to any Indian movie and reserve the right 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,” Abar said.

Layers of disappointment to Nach Punjaban in JugJugg Jeeyo trailer:
Why not an original composition?
If you were going to use it, why not keep Abrar Ul Haq’s voice?
If you weren’t going to keep his voice, why not name him in the credits?
Shame because I like the trailer otherwise

How can they copy #NachPunjaban? You need go fight this out. Some things are just NOT allowed to be touched, copied or stolen. Nach Punjaban is my most favourite song of yours. My sisters and I grew up listening to this and 20 years on we still play it at every family wedding. https://t.co/cHTz0ackjw
