Dr. Zeus Accuses The Makers Of Bala’s Song ‘Don’t Be Shy’ Of Plagiarism

The Ayushmann Khurrana film, Bala, has been the talk of the town after they released the trailer of the film recently. There was a bit of a tussle with the makers of Ujda Chaman, which is a very similar concept and stars Sunny Singh in the lead role. While Dinesh Vijan – the producer of Bala – stated that it is an original concept and their own, seems like the issue of plagiarism has still stuck on with this film.

Just recently, the makers just released the latest track from the film, Don’t Be Shy. The quirky song has Ayushmann, Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam matching steps to Badshah‘s rap. While it all looks like a lot of fun, guess it’s not the case for the makers. British-Indian song composer, Dr. Zeus took to Twitter to slam the composers – Sachin-Jigar – for ripping off the tunes from his hit song, ‘Don’t Be Shy‘.

In his tweet, Dr. Zeus seemed quite pissed with the whole situation and threatened to sue the makers, saying “Come up with something original“.

Here is his tweet:

While the makers of the song – Sony Music India, or Sachin-Jigar – haven’t released any statement, rapper Badshah has responded to the allegation. The rapper took to his social media to release a statement about the issue saying he has great respect and admiration for Dr. Zues and his work and that he agreed to do the song only after he made sure they had the rights.

Here is his statement:

Dr. Zeus was quick to respond to this and said that he has no problem with Badshah. He appreciated him for at least coming out and addressing the problem.

Well, we hope they do sort out the situation rightfully and everyone gets the dues they deserve.

Bala is a quirky tale about a man coping with premature balding and how it affects his life and relationships. The film is directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan and is all set to release on November 7th.
