The trailer for Karan Johar’s family comedy-drama Jug Jugg Jeeyo, which stars Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor, and Neetu Kapoor in main roles and is produced by Dharma Productions, was released to a positive response on Sunday, May 22. The celebrity cast dancing to the popular Punjabi song Nach Punjaban was one of the trailer’s highlights.

Now, the song’s originator, Pakistani artist Abrar Ul Haq, has threatened to sue Karan Johar and his team, claiming that his song was used without giving him full credit. On Sunday, May 22, the singer-songwriter announced on his Twitter account that he will sue for damages.

“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. @DharmaMovies @karanjohar”, read his first tweet.

His next tweet read, “Song “Nach Punjaban” has not been licensed to anyone. If someone is claiming it, then produce the agreement. I will be taking legal action. #NachPunjaban”.

Billo De Ghar, the musician’s first album as a singer, was published in 1995 and went on to sell over 40 million copies worldwide, garnering him the title of “King of Pakistani Pop.” Abrar-Ul-Haq is now an active politician in Pakistan and a big benefactor in the neighbouring country.

No one from Dharma Productions has responded to the Pakistani singer-claim songwriter’s as of yet. Jug Jugg Jeeyo, directed by Raj Mehta, will be released on June 24 in theatres all over the world.
