The Punjaabban Song, is a remake of the Pakistani song Nach Punjaban. It has been sung by Gippy Grewal, Zahrah S Khan, Tanishk Bagchi, and Romy, with music and lyrics by Tanishk Bagchi and Abrar Ul Haq. The song recently landed in controversy after it featured in the trailer of JugJugg Jeeyo.
Abrar Ul Haq had accused the makers of the film of copying his song without due permission. “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” he tweeted. To this, Music label T-Series dismissed Abrar’s claims and said that they have legally acquired the rights to adapt the song.
Directed by Raj Mehta, Jugjugg Jeeyo stars Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani and Anil Kapoor with Neetu Kapoor. It is scheduled to release in theatres on June 24.
