Taking to Twitter on Haq said: “My lawyers in the United Kingdom have issued a legal notice to Moviebox with respect to the misappropriation of my song Nach Punjaban.” He said that he will share the updates soon with people. The singer ended his tweet with the hashtag “Stop Stealing Our Songs”.

Let us tell you, earlier also the singer had tweeted, “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.”

In response to the tweet, Moviebox had tweeted that the song had been officially licensed to be included in the film and that Johar and his company had the legal rights to use it in the upcoming movie. They also called the 53-year-old singer’s tweet “defamatory” and “completely unacceptable”.

However, the singer still stated that his song had not been ‘licensed’ to anyone and urged those making such a claim to produce an agreement.

Reacting to the same, record label T-Series had also issued a statement on Twitter and said that they had “legally acquired the rights to adapt the song ‘Nach Punjaban’ that was ... available on Lollywood Classics' YouTube channel, owned by Movie Box.”
