Earlier the brand had done a collaborative shoot with Anil’s son Harshvardhan Kapoor. The pictures of the shoot were shared on their Instagram page of Rasta. The brand was created in 2018. The brand’s outfits have been worn by renowned celebrities including Bollywood’s bigwigs Karan Johar, Oscar-winning actor Riz Ahmed and rapper French Montana.
Zain Ahmed was recently featured in the Forbes ‘30 Under 30’. According to Forbes, his brand Rastah “champions sustainable and artisanal designs, with items being designed, sourced and produced by local artisans in limited quantities in Pakistan.”
It seems that Pakistan has greatly influenced the movie JuggJugg Jeeyo. The film has already been under controversy for stealing a Pakistani song ‘Nach Panjaban’ originally sung by Abrar-ul-Haq.
Haq claims that the Bollywood director has stolen his song and used the song in the movie without his permission. Meanwhile, Karan Johar claims they have bought the rights for the song.
Pakistani singer Abrar-ul-Haq has issued a legal notice to UK record label Moviebox Birmingham Limited which claims to have rights to the song. The legal notice comes days after Abrar-ul-Haq had said that he will be taking legal action against Bollywood director Karan Johar for stealing his song Nach Panjaban for his movie Jugjug Jeeyo.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday Haq said: “My lawyers in the United Kingdom have issued a legal notice to Moviebox concerning 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”.
