Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan praises Pakistani singer Abrar-ul-Haq in his interview over singing Nach Punjaban. His remarks came in the latest interview in response to the question regarding the controversy over the song.
Dhawan said that the production house has bought the rights to the songs. The song was released in 2002 and was originally sung by Abrar-ul-Haq. It was a massive hit in Pakistan. The song has been recreated with the title ‘The Punjabban Song’ for Karan Johar’s movie Jugjugg Jeeyo. The movie star Varun Dhawan, Neetu Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, and Kiara Advani.

In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Varun Dhawan was asked to give a message to Abrar-ul-Haq. He said, “He’s sung the song so well, it’s amazing, outstanding. We loved it. Our music company bought the rights and now our song is doing so well, so thank you.”
Earlier this month, Abrar shared a video in which he said, “A lot of fans have been asking me ‘Why haven’t you gone to court against Karan Johar and T-Series for stealing your song Nach Punjaban?’ The answer is, yes, I’m going to the court don’t worry. Merely saying that the credit has been given because the song is well written and would make their movie a hit. I never gave you the song, I never gave anybody the rights to my song. It belongs to me so I’ll get it back and I’m coming to the court, see you there!”
The trailer of the song that was shared last month kicked off the controversy. Reacting to the song in the movie, Abrar-ul-Haq said: “I have not sold my song Nach Punjaban to any Indian movie and reserve the right 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.”
