Dr Zeus has reportedly accused Maddock Films of plagiarism
Singer and composer Dr Zeus has recently accused Bala’s makers, Maddock Films, of plagiarism for recreating his song Don’t Be Shy without due credits. He also accused the music label, Sony Music and composers Sachin-Jigar of riding off his old hits.
Dr Zeus took to his Twitter to lash out at the makers and wrote: “Are u guys taking the p*** @sonymusicindia @MaddockFilms @Its_Badshah @SonyMusicUK @SachinJigarLive wen did u compose don’t b shy & kangna.. more to the point how dare u guys b riding off ma old hits & f***** them up??? Ya need to get original. My lawyers will b in touch.”
The song was released on Friday and has been sung by Badshah and Shalmali Kholgade. Dr Zeus wasn’t given credits for the song originally, but after the controversy was stirred, his name was added in the credits list.
While Badshah spoke about the controversy and supported Dr Zeus, the makers are yet to comment on it. Badshah tweeted: “I am aware of the situation. I want to start by saying that I love And respect @drzeusworld paaji immensely and he knows it. He has the right to get angry with me because he’s my senior and I’ve learnt a lot from him.”

He has also requested fans to not lash out against the actors or singers, saying it’s not their fault but the label’s.
