Dr Zeus threatens ‘Bala’ makers for plagiarising his song ‘Don’t Be Shy’
Dr Zeus accused the makers of 'Bala' for recreating his hit Don’t Be Shy without his consent.
Ayushmann Khurrana’s upcoming film Bala which also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam has created a controversy as the trailer of the film was found to be similar to Sunny Singh starrer Ujda Chaman.
The makers of Bala released their first song from their film titled ‘Don’t Be Shy’. The song features Ayushmann, Bhumi and Yami along with Badshah and Abhishek Banerjee and it is the recreation of Dr Zeus’ hit number Don’t Be Shy. Dr Zeus has accused the makers of reprising his hit song without his approval.
Dr Zeus took to Twitter handle and wrote, “Are u guys taking the piss @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 & fuckin them up???

This is not the first time when somebody accused the makers of Bala of using other’s content without getting their nod. A few days back, National Award winner director Praveen Mochale filed a case in the Bombay High Court for copyright violation.
According to reports, Praveen Mochale accused the Bala’s writer and producer of lifting the story from his screenplay.
Bala’s ‘Don’t Be Shy’ has been sung by Badshah and Shalmali Kholgade. Mellow D and Badshah have recreated the lyrics for the song. Amar Kaushik has also collaborated with Maddock Films yet again for Bala, after, Stree.
