Later, he revealed, “I did a song 'Angreji Beat'. Deepika danced to it; a lot of other stars performed on it, but no one took my name. Even the film's trailer was cut on the song but no one gave proper credit.”

Highlighting a similar and recent incident, Gippy Grewal revealed that “JugJugg Jeeyo featured the song 'Nach Punjaban'. They asked me to sing the song. I said, okay. I gave my vocals to the song and send it to them. Later, I didn't get any reply for three months. I thought they might not have liked my vocals. Then, I saw a poster that stated that the trailer is coming tomorrow. So, I called the music director Tanishq and asked them if they have used my vocals. He said no and that it was Dharma's call. I said okay fine, good luck.”

“The next day the trailer was released. I didn't see it. However, my brother called me and said that the song was amazing, why didn't you tell me about it? I asked him where you listened to the song. He said the song was in the trailer with your vocals. When I checked the trailer, the whole trailer was cut on my vocal. I was shocked because the music director had said no to me. Then I messaged him that it's good you didn't use my vocals and please inform them to not use my vocals. I don't want to do the song. Then they called me and gave excuses. I mean, the whole film was promoted on that particular song but nobody said that who sung it,” he said.

He further said that “Next day, I found that Avrar Ji tweeted about the song and I was like they didn't even have the rights of the song and I sang it. I was very amazed because I have grown up seeing Avrar ji and learning from him. I had not even signed any agreement. Then someone from Dharma called me and he was very nice. He told me that there was a cheque for me. I said I didn't do the song for money. If I would have done it for money then I would have asked for it prior to sending my vocals. I asked them to not do it like this next time.”
