‘Bala’ makers release official statement over Dr Zeus’ ‘Don’t Be Shy’ song controversy


A few days back, Dr Zeus had accused Bala makers of remaking his hit song ‘Don’t Be Shy’ without asking his permission for it. Some time later one of the singers Badshah clarified stating that the makers had indeed taken all official rights and Sachin-JIgar had re-composed the song for Bala.

Fetauring Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam, the Bala song Don’t Be Shy Again is crooned by Sachin-Jigar, Badshah, Shalmali Kholgade and Gurdeep Mehendi. Confirming about the rights, Karman Entertainment released a statement.

Here’s what it read:

“Karman Entertainment owns the worldwide rights to the song ‘Don’t Be Shy’ by Rouge, the early 2000s classic dance hit, produced by Dr Zeus. Karman Entertainment gave an official license to Maddock Films for the re-creation rights of ‘Don’t Be Shy’, which is featuring in Bala starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam and directed by Amar Kaushik. The song video went live on 18. of October and has received an overwhelming response globally. The video and the single itself was teased on social media a day prior and the fun banter between the composers, Badshah and the lead actor, Ayushmann had even/one in splits. Featuring music re-created by Sachin-Jigar and lyrics by Badshah and Mellow D, the video of this mane-ficent track has to be seen to be believed. 

It has one wig-snatching moment (literally1) and what follows will be an encouraging moment for tress-stressed people everywhere.
