Ayushmann Khurrana's next film Bala has come with its own set of controversies. Firstly, a movie on extremely plot lines, titled Ujda Chaman, is due for a release around the same time. When makers of Bala preponed the release to come before, Ujda Chaman, the makers of the latter dragged the former to the court. Now, another legal case might ensue for the makers. The first song from Bala titled, "Don't Be Shy" was released on the internet on November 18. Very evidently the song is a remake of Dr Zeus' '90s hit by the same name. But, unfortunately, Dr Zeus was no where credited. The popular singer took to his Twitter handle and slammed Badshah, Maddock Films, Sachin-Jigar and Sony Music India.

Badshah was quick to respond to Dr Zeus' grievance. The OG was even given the credit, after the controversy gained traction on the internet, but he is no mood to let this one go. After all it is about not being credited for hard work.

Here is What Dr Zeus Tweeted:

Here is How Badshah Responded:

Dr Zeus was ready to forgive Badshah but Sony Music is still not off the hook. Zeus tweeted:

Dr Zeus also streamlined the debate a little bit and said that it should not get ugly or hateful as it only about creating awareness:

Before the controversy, speaking about remixing the number, composer duo Sachin-Jigar told Mirror, "The song is relevant to the narrative of the film and we redo it in our way. In fact, the bigger challenge was to keep the dignity and the legacy of the original song intact."

This is not the first time "Don't Be Shy" has been remade. Back in 2014, it a recreated version of it was used as a promotional track for Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover's Alone. The song became a huge hit back then as well. Dr Zeus was credited as original composer for it.
