In the video, he can be heard saying, “A trailer for a Bollywood movie called Sadak 2 has just been released, and there is a song in it called Ishq Kamaal. After listening to it, I realised that it sounds like a composition I had produced for a friend around 11 years ago. The friend’s name is Zaid Khan. I think they’ve copied it because not only the melody, but the music is also very similar.”
