Film-maker Kabir Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan is caught in a tussle surrounding the song, ‘Bhar do jholi’. Qawwal Amjad Sabri and a Pakistani recording company have sent a legal notice to Salman, Kabir and the other stakeholders of the film, claiming that they did not acquire from them the rights to use the qawwali in the film. However, singer Adnan Sami, who has sung the song, had said, “So many qawwals have sung it that after a point it becomes a part of world culture. There are over 20 versions of the track.” There was also a stay order on the release of Sunny Deol’s Mohalla Assi after objections were raised against a scene that shows an actor dressed as Lord Shiva uttering abuses. “It’s not really the first time someone has attempted abusive language,” Ravi Kishann, the film’s actor is reported to have said.Director Omung Kumar’s biopic on Sarabjit Singh, who was convicted of terrorism and spying by a Pakistani court, has also been dragged to court by his sister, Dalbir Kaur, for “negative portrayal”.
