Mumbai: Singers like Kailash Kher, Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan and composers such as Vishal Dadlani and Ehsaan Noorani have hailed Abhay Deol’s courageous outburst against music label T-Series for holding up the music release of his forthcoming film ‘One By Two’.

The actor-producer, who recently turned up with a black eye at a recent award ceremony held here, openly stated that T-Series has stalled the release of the music of his film ‘One By Two’ as the music company wants him to get composer Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy to sign a clause first.

Several Indian musicians have lent their support to Abhay`s effort in supporting the popular trio, who have composed the ‘One By Two’ album.

Following Abhay`s remonstration at the Screen Awards, celebrities took to Twitter to share their sentiments on the issue:

Sonu Nigam: The movie and music of `One By Two` deserves your mad support now all the more. You have to do it for the sake of justice and order.

Sunidhi Chauhan: Hats off to you Abhay Deol. I`m speechless at your stand. Respect. Always.

Kailash Kher: Appreciate Abhay Deol`s stand, he had choice but he chose to save art and artistes from illegal contracts. Hope all actors and producers join this.

Shreya Ghoshal: Abhay Deol you are truly a brave heart! You are the first producer to speak up against the wrong. The entire music fraternity is with you.

Vishal Dadlani: Today, Abhay Deol has shown he is a man of principles and courage. He`s won the admiration and thanks of the entire film music fraternity.

Ehsaan Noorani: Whatever happens whether the music releases or not ‘One By Two` film needs all your support people!

Alisha Chinai: Abhay Deol thanks a billion for supporting the music fraternity. No more illegal contracts for us. Boycott the music mafia!

Mahalakshmi Iyer: Abhay Deol, respect! As a young producer you have shown guts and gumption to take them on. The music fraternity will be eternally grateful!
