Musicians hail Abhay`s open tussle with music label
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.
