Be it link-up rumors, accusations of copied storyline or newly released song troubles, the release is facing obstacles every coming day. Raabta which was recently in news for allegations using the story line of S S Rajamouli's Maghadheera, is again in controversies.
The makers recently released a new song "Mai Tera Boyfriend" sung by Arijit Singh and Neha Kakkar which was liked by many. But now singer J-Star who has sung the original number has accused T-Series of stealing his famous track.

While in an interview with Scoopwhoop, the singer said,
“I was approached by T-series about 8 to 9 months ago. They wanted to take the rights to use my song in a film. They didn’t mention which film they wanted to take it in. But I refused to make a deal with them due to some terms and conditions in the contract. And now, it is very disappointing to learn that my song has been used without my permission. I was not aware that they have used my song in ‘Raabta’. I got to know only through my friends and fans on social media. My team is now contemplating taking legal actions against them.”
He accused them of recreating the track without permission and in return, T-Series released a statement narrating the true story on Twitter:
