Abhay Deol, T-Series in a tussle over a clause
Posted on Jan 15 2014 | IANS
Mumbai, Jan 15 :) Actor-producer Abhay Deol is miffed with the music company T-Series, which has stalled the release of the music of his film One By Two, as it wants him to get composer Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy to sign a clause first.
At the 20th Annual Life OK Screen Awards held Tuesday night, Abhay arrived with a swollen eye and when asked if he was alright, he said, "No, I am not alright. My film is releasing Jan 31. My music has not yet released because the music company wants me to get the composers Shankar-Ehsaan and Loy to sign a clause which is illegal."
He openly named the company and said he has suffered the loss and the music is not available anywhere.
"It's T-series... The solution is: don't make me sign a clause which is illegal. It's just two weeks to the film and my music is not available. The loss has happened, the film releases Jan 31 and my music is not available anywhere. I will not hide anything. I can only go to the press now," the 37-year-old said here.
Abhay stars alongside girlfriend Preeti Desai in the film.
"Let's see what will happen, they are not marketing my film, the music is not on the radio also. What else can I do?" he added.
Abhay will soon hold a press conference about the issue.
"It is an issue of copyright. I will talk about it after first talking to Shankar, Ram Sampat, Vishal-Shekhar, they are all with me. The music industry is supporting me, let's see if the actors and producers will," he said.
"One By Two" has been directed by Devika Bhagat and also stars Rati Agnihotri, Lillete Dubey and Darshan Jariwala.
