Singer Honey Singh got a lot of flak recently when the song Balatkari was credited to him. People on social networking sites and artistes from the music fraternity had vented their anger on the issue. However, the singer denied that the song was his. There were some who chose to defend the singer, one of them being director Anurag Kashyap. The director’s tweet on a microblogging site read: ‘@ankash1009: Balatkari song is by Zeest.’

Zeest, a Pakistani rock band spearheaded by Saqib Abdullah aka Skip, is known for its songs like Sutta and 100 Rupai. Upset with the comment made by Anurag, the band’s communication manager, Sohail Abdullah, said, “I don’t know why he said it was our song. I would like to clarify that Zeest has never composed such a song and we have nothing to do with it. Moreover, we don’t even know who had composed it. Zeest has so far released only two songs, Sutta (Sutta Na Mila) and 100 Rupai.”

He also went on to clarify that in 2008, Saqib posted on his blog that ‘Songs like GMD, XL Ki Kudiyan or Balatkari don’t belong to us. Kindly give credit to the actual artistes.’ Anurag remained unavailable for comment.
