In a recent interview to the BBC Asian Network, composer Anu Malik is said to have cleared the air stating, "I have no problems with any composer or with T-Series. My songs in Humko Deewana Kar Gaye have become a hit and are at the top of the charts. I don't know who has started these rumors of my contract being terminated with T-Series. There was no contract for it to be terminated. I have been approached by T-Series to do a very big film in fact. I am even looking forward to doing an album for T-Series in the future in which I will sing. Going forward, I've told all my directors that if someone wishes to come to me, they must do so on my terms and conditions, else they're free to go to any other composer in the market. There are so many these days and all of them are doing good work. I don't want anybody to piggyback on my shoulders so I've got into contracts that all songs for my forthcoming films will be composed by me."
It may be recalled that there were recent rumors about Anu being miffed when T-Series released Himesh Reshammiya's promotional version of the title song of Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, which, incidentally, has been getting a huge response on the airwaves of late.
