Abdul Samee Siddiqui has sent a legal notice to Salman Khan, director Kabir Khan, T-Series and some other parties linked with Bajrangi Bhaijaan with a claim that rights for the song 'Bhar Do Jholi Meri' lies with him.
Siddiqui claimed that he bought the rights for the qawali song from the heirs of Sabri brothers in the year 2007 but the makers of Bajrangi Bhaijaan used the song in their film without his consent.
Talking to a leading publication, Siddiqui said, "I acquired the rights from the heirs of Sabri brothers eight years ago for a film that I was making on Indo-Pak relations with Rajkumar Santoshi which didn't materialise. But that doesn't mean the qawali can be used by another person just like that. If they don't reply to this letter, we will soon decide our future course of action".
Just two weeks are left for the release of Bajrangi Bhaijaan but no statement has come up from Salman Khan or Kabir Khan with regard to the legal notice yet.
