Alleged copyright violation
In his debut film as an actor, Aap Kaa Surroor - The Real Luv Story, Himesh Reshammiya added a song Tanhaiyaan from Boney Kapoor's proposed film Milenge Milenge. Initially, Reshammiya had composed the song for Kapoor's film but later decided to use it for his own movie. Tips, which held the audio rights of Milenge Milenge, accused Reshammiya of copyright violation, as audio rights for Aap Kaa Surroor – The Real Luv Story were acquired by T-Series. However, Reshammiya defended himself saying that he had made Kapoor listen to the song, but it was not included in Milenge Milenge. He also claimed to have tried to get in touch with Kapoor for seven months, and since there was no progress on the film, he decided to use the song for his own movie. But at the time of release of Milenge Milenge, Himesh Reshammiya has once again composed a new song called Kuch to baaki hai for the promotions of the movie, which went on to become a smash hit.
