Tony Kakkar (born 9 April 1984) is an Indian singer, composer and lyricist.[3][4] Kakkar made his debut in Bollywood in 2012, as a music director with the film Mr. Bhatti on Chutti, for which he composed the song "Good Boys Bad Boys".[5][better source needed] He is the brother of singers Sonu Kakkar and Neha Kakkar. In 2015, he founded Desi Music Factory, a record label along with Anshul Garg.[6][7][better source needed][8]

Life and career[edit]

Kakkar has two sisters Sonu Kakkar and Neha Kakkar who both are successful singers in the industry.[9] Hailing from Rishikesh, their family moved to Delhi in 1990s, where the siblings used to sing at jagratas. In 2004, Kakkar and his sister Neha shifted to Mumbai. There he learned composing, later working as a lyricist for composer Sandeep Chowta. Breakthrough came when people started spreading rumours that he composed the song "Sawan Aaya Hai" for the film Creature 3D.[3] In 2015, he founded Desi Music Factory, a record label along with Anshul Garg which has more than 25 million subscribers as of February 2021.[6][7][better source needed][8]

Plagiarism allegations[edit]

Kakkar copy visuals from Kpop songs on several occasions. "Shona Shona", released in 2020, has visual similarities with B1A4's "Like A Movie" and IZ*ONE's "Beware".[10] "Booty Shake", released in 2021, is also heavily based on a Kpop song. The music video is being alleged to be similar to K-pop girl group Blackpink's music video called "Ice Cream".[11][12]
