Abhay Deol has proven that he is unlike any other Deol the public has ever seen on the big screen, whether it’s through his performances, his choice of roles, his films, or how he conducts himself in the media, from his debut with Socha Na Tha.

The actor believes in stating his thoughts and is frequently involved in debates. One such instance happened in 2012, just days before the release of his first film, One By Two.

Abhay walked the red carpet with a black eye at the 2012 Screen Awards, capturing everyone’s attention.

When asked by the media if he’s okay and what happened to him, he replied, “I’m OK.” “Main music company se maar kha ke aa raha hoon (I was beaten up by a music company),” Abhay said.

“My film will be released on January 31,” he added. My song hasn’t been released yet because the record label wants me to get Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy to sign an illegal provision.”

T-Series is the music label, he disclosed.

Abhay later posted a couple photos of himself with the black eye on his Facebook account. He also published an open letter in which he explained the situation.

“Well, the entire music fraternity is up in arms against record labels because they expect musicians to sign a contract with a condition that is against the law,” one part of it said. Producers, such as myself, are supposed to make certain that they sign. That means the producer will be the one arrested for breaking the law!

I am also opposed to artists being exploited. I believe in their rights, and even if a musician were willing to sign it, I would tell them not to. As a result, I don’t have an album out yet. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if the music label pulled my commercials from the airwaves. I’m not on the radio anyway.”

In reaction to Abhay’s allegations, T-Series issued a detailed statement.

“We are concerned that spurious claims are being made against us in an arbitrary manner completely disregarding our valid and lawful concerns as a music label,” they said in their statement. We have every right to ask producers to furnish us with appropriate agreements with composers, lyricists, and singers since we can’t buy rights from someone who doesn’t have any to begin with. We can’t expect to release music without it, because the rights assigned to the producer aren’t clear.”

One By Two, on the other hand, was released on time despite the controversy and flopped at the box office.
