Things have not been going well for Dinesh Vijan's Bala. Immediately after the release of its trailer, the film found itself in a tussle against Abhishek Pathak's Ujda Chaman. However, Vijan claimed that their film is original and not adapted from anywhere.
Soon after, singer Dr. Zeus accused the Bala makers of ripping off his old hit song Don't Be Shy in a tweet. He further added that his lawyers would be getting in touch with the filmmakers.
