Why did Ram Sampath walk out of Amitabh Bachchan’s Bhootnath Returns?

After Sonu Nigam, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Kailash Kher, another music director walks out of a film. Read on to know why…

Ram Sampath has had a fall out with the T-Series owner Bhushan Kumar. The ace music director has walked out of Abhay Chopra’s Bhootnath Returns starring Amitabh Bachchan and Boman Irani. Our khabroo informs that the fall out happened because of the music royalties’ issue. If we remember during the trailer launch of the film, the names of the music directors were not mentioned and when Bhushan Kumar was questioned about the same he had said that it was “just a trailer launch.”

What is Kailash Kher’s take on the music royalty issue?

Now we get to see the real reason for not disclosing the name of the music directors. Talking to a leading daily a source informed, “Ram had a difficult time with the producers of the film due to their differing views on the music royalty issue. Now he has decided to not work on this film.” In his defence Bhushan informed, “Once the music goes on air next week, the composers’ names will be mentioned.” He also agreed to the fact that Ram Sampath was one of the three music directors working on the film. Talking to a leading daily Ram hesitatingly mentioned that he parted amicably from the project and there was no bad blood between him and Bhushan. He said, “Let’s just say that I left the project due to creative disagreements. That’s all there is to it and I have nothing else to say.”

AR Rahman supports singers in the royalty war against music companies

The music royalties’ controversy is catching up fast in the film industry. A war which was initially started by Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan has taken Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Kailash Kher, AR Rahman and Abhay Deol in its stride. Only time will tell whether music labels give in to the demands of musicians or not. We hope it happens as we don’t want to see our favourite musicians leave good projects just for some copyright issues. Hai na peeps?
