Aamir Khan's show "Satyamev Jayate", which has garnered a positive response from TV viewers, has got stuck in a copyright issue filed against Ram Sampath, the music composer of the title track, by Palash Sen the lead singer of Euphoria.
According to reports, Sen claims that the chorus of the song "Satyamev Jayate" has been lifted from his band's old song which was also named "Satyamev Jayate". The band has requested the team of "Satyamev Jayate" to give them credit for the song.
Music composer Ram Sampath claims his team is preparing for a strong fitting reply and has requested people to listen to the two songs before jumping to conclusions.
"'Satyamev Jayate' is a show that raises important, pertinent issues of national concern and I would not like attention to be diverted from them. Therefore, I am more than happy to clear my name in court as I have great faith in the Indian judiciary. Our team is preparing a strong fitting reply. I also request people to listen to the two songs before jumping to conclusions," Ram Sampath said in a statement.
Palash Sen's PR Manager said: "Since the band has been touring and performing at concerts we got to know about it late. A fan posted it on the Facebook page and that is how we got to know about it. We sent a legal notice to Star India and Aamir Khan Productions on Saturday."
"We have not yet received any response on it. Our legal team will be in touch with their legal advisers. We just want them to give us credit because the entire song is around the chorus of our song "Satyamev Jayate" from our album in the year," Sen's PR Manager added.

People should understand that Euphoria has nothing against Aamir Khan, and infact did not file a court case because they didn't want the show to be stopped. It's only against Ram Sampath the composer. So people shouldn't get personal as if it's against Aamir 'cause it's not. Apart from that, the court will decide on who's right !

There is nothing in comman when it comes to the song and besides Styamev Jayte is a show that raises important issues and make people aware of it. So pulling it because of it's title track is unethical and absurd.
It is very brave of Aamir to bring the important & sensitive social issues to lime light. People should welcome his efforts rather than back biting! Hats off to Aamir - you are doing a good job. Lots of big Bolywood starts came to TV to do mainly entertainment programmes; however Aamir is league of his own - he came up with this brave & provocative concept to the betterment of the society. God bless.
