The actor-producer, who recently turned up with a black eye at a recent award ceremony held here, openly stated that T-Series has stalled the release of the music of his film "One By Two" as the music company wants him to get composer Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy to sign a clause first.
Several Indian musicians have lent their support to Abhay's effort in supporting the popular trio, who have composed the "One By Two" album.
Following Abhay's remonstration at the Life OK Screen Awards, celebrities took to Twitter to share their sentiments on the issue:
Sonu Nigam: The movie and music of 'One By Two' deserves your mad support now all the more. You have to do it for the sake of justice and order.
