Musicians hail Abhay's open tussle with music label

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.

Sunidhi Chauhan: Hats off to you Abhay Deol. I'm speechless at your stand. Respect. Always.

Kailash Kher: Appreciate Abhay Deol's stand, he had choice but he chose to save art and artistes from illegal contracts. Hope all actors and producers join this.

Shreya Ghoshal: Abhay Deol you are truly a brave heart! You are the first producer to speak up against the wrong. The entire music fraternity is with you.

Vishal Dadlani: Today, Abhay Deol has shown he is a man of principles and courage. He's won the admiration and thanks of the entire film music fraternity.

Ehsaan Noorani: Whatever happens whether the music releases or not 'One By Two' film needs all your support people!

Alisha Chinai: Abhay Deol thanks a billion for supporting the music fraternity. No more illegal contracts for us. Boycott the music mafia!

Mahalakshmi Iyer: Abhay Deol, respect! As a young producer you have shown guts and gumption to take them on. The music fraternity will be eternally grateful!

Sophie Choudry: Abhay Deol, massive respect. May your courage be contagious!
