Kapil Sharma finds himself in yet another controversy due to a recent episode of his popular comedy show, ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’. As the show approaches its end, with the comedian embarking on an international tour, he now faces negative headlines for an entirely different reason. Lyricist Kunaal Vermaa took to social media to share a video expressing his disappointment with Kapil for wrongly crediting other lyricists for his songs.

The incident occurred when Kapil introduced AM Turaz, referring to him as the lyricist behind renowned songs like ‘Khalibali’, ‘Ghoomar’ (from ‘Padmaavat’), ‘Aayat’ (from ‘Bajirao Mastani’), and ‘Tum Hi Aana’ (from ‘Marjaavaan’). However, what caught Vermaa's attention was the last song mentioned, as he himself penned the lyrics for "Tum Hi Aana." For those unfamiliar, Kunaal Vermaa has contributed his talents to films like ‘Simba’, ‘Race 3’, ‘Malang’, ‘Half Girlfriend’, among others.
Recently, Kunaal Vermaa has provided an update and released a statement requesting an apology from the host and the show's producers. In the statement, he claimed: “A recent incident in which AM Turaz was introduced on a renowned show which is The Kapil Sharma Show as the man behind the lyrics for ‘Tum Hi Aana’. I was taken aback with surprise that a man who is not associated with the song is getting all the credits.”
He further said in the statement, “I do not blame Kapil Sharma at all. He is my favourite host and I believe he is an amazing person in personal as well but the management team or the research/ writers of the show would atleast spare some time and could have done a proper R&D before giving an introduction to the host of the show. Not only that when I approached the management team with this issue the response which I got was ‘we will get back to you we are busy right now’. It has been 2 days since I am waiting for one revert or an apology or a rectification for their mistake which I clearly deserve. I think Kapil Sharma’s management team wouldn’t have even informed Kapil about me approaching with this issue. I don’t think he would be even knowing about it.”
Kunaal Vermaa concluded saying, “I would request AM Turaz and Sony channel and Kapil Sharma’s management team to apologise for their mistake and try not to repeat the same with some other deserving name and rectify their mistake by informing people that I am the one who has written ‘Tum hi Aana’. I hope Turaz bhai, Kapil bhai and Sony TV don’t take this as my anger or agitation but my pain and concern that I have felt towards my work.”
