Bollywood singer Badshah has addressed the plagiarism accusations against him as his latest song Genda Phool is said to be a plagiarised version of Ratan Kahar's Bengali folk song. The rapper has already extended monetary help to Ratan and now plans to record a song with him once the lockdown is over.

Turning down claims of plagiarising the song without Ratan's permission, Badshah told in an interview, "If it was a case of plagiarism, we would be facing the consequences by now. The original song has been recreated several times in the past, even in Bengali films, and Ratan ji has never been credited. The rapper has now promised to "meet him and record a song with him."
