Abhay Deol’s support to Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, the composers of his upcoming film ‘One By Two’, has earned him appreciation from the music fraternity.

Deol, who is making his debut as a producer with ‘One By Two’, said he was not happy the way music label T-series is marketing the film. During the recently held Screen awards, he was spotted with a ‘black eye’ as a symbol of protest.

Deol said that the music giant is not releasing music of his new film because Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy insisted on not signing an “illegal” clause concerned with the copyright of film’s music.
