Actor Aamir Khan’s much-talked TV debut show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ has landed in a controversy after rock band Euphoria filed a legal notice against it alleging copyright violation.

The band claims that the composer Ram Sampath has lifted its 12-year-old song ‘Satyamev Jayate’ from the album ‘Phir Dhoom’ for the show’s 22 minute-long anthem.

“We were busy with our upcoming album and were uploading our recent song in Facebook when we got to know from people’s comments that Aamir Khan’s show’s promo is carrying the same song like ours. We also heard it and found the similarities. Following that we sent a legal notice to them. We just need a credit for our work,” Palash Sen,the band’s lead singer,said.

Sampath refused to comment on the issue. Even the Star channel,when contacted,offered no comments.
