Mumbai: After Javed Akhtar's tweet, Lyricist Sameer expressed his shock over his name in the credits of the film PM Narendra Modi starring Vivek Oberoi.
Sameer told Mid-Day that he has not contributed to the film in any manner and has tried to reach out to the makers about the same issue. He told the tabloid, "After reading his tweet, I called Javed saab to tell him that I too was not approached by the filmmaker or the production house to work on the biopic. I haven’t written any song for the movie. I don’t understand what they are crediting me for."
Surprisingly, Sameer claimed that he tried contacting the music label T-Series but they are too clueless about it. “Even if the makers have used any of my old songs, the music label should be aware. But in this case, they too are clueless," Sameer revealed.
Before Sameer, Javed Akhtar had expressed his disappointment on Twitter. He wrote, "Am shocked to find my name on the poster of this film. Have not written any songs for it!”
