Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt-starrer ‘Brahmastra’ seems to be in the midst of a controversy.

While the internet is still having its laugh over the lyrics, the song’s facing accusations of plagiarism.

As per reports, there are allegations that the chorus of ‘Kesariya’ has allegedly been copied from the song ‘Laaree Chootee’, a composition by Pakistani band ‘Call The Band’.
