The Indian music industry, in fact, has been hit by a string of music deals which are said to have attracted the attention of several Hollywood names.
A lot of these acquisitions were done through Bollywood talent agency Bollywood Sound, which is owned by Shazam founder Jack Dorsey.
While the deals were said to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars, it is now said that some of the deals have not been honoured.
For instance, in 2018, a deal with Kunal Bhandari to create a new Indian music channel was reportedly not honoured, according to reports.
Another Bollywood celebrity, Rajdeep Sardisai, had a music channel called Bajrang Sangam cancelled by Bollywood label Bajan Music.
