The past year was a jinx for couples in both Hollywood and Bollywood where couples including Brad Pitt- Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp-Amber Herd split. Closer home in Bollywood, Farhan Akhtar-Adhuna Bhabani, Malaika Arora-Arbaaz Khan and Katrina Kaif- Ranbir Kapoor called it quits. And looks like the jinx of last year has carried forward to this year as well. Earlier this month, actress Nandita Das announced separation from husband Subodh Maskara.

Vishal, along with his composer friend Shekhar Ravjiani has given many hits like Sultan, Befikre and Chennai Express. Recently, the duo was accused of plagiarizing the music of the song Nashe Si Chad Gayi from Befikre. Reacting to these accusations, Vishal had said:

Haven’t copied a tune in 17 years. Not about to start now. Bizarre and uncanny coincidence, but anything I say will sound defensive, so I’m not even going to try. There is no doubt, the melodies of both first lines are exactly the same

Vishal is also active on Twitter where he expresses displeasure about the things he doesn’t like.
