- He was criticised by his Sikh fans for holding a glass of alcohol in his hand and dancing with girls while wearing a turban in a music video. So, he opted for a beanie cap rather than wearing a turban in his music videos. In an interview, he said,
It so happened that while shooting for a song, a glass of alcohol accidentally fell on my kada and turban. The turban is a matter of great pride for me and I don’t want to disrespect it, so I began sporting a beanie.” Times of India
- In 2017, he was brutally trolled for stealing the lyrics of one of the songs of the Indian rapper, Badshah and using it in his song ‘Burberry Checks.’ At the same time, there were rumours that Indeep had died in an accident. In an interview, he clarified all the rumours, he said,
The rap part of Kala Chashma was written by me. I, then, went up to the music company and gave them all the proof that the song was mine and they gave me the due credit. I fought for it because it was my song. I challenge anyone who claims that I lifted Badshah’s song to prove it. It is amazing that an artiste never writes before his fans or puts out his work for public viewing before it is properly released and so, how come these trollers are suggesting that Badshah wrote this song? Main toh kisi ko nahi bolta ki yaar main yeh gaana likh raha hoon, dhyaan rakhna, koi chori kar le. These are fake fan pages and they are running sponsored ads on them. Badshah is like my brother. I will continue to respect him. But professionally, the relationship is almost over. A video that was circulating was so well edited that even I was surprised. Even news channels picked it up. I had to tell everyone that I am very much alive. My shows started getting cancelled because apparently I was dead.” Asian Age
