Controversies

Conflict with Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala

Sidhu Moose Wala was good friends with the Punjabi singer Karan Aujla, but a feud arose between the two, and Karan allegedly leaked various songs of Moosewala before their release. In 2018, Aujla released the song ‘Up & Down’ with Deep Jandu in which he defamed Sidhu. This didn’t go well with Sidhu, and he released a diss track ‘Warning Shots’ targetting Karan Aujla. In response to Moosewala’s Warning Shots song, Karan released the counter song Lafaafe in 2018. Thereafter, a cold war started between them. Subsequently, they were often spotted targeting each other on social media through songs and during live music concerts. [6]The Tribune Elly Mangat, the then-colleague of Sidhu and Aujla, revealed in an interview with a media house that a music video by Sidhu, which was intended to defame Karan, was leaked to the management of Karan. Consequently, the incident initiated a rivalry between the two after Karan’s management threatened to attack Sidhu. However, later, in an interview with a media house, Karan Aujla was spotted praising the work of Sidhu Moose Wala, and in the same conversation, he revealed that the song ‘Lafaafe’ was not written by him.

As per some media sources, Sukhpreet Singh Budda demanded a ransom of Rs 20 lakhs from Sandeep Rehan during his visit to Punjab in March 2019.

On 9 June 2019, Davinder Bambiha’s gang, posted on Facebook and revealed that the attack on Karan Aujla was carried out by Sukhpreet Singh Budda’s gang. The post read,

I want to tell you that as a dispute is going on between Sandeep Rehaan and Karan Aujla (Rehan Records) with our brother Sukhpreet Budda, due to that they got z+ security to put pressure. That security has not accompanied them to Canada. Our brother Sukhpreet Budda, to teach them a lesson, made two attempts to attack them in a day in Canada.”

However, soon after Sukhpreet’s gang took responsibility for the attack, a Facebook page titled Sukhpreet Budda, claimed that the attack was not initiated by them. [7]The Times of India On 9 June 2019, Karan posted an Instagram story in which he clarified that the news of the attack on him was a rumour spread by the news channels.

Fined for breaking traffic rules

On 22 November 2019, a TikTok video went viral over the internet in which Karan allegedly violated the traffic rules during his visit to India. Karan along with friends and fans rashly drove their vehicles at the Chandigarh airport road without wearing seat belts.

Violated the security rules during his visit to the Central Jail in Ludhiana

On 7 April 2021, Karan stirred controversy for violating the security and Covid protocols during his visit to the Central Jail in Ludhiana.

Along with Karan, a few private vehicles of his friends also entered the jail premises, where the entry of any private vehicle was prohibited. It was alleged that Karan and his friends entered the premises without depositing their cell phones, without any security checks, and without wearing any masks. However, jail superintendent Rajiv Arora gave clarifications in favour of Karan’s visit to the Central Jail and said,

Karan Aujla is my family friend. He is my son’s good friend. He just came on a personal visit with 4-5 other friends. They sat in my office for few minutes only and later we went to my official residence for lunch. He is not a criminal and the matter is being blown out of proportion.” [9]The Tribune

Karan Aujla… How long will you provide damage to your friends? We know where your sister lives, and the one who stays by your side, her boutique. But we don’t want to harm them. We’ve done this to you in Canada. We are waiting for your Europe tour and in India our brother Harry Chatha is waiting for you. How much time will be left to change the address, if not today, then tomorrow will come in handy.”
