|Controversies||• He opted for beanie cap instead of wearing a turban; as he was criticised by his Sikh fans for holding a glass of alcohol and dancing with girls in a music video while wearing a turban in one of his songs. 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, there were rumours that he used the lyrics of Badshah in his song ‘Burberry Checks.’ There were other 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. 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
