BOLLYWOOD: Arijit Singh may be one of the most sought after playback singers in Bollywood but not for Salman Khan who still seems to be holding grudges against the singer.
In 2016, singer Arijit Singh had shocked everyone when he posted a heartfelt letter on his Facebook page apologizing to Salman Khan and pleading him to retain his version of Jag Ghoomeya which was later replaced by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s version in Ali Abbas Zafar’s directorial Sultan. And if the recent reports are to be believed, Salman has shunned Arijit not just once but twice from crooning a song in his films.
Apparently, Salman once again snatched Arijit Singh’s chance in Tiger Zinda Hai and gave it away to Pakistani singer Atif Aslam who sung the romantic number Dil Diyan Gallan in the film. Yet again, Salman has reportedly denied the singer a chance in the upcoming multi-starrer film Welcome To New York by allegedly replacing his voice in Ishtehaar song which now has Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s voice.
While Welcome to New York stars an ensemble cast of Diljit Dosanjh, Sonakshi Sinha, Boman Irani, Rana Daggubati, Karan Johar, Ritesh Deshmukh, it also features Salman Khan in a special song Nain Phisal Gaye.
Arijit Singh and Salman Khan’s feud goes long way back to 2014 when the two had exchanged sharp remarks on stage at an award function. And since that day, Salman burned all the bridges between him and the Tum Hi Ho crooner.
