Dabangg Khan replaces Arijit’s song again in Welcome To New York

Mumbai: Salman Khan removed Arijit Singh’s version of the song ‘Jag Ghoomeya’ from his 2016 blockbuster Sultan, it is now reported that he got yet another song of Arijit removed from the upcoming film Welcome to New York, which features a cameo song ‘Nain Phisal Gaye’ starring the Dabangg superstar along with Sonakshi Sinha. Salman apparently got Arijit Singh’s voice replaced with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan in Sultan.

Welcome to New York is a multi-starrer with a cast including Diljit Dosanjh, Karan Johar, Boman Irani and Ritesh Deshmukh, along with Sonakshi.

The Salman-Arijit feud dates back to an awards function which Salman had hosted and where Arijit came on stage wearing informal clothes and casual chappals. The two had exchanged barbed sarcasm on stage.

Producer Vashu Bhagnani has rubbished the rumours of Arijit’s version being dropped from Welcome To New York. In an interview, Bhagnani said that Arijit never sang any song for his film and he never sang for Welcome to New York in any capacity and this can be checked.

However, singer-turned Union Minister Babul Supriyo has demanded to remove Fateh Ali Khan’s voice from the album, citing the singer’s Pakistani nationality as a point of concern.

BJP minister singer Babul Supriyo says he is not able to comprehend the need or desire to cross the border for entertainment content at a time when war is no longer a remote concept.

Babul clarifies that India has no problems with either Atif or Rahat. “Atif as an artiste sounds great in ‘Dil Diya’ and Rahat is a great singer too. But it’s important to clarify that our problem is not with the artistes Atif or Rahat but with their Pakistani nationality.

Arijit’s musical career began when his guru Rajendra Prasad Hazari, who felt that “Indian classical music” was a dying tradition”, insisted he leave his hometown and participate in the reality show Fame Gurukul (2005) at the age of 18. During the show, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali recognised his talent and made him sing “Yun Shabnami”, a song scheduled to be used in his upcoming film Saawariya.
