INTERESTINGLY, ARIJIT SINGH NEVER SANG FOR 'WELCOME TO NEW YORK'

Trending for the past few days on every news portal is the unending disagreement between Salman Khan and former Indian singer Arijit Singh. From all the information gathered, the Badshah of Bollywood was reported to reject a song by the singer in the upcoming film 'Welcome to New York'. 'Welcome to New York' is a multi Starrer film. Actors in the film include Karan Johar, Diljit Dosanjh, Sonakshi Sinha, Boman Irani, Rana Daggubati, including Salman Khan who was featured in a special song. As reported by Hindustan Times, former Bollywood singer and union minister Babul Supriyo had demanded that Bollywood should make use more of Indian singers than Pakistani singers. He then asked the makers of the upcoming film, Welcome to New York, to re-record a song sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan with an Indian singer. Arijit -Salman Ever since he made the statement, assumptions were made that his statement was because of some misunderstandings they once had. However, as reported by India Today, Arijit never recorded any song for the multi-starrer film. He was quoted saying "I saw all this on TV and online and was so confused as to what was happening. Arijit Singh never sang for Welcome to New York in any capacity and this can be checked. He never sang a scratch either." Speaking further, he said, "Shamir (Tandon), the composer of the song and I were interested in a certain texture of voice and Rahat suited it perfectly. So we asked him. If Arijit didn't sing, how can anyone remove his voice?" The issue between Arijit Singh and Salman Khan was due to the fact that, the actor gave no response to a long post on Facebook written by the singer as a plea to let his version of the song 'Jag Ghoomeya' stay in the film 'Sultan'. As reported, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's version was used for the film. With the official statement made by the former singer, all assumptions have now been laid to rest.
