Arijit Singh’s Song Removed From Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

Salman Khan has revived the careers of many stars in B-town. The Sultan star has also ensured the downward slump of many stars who haven’t been in his good books. One such is the story of singer Arijit Singh, who got into trouble with Salman Khan years ago.

The beginning of the feud can be marked back to 2014 when Arijit tried to pull the superstar’s leg when he was the host at an award show. Arijit said, “Kya sir sula diya aapne” to which the superstar was quick to reply. Salman Khan replied, “Aur isme humara koi dosh nahi hai, agar aise gaane bajte rahenge” and hummed the tune of Arijit’s Tum Hi Ho.

Post that incident, Arijit Singh’s pre-recorded songs were removed from Kick and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Two years later, Arijit Singh’s songs were removed from Salman Khan’s Sultan. An upset Arijit Singh took to Facebook and wrote a message:

“Please do not remove the song that I sang for you in Sultan. I want to retire with at least one song of you keeping in my library. Please do not take away this feeling.”

And it looks like Salman Khan is still reluctant to forgive the singer. In the upcoming movie Welcome To New York Salman Khan makes a cameo appearance. Arijit Singh had sung the rough version of a song in the movie. Salman Khan had requested the makers of the movie to replace Arijit Singh and Arijit Singh’s voice is now replaced by Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
