AR­I­JIT SINGH’S SONG RE­PLACED AGAIN BY A PAK­ISTANI VOICE

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Sub­hash K Jha

They say, light­ning never strikes the same place twice. But that doesn’t hold true for singer Ar­i­jit Singh. While his song Jag Ghoomiya in Sul­tan was re-ren­dered by Pak­istan’s Us­tad Ra­hat Ali Khan, his new track for the film, The Fly­ing Jatt, has now been dubbed in the voice of Pak­istani singer Atif As­lam.

While those close to the de­vel­op­ment, in­clud­ing com­posers Sachin-Ji­gar, main­tain the news is a hoax, sources close to Ar­i­jit re­veal he has in­deed been dubbed and snubbed again.

Ar­i­jit re­mains non­com­mit­tal about the snub, and says: “No one is ir­re­place­able in any walk of life. Whether you are a singer or a doc­tor, there will al­ways be oth­ers to take over your place.” Did the two singers from across the bor­der speak to Ar­i­jit be­fore step­ping in? “No, that pro­to­col is not fol­lowed by any singer. If I re­placed a singer I wouldn’t be ex­pected to con­sult the one I was re­plac­ing,” he adds.
