ARIJIT SINGH’S SONG REPLACED AGAIN BY A PAKISTANI VOICE
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.
