Earlier this week, speculations were rife that singer Arijit Singh had said something in a public forum to offend Bollywood’s Bhaijaan Salman Khan. Since neither came out in public and admitted to any falling out, industry sources were left wondering about what went wrong between the two.
Arijit, who has gained phenomenal success in Bollywood over the past few years, recently sang a song for Salman’s upcoming film ‘Sultan’. But, after rubbing Salman the wrong way, the actor decided to drop his song from the movie.
The singer put the speculations to rest when he issued a public apology to the actor via his social media account and requested him to keep the song in the movie. While the singer deleted his apology within an hour’s time, we’ve managed to secure a copy of his apology.
Arijit’s letter to Salman
“Dear Mr Salman Khan,
This is the last way I thought I would speak to you. I have been trying to text you call you and do everything possible to tell you that you are mistaken about the fact that I insulted you. I never did. That night in the show It was the wrong time and wrong aura.
Nevertheless you felt insulted And I understood and I felt extremely sorry about it as me and my family have been your fan since long. I tried to explain so many times but you never got it. I apologized but you never got it. How many times I sent you apology texts you also know.
At Nita Ji’s place I only came back to apologize to you but you dint get it. No problem I apologize here In front of everyone but please it is a request Please do not remove the song that I sang for you in Sultan. You want anyone else to sing this song, absolutely fine but keep a version at least. I have sung enough songs sir. But I want to retire with at least one song of you keeping in my library. Please do not take away this feeling.
I don’t know why am I doing this. I know the consequences. People are going to write their heart and mind and everything. I also know you won’t be bothered Mr Salman Khan. Still I think I need to take it out. After all I have to live with this fact that you made sure that I don’t sing for you even though so many of us requested.
But I will be a fan bhaijaan..
Jagg ghumeya thare jaisa na koi..
Let there be light”
Minutes after deleting the post, Arijit shared another message on his social media account that read, “I hope he gets my letter through someway. Ps. This whole thing will backfire at me I know. Prayers.”Back to latest news
