Web Desk: India’s singer Abhijeet Battacharya, who is nowadays known only for his controversies. And, his latest attack is against the superstar ShahRukh Khan, reported Bollywoodlife.
While speaking at the India Today Safaigiri Summit and Award 2018, Abhijeet claims, “I made superstars with my voice. Till the time I sang for Shah Rukh Khan, he was a rock star. When I stopped singing for him, he came down to Lungi Dance.”
And no, it’s not SRK who suddenly stopped working with Abhijeet, it’s actually the other way around. And Farah Khan has surely played a major part in upsetting the singer. The choreographer-director’s films are known for the end credits sequences, where all the stars and technicians make an appearance.
“It was a very small reason I stopped singing for Shah Rukh. In Main Hoon Na, they showed everyone from a spot boy to everyone else, but the singers. The same thing happened with Om Shanti Om. Stars sang Dhoom Tana. It was my voice. But it wasn’t shown anywhere. The self-respect was hurt. Why should I ask them to add my name? The problem is I don’t lack anything. So why should I ask for this?” said the singer.
Earlier, Abhijeet’s comments supporting Salman Khan post conviction in the hit-and-run case, digs at Karan Johar and others during ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ row had made headlines. He was also accused of molestation in 2015 and his abusive language towards journalists and women, have got him arrested once and also led to suspension of his Twitter account.
Abhijeet also insulted Atif Aslam on talent show and said those who don’t get recognition in Pakistan are being promoted in India at our cost. In 2013, he even petitioned the Indian Government to ban Pakistani singers performing in India.
