Salman Khan's open support for Pakistani artist draws irk of fans back at home
MUMBAI - Bollywood superstar Salman Khan made a decision that attracted some negative and derogatory comments from the Indian fans after the ‘Dabangg’ actor chose Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan to sing for ‘Welcome to New York’ over Indian singer Arjit Singh.
Reportedly there had been some bad beefs between Salman and Arjit for quite some time and the superstar’s decision of replacing him was also because of that apparent fight. However, this replacement didn’t go so well with Arjit’s fans who called Salman a ‘traitor’ for his act.
It was also reported that the ‘Channa Mereyan’ singer had recorded songs such as ‘Dil Diyan Gallan’ for ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ but Salman re-recorded the songs with Atif Aslam.
All these replacements irked the Indian fans of the stars and started bashing Salman for his decision and accused him for betraying his nation while siding with the rival country. Indian singer Babul Supriyo even demanded a ban on Pakistani singers from recording songs for Indian movies following this havoc.
