The Pulwama incident that took place on 14th February shocked the entire nation as it claimed the lives of almost 44 CRPF jawans. Almost in every film of Salman Khan, there has been a Pakistani element in the music. From Dil Diya Gallan by Atif Aslam to Jag Ghoomiya by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, the Pakistan Singers have managed to create their place in Indian Cinema.
Apparently, Salman Khan fans have demanded to get rid of songs that are sung by Pakistani singers. Even Twitter was flooded by a lot of tweets and warned the superstar that if Pakistani singers are going to sing in the film, then they won’t watch the film.
Taking a step for the martyrs of Pulwama incident, Salman has donated a substantial sum to the Martyr’s Fund and also ensured that the songs have been removed from Bharat.
A source reveals, “This time, Salman knows that he can’t ignore the demand to ban but the Pakistani singers. And while he believes the voices of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Atif Aslam suit him best, there are far bigger truths to tackle right now. To cling stubbornly to the unwanted elements for purely selfish reasons would damage his reputation severely. That is a risk he is not willing to take.”
The source further stated, “They will re-record the songs in Indian voices and pretend that the other voices from over the barbed fence never happened,” says a close friend of the superstar.
Moreover, it has been reported that Salman has removed one song that was sung by Atif Aslam from the upcoming movie Notebook. The reports stated, “Salman Khan has asked his production house Salman Khan Films to replace Atif Aslam song from Notebook.”
As per the reports, no new singer has been roped in for Notebook. The song will be again recorded by an Indian singer in just a few days. The film, Notebook is being produced by Salman Khan Films and will mark the debut of Mohnish Bahl’s daughter Pranutan and newcomer Zaheer Iqbal.
