Kyunki Tum Hi Ho.. singer Arijit Singh has taken an extraordinary step to publicly apologise to Superstar Salman Khan asking him to forgive him for the ‘insult’ caused by him in the past.
r also made a passionate plea asking the actor to retain his song in the actor’s next release, Sultan.
Arijit, in an award function in 2014, had allegedly insulted Salman when he went to pick up an award for Kyunki Tum Hi Ho.. song. While on stage, he had said, ‘aap ne to sula hi diya (You made me sleep)’ implying that the actor’s presence had caused him enough boredom.
Arijit’s Facebook post read;
“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..
The singer, it seems had second thought after posting this Facebook message and decided to delete the public apology.
His next Facebook post said, “I hope he gets my letter through someway. Ps. This whole thing will backfire at me I know. Prayers..”
Salman has not commented on Arijit’s public apology and we don’t know if indeed Sultan will have the singer’s track.
The Sultan’s much awaited trailer was released amidst much fanfare yesterday.
