Arijit Singh And Ali Zafar

Ali Zafar might get some relief when he found that his role in Dear Zindagi was kept integrated in spite of immense political pressure on Bollywood. At the same time, he must be remorseful to know that the songs he sang for Dear ZindagiTareefon Se and Tu Hi Hai – have also featured in the versions sung by Arijit Singh. Those two songs of Arijit Singh had featured on the soundtrack of the film. However, we got to hear the versions of Ali Zafar in the film.

According to some sources, Director Gauri Shinde persisted to retain the versions of Ali Zafar in Dear Zindagi. “However, she had no say in the dubbing of Ali’s songs by Arijit for the soundtrack,”

In fact, according to rumor mills of B-town, the reason behind keeping Arijit Singh onboard the OST was mainly to increase the brand value of the film. On the other end, some say that it was due to the insistence of co-producer Karan Johar who took this step just to avoid further controversy with the political outrages that he suffered with his own directed film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Here, we need to mention that Ae Dil Hai Mushkil was apparently banned in certain places for its casting of Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

Now, can we assume whether Arijit wanted to return the favor? After all, once he was replaced on the song Jag Ghoomeya from Sultan by the Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. And his replacement happened because of his argument with superstar Salman Khan. That time, Arijit stated, “Nowadays, no singer takes permission before dubbing another singer’s songs. Gone are the days of such courteous showmanship.”

Thankfully, what happened with Sultan, nothing has been repeated here with Dear Zindagi.
