Singer-turned-Union minister Babul Supriyo says Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's voice in a song that features in Bollywood film Welcome To New York , must be removed and dubbed by someone else.
Actor Salman Khan reportedly got Arijit Singh's voice replaced in Tiger Zinda Hai , and is said to have done it again for Welcome To New York .
"If that's true, I would request the makers of the film to remove Rahat's voice and get someone else to dub it. I am also not sure why Atif Aslam got to sing Dil Diya Gallan when for sure our very own Arijit could have done a much better job," Supriyo said.
Supriyo's comments come at a time when tensions on the India-Pakistan border have escalated.
He, however, clarified that India has no problems with either Aslam or Khan.
"Atif as an artist sounds great in Dil Diya Gallan and Rahat is a great singer too. But it's important to clarify that our problem is not with the artists... It's not a political stand but probably the families who have lost their sons, brothers, fathers would feel a lot better should the entire country show solidarity in any manner possible," he added.
