Mumbai: The teaser of Varun Dhawan’s Taher Shah act on the sets of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ became an instant hit. However, the singer-composer from the other side of the border is reportedly upset with Dhawan for “mimicking” him.
According to a report in DNA, when the channel airing Kapil Sharma’s show approached Taher for the rights to use the song, his manager bluntly denied permission.
Apparently it was Varun’s idea to do the Taher Shah act while promoting his film ‘Dishoom’ with John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez on the comedy show.
Now, the channel is in a dilemma as they have shot the episode and wouldn’t be able to carry the segment if they do not get Shah’s consent.
“They are trying their best to convince Taher that he has not been mocked or made fun of, but if he remains adamant, they will have to go ahead without the song. It will be difficult as there is no other such slow song to which Varun can be shown lip-syncing. Also, it was Varun’s idea to do the jig,” dnaindia.com quoted a source close to the show as saying.
