Mumbai: The very talented singer – Arijit Singh – did something completely unexpected Tuesday night. The super-hit singer took to his Facebook page to write an open letter to apologise to Bollywood heavyweight Salman Khan. He also requested the superstar to retain a song sung by him for ‘Sultan’.
What really went wrong between the two remains unknown yet but speculations are rife that the singer irked the hunk of an actor during a music event.
And Arijit mentioned about the instance when he supposedly angered the Bollywood titan and has apparently been trying to reach out to him apologising for the same. But there has been no response from Salman since then.
Here’s what he wrote in the letter which he subsequently deleted.
“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..
Let there be light”
But the playback singer knew that the letter could land him in trouble. So he wrote:
