Vashu Bhagnani, the producer of the movie Welcome to New York, has finally claimed thatsong Ishtehaar was never recorded by Arijit Singh. Arijit Singh and Salman Khan were pitted against each other over Ishtehaar, a song that has been composed by Shamir Tandon. This song has garnered three millions views and it was alleged that Salman, who has a cameo in the film, has removed Arijit’s version of the song from the film and replaced it with that of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. This situation was compared with the dispute that occurred two years ago due to Jag Ghoomeya version in the movie Sultan.
Bhagnani said that he was not at all aware what was happening and was very confused. Later he confirmed that Arijit Singh never sang for Welcome to New York, so how can anyone remove his voice? He said these are all rumours & is a bad case of Chinese whispers. He later on said the composer of song and I was searching for a certain texture of voice & found that Rahat’s voice will suit perfectly.
