“Aap mazaak vo karo jo aap apne baap ke liye sun saki,” said a visibly hurt Sonu Nigam in a Bollywood Hungama exclusive with Faridoon Shahryar today. Sonu was reacting to the dialogue ‘Rafi gaate kum rote zyada the’ from Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which had prompted him to tweet yesterday, “RIP Adab. We Indians, no longer need you Darling.” On being told that the justification for the dialogue that is being given is that Anushka’s character in the film is known to be offensive and pass wild judgements, Sonu said that if someone jokes about your father in a distasteful manner and your father is a big achiever then will you say it’s Art, or it was just a joke!
Mohammad Rafi sahab’s son Shahid Rafi is outraged. He says millions have already seen the film and the damage has been done. He expects an apology letter from the makers of the film. He also said that on his Facebook account over 9000 comments have been posted about this matter and that fans of Rafi Sahab will peacefully Protest in Mumbai on November 2.
