Arijit Singh, best remembered for his renditions of hit tracks from films like Aashiqui 2 and Dilwale seemed to be at a loss on Tuesday night. In fact Singh, who has recently recorded a track for the upcoming Salman Khan starrer Sultan, apparently rubbed the star the wrong way and was slighted for the same. However in an attempt to set the record straight Arijit posted a public apology on his facebook page (which he incidentally later deleted) urging Salman not to drop his song from Sultan.
Below is a copy of Arijit's apologetic post:
"Dear Mr Salman Khan
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 ko…
Let there be light"
Though it still remains unclear on how Arijit insulted Salman Khan, the singer later deleted his Facebook apology and replaced it saying, "I hope he gets my letter through someway. Ps. This whole thing will backfire at me I know. Prayers…"
