Singer Arijit Singh's well-intended, but, woefully mistimed public apology to Salman Khan seems to have had a positive effect.
To flashback to the root of the rancour…apparently, at an awards function Salman Khan had said that Arijit's song 'Tum Hi Ho' in Aashiqui 2 puts him to sleep. To this, Arijit had reacted with a smirky, 'Nice!'
Says a source close to the development, "Arijit over-reacted. Salman's anger was not directed at Arijit. Salman was actually pissed off at an awards function by Mithoon (the composer of the Aashiqui 2 numbers) who had reacted rudely to Salman's remarks."
Apparently, after Arijit's public apology, the song in Sultan will be retained. Says a source, "It's not been decided whether Salman will agree to lip-sync Arijit's song. But, the song won't be removed from the soundtrack."
