Lightning, they say, never strikes the same place again. But Arijit Singh's career has been struck by lightning twice, originating from the same place.
While his song 'Jag Ghoomiya' in Sultan was re-rendered by Ustad Rahat Ali Khan, his new track for the film A Flying Jatt has now been dubbed in the voice of Atif Aslam.
While the people close to the development including composers Sachin-Jigar maintain the news is a hoax, sources close to Arijit Singh reveal that Bollywood's finest singer today has indeed been dubbed and snubbed again.
Arijit Singh himself remains noncommittal about the snub. "No one is irreplaceable, in any walk of life. Whether you are a singer or a doctor, there will always be others to take over your place."
Did the two singers from across the border speak to Arijit Singh before stepping in?
"No, that protocol is not followed by any singer today. If I replaced a singer, I wouldn't be expected to consult whichever singer I was replacing," says Arijit Singh.
