Everyone knows that pleasing Salman Khan is not as easy as loving him!

The Bollywood superstar has had his share of tiffs with the film fraternity and people have gone to great lengths to win him back. This time it’s ace playback singer Arijit Singh’s turn.

It seems however, that the war between the two has transcended from personal to professional.

Arijit who has sung a number for Salman’s upcoming film Sultan, has issued an open letter requesting the makers to retain his version, which Salman has decided to axe from the film.

Apparently, Arijit has tried to reach out to the superstar in every way possible to apologise for an incident where the Bajrangi Bhaijaan felt insulted. As a last resort, the Tum Hi Ho hitmaker took to Facebook.

The letter which now has been deleted read:

“Dear Mr Salman Khan,

This is the last way I thought I would speak to you. I have been trying to call you text you and do everything possible to tell you that you are mistaken about the fact that I insulted you, I never did. That night in the show it was the wrong time and the wrong aura.

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 apologised 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 apologise to you but you didn’t get it. No problem I apologise 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 that 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 koi.

Yours truly,

Arijit Singh

Fawad Khan to star in Salman Khan’s upcoming venture

Although Arijit deleted his letter, he really wished his apology would reach the superstar.

But he knew that his act might backfire and it sure did!

Many fans were disappointed by the singer as they believed he shouldn’t have ‘begged’ Salman.

But others really wish the kind-hearted Sallu accepts Arijit with open arms.

While some are hopeful that things will be better between the two. PHOTO: FACEBOOK

Is he getting married or is he not? Salman Khan finally breaks silence

We aren’t sure if he will forgive Arijit or not, as he says…


The most intriguing part of this whole incident though is this question: What did Arijit do to irk Salman? No one knows. But will we ever find out?

    Hey Entertainment Desk.. If you guys seriously don’t know that why Arjit singh is literally on his knees beginning for Salman to forgive him, then why are you even at the entertainment desk, do something better with your time.

    leme inform you, Arjit Singh acted like a little 12 year old at an award ceremony, which Salman Khan was hosting. Arjit Sing was asleep when he was called for receiving his award on stage. It was not only unprofessional but highly disrespectful. SO yeah that’s the background.

    Now again do something better with your time.Recommend

    Salman Khan is a spoilt brat who has many criminal acts behind him.. Forget apologizing to him, one must hope he is swiftly jailed for his wrongdoings. It is only the inefficient judicial system in India that lets him go strutting about…Recommend

    @harkol He only has 2 cases behind him. One for shooting an animal- black buck (hunting) which is banned in India(he didn’t know) and second case for drunk driving accident.
    Our judicial system is very good. It takes time, cause of less courts…but it’s very fair. You can’t blame police mishandling case, evidence tampered with by them on courts.. Courts can only give verdict based on things put before them by police, not give verdict based on assumptions. Also case is still on..nt over Recommend

    He who does not understand your words, how can he understand your apology? A hero only in Bollywood community. One may smile, smile again and still be villain! Recommend

    @Khan: Don’t create your own stories. He runs his own charity foundation “Being Human” that funds treatments for cancer Patients, homeless kids, provides education , helps aids patients. He does free charity shows to raise money for different causes. He is hero to all those common people he saved lives off. Recommend
