Arijit Singh recently made headlines when he posted a public apology on Facebook to Salman Khan, insisting that the superstar re-consider axing his song from Sultan.

The Bajrangi Bhaijaan star has finally opened up to media about the most-talked about tiff of B-town between him and Tum Hi Ho hit-maker.

Arijit Singh publicly apologises to Salman Khan. But why?

According to Deccan Chronicle, when questioned about Arijit's desperate apology, the Dabang star asked nonchalantly, "Who is that?"

He then clarified that removing Arijit's song from the film wasn’t his call.

"In every film there are lot of singers who sing and director and producer who make the choice of who is going to be the best voice for the film,” said Salman.

Salman explained that even his own song didn't make the cut.

“One voice was mine but that was also rejected, so why get so upset and so hurt. This is life," Deccan Chronicle reports Salman as saying.

The controversy dates back to 2014 when Arijit received an award at an event hosted by Salman. SCREENGRAB

The real reason behind Salman-Arijit controversy

"There should be a day when a person (actor) should say don't sing or sing. Smart ones don't turn out bright. Then smart comments ... post... they don't... you come to know the intentions," he added, seemingly taking a dig at Arijit.

The song Jag Ghoomeya was initially recorded by Arijit but it was re-recorded in Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's voice.

Raisani | 4 years ago | Reply | Recommend The so-called Dabang star. Arjit way better and bigger artist than you and by apologizing publicly he showed he's a human with and great heart. And you are showing arrogance you punter. Lots of respect for Arjit.
