Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is busy gearing for the release of his next ‘Zero’. The Aanand L Rai directorial has the Badshah depicting dual roles one of a vertically challenged man and the other of a normal person. The Khan who has a huge fan following all over the globe was recently insulted by singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya at an event.
Abhijeet Bhattacharya who has sung a number of popular songs for King Khan be it for ‘Yes Boss’ to ‘Main Hoon Na’ that went on to become chartbusters at the recent event of India Today Safaigiri Summit and Awards 2018, while interacting with the media went on to say that it was his voice that made Shahrukh Khan a superstar and the moment he stopped singing for the King of Romance, he has come down to ‘Lungi Dance’.
Speaking to Quint the singer said, “I made superstars with my voice. Till the time I sang for Shahrukh Khan, he was a rock star. When I stopped singing for him – and I stopped singing for him – he came down to Lungi Dance.”
He further revealed the reason he stopped singing for the superstar. He was hurt that in ‘Main Hoon Na’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’, the entire bunch of spot boy and technicians were included in the promotional song except for the singers. He added that his self-respect was hurt.
In an interview in 2012, Abhijeet had said that he will patch up with the ‘Raees’ star if he apologises to him. We wonder what SRK has to say about Abhijeet’s claim that his voice made the actor a superstar.
