I’m not sure why he isn’t taking part in the activity, but, as a producer, I see that work promised hasn’t been executed,” Kumar said in a statement. But we needed Atif for this song. Earlier this month, politician Babul Supriyo had asked for a ban on Pakistani artistes working in the Hindi film industry. “Atif said he will do it, but it hasn’t been done. Kumar said, “Normally, such statements are made by fringe groups. “Sehmi hai dhadkan” was launched on February 22 as the first song from Sudhir Mishra’s film Daas Dev, a contemporary take on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s novel Devdas. He had also objected to the inclusion of Pakistan singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s voice in the film “Welcome To New York”. When a minister says it, it leaves an impact on more people. Imagine the kind of traction we would have got had he promoted it.”
Daas Dev stars Richa Chadha, Aditi Rao Hydari and Rahul Bhat. His latest song “Dil Diyan Gallan” from Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai was a super hit. Atif has lent his voice to a number of Bollywood chartbusters like “Jeena Jeena”, “Pehli Dafa”, “Aadat” and “Tera Hone Laga Hu” among others. 2018-02-28T18:11:34+00:00″>
