I Thought Salman Had Forgiven Me And Recorded The Song: Arijit Singh Reveals All!
In 2014, when Salman Khan and Riteish Deshmukh invited Arijit Singh to the stage to offer him an award for his Tum Hi Ho number, Arijit apparently took some time to come over. When asked what kept him, the singer joked saying, “"Aap logon ne toh sula diya…(you guys put me to sleep)”. Not the smartest sentence to tell Salman Khan when receiving an award from him, isn’t it? Salman retorted with, “Aur isme humara koi dosh nahi hai, agar aise hi gaane bajte rahenge…(not our fault that the songs are so boring)”.
Well, though it seemed like everyone was a sport on stage, Arijit claims that he realized his folly the moment he uttered the sentence and also apologized in Salman’s ear immediately. This is what the singer had to say, “I was also nervous as it was my first awards show. Salman Khan looked at me and started to laugh as I obviously didn’t look like a winner in casuals and slippers. When he asked me if I had fallen asleep, it slipped out of my mouth from nervousness and embarrassment. It wasn’t directed at him or anyone in particular but I knew I shouldn’t have said it. I am a huge fan of Salman’s work and I felt terrible. When he hugged me on the stage, I apologised in his ear and went back. The same night I texted him a "sorry” and followed it up with a long apology note. He replied in the morning with a rebuke and advised me on how to behave. But he added that he was okay, which made me happy and relieved. It was only later that I realised he wasn’t. I have been apologising for almost three years now.“
He added, "When I was summoned to sing a song for Salman’s Eid release, I thought maybe he had forgiven me and recorded the song. Everyone okayed it but I heard last night that he doesn’t want my voice in the final master. That really hurt."
