  • Welcome To... composer defends right to use Pakistani voice

Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, who is facing a backlash for singing the song titled "Ishtehar" - a soulful rendition - for Indian film production "Welcome To New York", says music has no boundaries. Although later it was clarified that Arijit was never even offered that particular song but Babul didn't step back from taking on Salman Khan and all the other actors/filmmakers who choose to give opportunities to Pakistani artistes, despite having such great talent in India.

Amid the Welcome To New York row over aced Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan giving his voice for the song Ishtehaar, Indian Films and TV producer council has chose to pass a resolution against Pakistani artists working in the Hindi Film Industry. I don't understand why we are being targeted like this.

Soon after the song released, Babul Supriyo had demanded that the song be banned or have Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's voice removed and replaced in the song.

Directed by Chakri Toleti and Produced by Pooja Films and Wiz Films with Music by Pooja Music, "Welcome To New York" releases worldwide on February 23rd, 2018.

However, she has now apologized in a press conference. "It is my fault that I failed to keep track of team-mates behind me". Another said that it was, "truly a shame to see the athletes bully one another, and they represent the Republic of Korea".


Supriyo recalled the promise made during the "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" controversy, which starred popular Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, and said, "I feel this is the right time to take a stand, and probably have a temporary ban".

Supriyo had earlier said he was not able to comprehend the need or desire to cross the border for entertainment content at a time when tensions on the India-Pakistan border had escalated. "This is in no way to say we are against Pakistani artists at all". An unexpected trip to NY sets them off on a comedic adventure that changes their lives forever.

Welcome To New York's song Ishtehaar is picturised on Sonakshi Sinha and Diljit Dosanjh, the lead characters of the film. If film stars take a stand, it will be good for India.
