Salman Khan’s Fight With Lyricist Mithoon
When lyricist Mithoon came to the stage to receive the award for his composition for ‘Aashiqui 2’ that starred Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, Salman got furious when the music director told him that he and other awardee singers had to wait for so long. In return, Salman just acted negatively.
Salman Khan’s Fight With Arijit Singh
In 2014, during an award function back Salman Khan seemed to be hosting and when he called the name of Arijit Singh, he was all messed up as he had come directly to the award function after being busy editing a song for music composer Pritam Chakraborty. He was dressed up in casuals and chappals. When Singh walked upon the stage, Salman Khan questioned him, “So gaye the kya’” to which the singing sensation candidly yet nervously expressed “Kya karein aapne sula diya.” Salman also replied back by targeting his songs and said, ‘Songs like these can make anyone fall asleep.’ Though Arijit immediately realized that what he said might have hurt the actor, he whispered an apology to Salman Khan while receiving the award, this didn’t end there.
Later when Arijit Singh recorded a song for Salman Khan’s movie, it was later told that they had dropped the song as Salman Bhai no longer wanted the song. But the same thing happened again when he recorded a song for Sultan. During that time, Singh knew Salman Khan was still mad about the award function and so he made a public apology through a Facebook post.
It is now believed that everything between the two is sorted now as in an award show where Salman was sitting in front row, and Arijit performing on the stage, shared friendly gestures with each other. While Arijit bowed and smiled out of respect towards Salman Khan, Khan in return smiled and accepted the greetings.
