Salman Khan has asked the makers of ‘Welcome To New York’ to not use any of Arijit’s songs.
The makers wanted to keep a song in Arijit’s voice in the film that also has a cameo by Salman.
Arijit recorded the rough version, but it was rejected by the actor.
Sources said, “Arijit has sung the rough scratch of the track which was to be used in the film. However, Salman was quite miffed and he told the makers, ‘Anyone in the fraternity could croon the track but Arijit’.”
The root of Salman Khan’s problem with Arijit dates back to 2014 when Arijit was called on to the stage for felicitation by him during an award show.
On reaching the stage, Arijit said, “you put us to sleep”.
Salman replied on their comment and told, “Aur isme humara koi dosh nahi hai, agar aise gaane bajte raheng. and hummed the tune of Arijit’s song ‘Tum Hi Ho’.”
Something similar happened with 2016 film ‘Sultan’ as well.
Salman once again Arijit’s song removed from the film.
Arijit wrote on Facebook, “Please do not remove the song that I sang for you in ‘Sultan’. I want to retire with at least one song of you keeping in my library. Please do not take away this feeling.”
And then he deleted the post after a while.
Now, with this new song in Welcome To New York, the tussle between the two has been revived.

The film will hit the screens on February 23, 2018.–CINEWS
