Karan Johar’s <em>Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, </em>which releases during Diwali, has been threatened with a ‘ban’ in Maharashtra by the Mns. And Karan Johar is not amused.

Arijit Singh replaced by Atif Aslam in A Flying Jatt

Lightning, they say, never strikes the same place again. But Arijit Singh's career has been struck by lightning twice, originating from the same place. Pakistan. While his song 'Jag Ghoomiya' in Sultan was re-rendered by Ustad Rahat Ali Khan, his new track for the film A Flying Jatt has now been dubbed in the voice of Atif Aslam. While the people close to the development including composers Sachin-Jigar maintain the news is a hoax, sources close to Arijit Singh reveal that Bollywood's finest singer today has indeed been dubbed and snubbed again. A very talented filmmaker-musician wonders what was the need to replace Arijit. "He has such an amazing voice! And he exercises such great control over the seven musical notes. Unusual for today's singer to be so deeply trained in Hindustani classical music. I can understand a singer as great as Rahat Fateh Ali Khan being brought in place of Arijit.
