Some days back, popular Bollywood director Karan Johar poking fun for legendary voice of the era Late Mohd. Rafi in his film with a lead character in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Earlier in the day, Rafi’s son Shahid Rafi condemn the director for this. Now, the famous voice of many superstars of Bollywood, Sonu Nigam slammed back with the same views like Shahid’s stance in an interview here he looks visibly upset and furious over the dig took at Rafi in ADHM.
In the Karan Johar directed romantic drama there is a scene where Anushka Sharma‘s character says “Mohammed Rafi gaate nahi, rote the (Mohammed Rafi used to cry, not sing).” While talking to an entertainment portal, when Sonu was asked about his take on the scene, his reply made it clear that he too found the scene to be insulting. “If you can listen to the same joke about your parents then we are wrong. If your blood boils that how can someone say something like this about my parents, then hum sahi hain beta.”
Sonu further urged that Rafi has passed away and we should be even more respectful towards him. He further said that the Likhe Jo Khat Tujhe singer is equal a saint to the fraternity. “When something bad will be said about your father then obviously you’d get hurt,” he added.
Earlier in the day, Rafi’s son Shahid told a news portal “This is so insulting. I am ashamed of Karan Johar. I didn’t expect this from him at all. My dad has sung songs for Karan’s father (Yash Johar) and this is what he has done now. I haven’t seen the film yet. Whoever has written this dialogue is an idiot. He doesn’t know who Rafi Saab was. He was the most versatile singer. How can he write such crap about a legendary singer?”
Shahid is expecting an apology from Karan. He said: “The damage has been done. So many people have watched the film. I don’t think he is even going to edit that part. All I expect from Karan is an apology letter from him.”
