'Vashu Bhagnani' opens up on 'Welcome To New York' row

Raid is directed by Rajkumar Gupta

"Earlier, film director Chakri Toleti said in a statement", No decision has been taken on the Rahat Fateh Ali Khan song. "I am also not sure why Atif Aslam got to sing Dil Diya Gallan when for sure our very own Arijit could have done a much better job", he said.

Minister of State for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Babul Supriyo said on Wednesday that Bollywood should impose a temporary ban on working with Pakistani artistes, The Indian Express reported on Thursday. The minister made his comments at a press conference, where he was joined by producer Vashu Bhagnani, whose film Welcome to NY features a song by Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

"I am not against any Pakistani artist. Why were these songs not pulled up for using Pakistani voices, while mine has?" he was quoted as saying. The event was attended by singer turned politician Babul Supriyo and film producer Vashu Bhagnani who stated that they will take the message back to Mumbai and will ask all the filmmakers not to work with Pakistani artists because India comes first for them. "We have made an entertaining film and we don't want to hurt anyone". "But still we can not do anything as the film is releasing this Friday", Bhagnani said. Also, he had pointed out that he was unable 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". I don't understand why we are being targeted like this.


The composer confirmed that the song will be part of the film. In Cricket, we are not allowing Pakistan cricketers to play in the IPL.

In a press conference held yesterday in New Delhi regarding his demand to ban the song "Ishtehaar" from the forthcoming comedy WELCOME TO NEW YORK starring Diljit Dosanjh, Sonakshi Sinha, Karan Johar, Riteish Deshmukh, Lara Dutta and Boman Irani. "If Bollywood agrees, soldiers on the border will feel good".
