Nice Gesture By T Series As Tensions Subside!
He has become a familiar voice as a playback singer in numerous Bollywood movies. Recently, following Pulwana attacks, T-series took off his latest track that had been released a few weeks before the attack.
The track was Baarishein which had been release a day before Valentine’s day. he wasn’t the only artist who got cut off, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s songs were take off as well. After tensions subsided the songs were restored. However this caused an uproar amongst Pakistani fans, resulting in un-subscribing from the label’s YouTube channel.
All the while the musician did not comment on the action. Recently in an interview with the Weekly Blitz he was asked his view on this . To this he responded :
“It happens. I don’t know. I think I’m really loved over there (India) by fans. Border-ban has appeared often but I personally don’ know the reason for this – why I was taken off and was back on YouTube. The fan following in Pakistan and India is huge, which is perhaps gauged by the numbers. I feel it is the response of the fans.”
The good news is that the songs are back and hopefully there to stay!
Atif’s “Baarishein” teaser is out and it is the ultimate Valentine’s Day song!
