MUMBAI: We don’t have too many stars like Atif Aslam and Arijit Singh in today’s vacillating social media age — the sort of stars with fan-bases that are not restricted by gender or age, who give out hit after hit, whose popularity goes beyond Indo-Pak cross-border politics to the extent that Bollywood keeps reaching out to them regardless of the risk of bans and controversy.
However, the Indian government has banned Pakistani artists to work in Bollywood after the Pulwana attack that took place in Indian occupied Kashmir.
Recently, the sensational Bollywood music composer Amaal Mallik announced that he will be producing a song for an upcoming movie titled ‘De De Pyaar De’ and unveiled that if Atif Aslam won’t record the song then Arijit Singh will.
His tweet started a debate on social media on who’s the better singer between Atif Aslam and Arijit Singh.
Amaal responded by requesting to not draw comparisons between the two, “Everyone has their own talent, please don’t compare and bring negativity.”
Sabki Apni Talent Hai please don’t compare and bring negativity.— Amaal Mallik (@AmaalMallik) March 28, 2019
Another fan commented, “Arijit Singh is better than Atif.”
Achha singer hai but can’t compare any one to Atif, he is a senior and has been around for years.— Amaal Mallik (@AmaalMallik) March 23, 2019
On which, Malik replied, “Arijit is Arijit, Atif is Atif, they have their own styles and strengths.”
Arijit Singh is better than Atif…
