This dialogue from ADHM ‘Mohammad Rafi gaate kam rote zyada they’ had created a way big controversy. Fans of Rafi Saab, including Sonu Nigam and Bappi Lahiri slammed the makers for making fun of the legendary singer. Sonu Nigam even asked that how would one feel if similar thing is being said about their own father.
When a leading entertainment portal approached Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani to comment on the same, they first hesitated saying why they were being asked the question, they have nothing to do with it but soon Shekhar said
There is no bigger fan of Mohammad Rafi than Karan Johar himself
Also, Vishal added
People need to calm down and shouldn’t react to any and everything as Mohammad Rafi is way bigger than any small discussion and his legacy is way bigger.
Vishal-Shekhar made a correct point here. Mohammad Rafi is too big to have his image maligned by a mere dialogue in some film.
On work front, this year was literally terrific and lucky for Vishal-Shekhar. Including Jabra Fan, Sultan’s soundtrack, soundtrack of Banjo and now Befikre, all their work has been highly appreciated.
