“Pakistani singer Atif Aslam has been repeatedly shrugging off requests to promote his latest song “Sehmi hai dhadkan” from the forthcoming Bollywood film “Daas Dev”, says its producer Sanjeev Kumar.

“Atif said he will do it, but it hasn’t been done. I’m not sure why he isn’t taking part in the activity, but, as a producer, I see that work promised hasn’t been executed,” Kumar said in a statement.

“Sehmi hai dhadkan” was launched on February 22 as the first song from Sudhir Mishra’s film “Daas Dev”, a contemporary take on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s novel “Devdas”.

Earlier this month, politician Babul Supriyo had asked for a ban on Pakistani artistes working in the Hindi film industry. He had also objected to the inclusion of Pakistan singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s voice in the film “Welcome To New York”.

Aditi Rao Hydari will also be starring in this movie.

Kumar said: “Normally, such statements are made by fringe groups. When a minister says it, it leaves an impact on more people. But we needed Atif for this song. He has 20 million followers on social media. Imagine the kind of traction we would have got had he promoted it.”

Akshay Kumar shares a close bond with John Abraham but he does not seem to be happy with his film “Gold” and the latter’s forthcoming movie “Satyameva Jayate” releasing on the same date.

Akshay and John have together worked in “Garam Masala”, “Desi Boyz” and “Housefull 2′ but now, “Gold” and “Satyameva Jayate” is going to clash against each other on Independence Day (August 15).

Talking about the clash, John had said: “Akshay is my good friend. We get along really well and we wish best for each other… to avoid clash between the two films is T-Series and Excel Entertainment’s responsibility.”

Akshay sarcastically expressed his displeasure over the issue by taking a jibe at John’s statement.

“It is true that he is my friend… and I have learned that anyone can release their film with other actor’s film so, next time, I will also do the same (laughs).

“We can release our film together on any occasion, be it Eid, Diwali or Christmas as we all are friends” said Akshay while interacting with the media during the music launch of “Gold” along with his co-actors Mouni Roy, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh, Sunny Kaushal, Kunal Kapoor and director Reema Kagti on Friday here.

A historical sports drama, inspired by India’s first Olympic gold medal, “Gold” traces the “golden era” of Indian hockey through the journey of Tapan Das, a young assistant manager in 1936, who dreams of playing for an independent nation.
