“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.”

Have to change notion of masculinity: Ranbir Kapoor
Ranbir Kapoor talked about state of Football in India.

Actor Ranbir Kapoor says that football has been a sleeping sport in India but it is now gaining importance due to government support.

“I have always enjoyed playing soccer (football) as a child. It is a sleeping sport in our country, but now with government’s support and leagues like Indian Super League, it is slowly gaining prominence. It is good if a country has different sports as it gives a platform to more talent,” Ranbir said in a statement.
