Earlier this month it was revealed that Arijit Singh would be seen instead of Yo Yo Honey Singh in the show ‘India’s Raw Star’. Now, reports suggest that Singh has walked out of the show.
Spotboye reports that there were differences between the singer and the creators. A source said, “The differences are irrevocable. Bahut tamasha hua hai. Arijit is out for now, and as we speak, Star Plus has gone into a tizzy”.
Shraddha Kapoor was asked to be a part of the show, as the story goes. Singh, however, has been adamant that he didn’t want anyone involved who already was connected to the industry music-wise at all. It’s thought that he wanted to be responsible for launching some fresh faces via the show. Makers were a little shocked at this demand but had no choice but to agree.��The source added, “It’s a mystery. Arijit had an opinion on almost everything that was being planned for the show and it would be difficult to pinpoint the flashpoint that brought about his exit”.
On whether the channel – Star Plus – or the makers will try to reconcile with Singh, the source responded, “Miracles do happen, but one such is quickly required if Arijit was to return”.
Himesh Reshammiya stepped in for the last season of the show when Yo Yo Honey Singh was advised bed rest.
