John Abraham starrer ‘I Me Aur Main’ was all set to include a party number featuring popular rapper Honey Singh. However, it has emerged that he was dropped from the film and song due to the controversies he has recently been involved in.
A source revealed to Hindustan Times, “It was supposed to be a party number, but the producers decided to scrap it at the last minute because of the controversies Honey has been embroiled in”.
It seems Singh was ousted from the project following the controversial lyrics to one of this songs. The source continued, “This film is John۪s ode to women. It deals with all the women in his life. As the protagonist, through the movie, he understands the importance of respecting all of them. So naturally, a song with crass lyrics about women would just ruin the perception of the film”.
Director Kapil Sharma confirmed the news and also said that a club song was wanted but they decided not to work with Singh.
