Singer Kunal Ganjawala is completely against the idea of cultural exchange between India and Pakistan. As he finds there is no dearth of Indian talent, Kunal completely criticizes the import of Pakistani singers to Bollywood.
In an interaction with Times of India, Kunal laments singers from Pakistan coming to India to make a career. On this regards, the singer says, “We need someone like an Arijit to come and tell you that Pakistani singers are not doing something great. Take for instance Atif – what did he have except arrogance?” Ouch!
Atif Aslam has given great many hits in Bollywood, but Kunal finds Rahat Fateh Ali Khan very talented. And then he again complains saying, “We don’t really need to go across the border and get mediocre talent. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is very talented but we will find a lot of people in India as well who can sing on that high a note. However, Nusrat (Fateh Ali Khan) sahab was unique. I am not trying to demean anybody here.”
Well, both Kunal and Atif have been popular singers in the industry, and this sudden outburst coming out of Kunal leaves us perplexed.
