Mika removes 'Katrina' from song
The singer dropped the actress' name to avoid displeasing her ex-beau Salman Khan
Controversy specialist Mika Singh is at it again. The crooner who has penned and rendered the track Saari Duniya Mere Ispe, Neta Abhineta Mere Ispe for the forthcoming flick Loot has done a rethink. Reason? He did not want to rub Salman Khan the wrong way as he considers him his buddy.
Apparently the track in the comic caper mentions quite a few well-known people of the country including Bollywood folks. One of the names mentioned was that of Katrina Kaif. The line went Sun Meri Katrina Mera London Jana China.
Says a source, "Mika has been excited about the track. He thinks it will be as well received as his Ae Ganpat and the recent Dhinka Chikha numbers. But after recording it, he felt he needed to remove Katrina's name. He considers himself to be a good pal of Salman, and decided to change the name from Katrina to Jacklina as it was a similar rhyming name."
Adds the source, "Salman and Mika share a good relationship and all their songs together have been popular. Saari Duniya Mere Ispe is a fun Bollywood masala song and as Mika respects Salman, he decided to give it a pass and changed the name for the sake of his friendship with the star." Incidentally, Mika has also acted in Loot, which stars Suniel Shetty and Govinda.
