Vishal Dadlani nominated for Akon's song!
The music composer was in for a shock as his name was wrongly nominated in the Best Playback Singer category at two award events
Shah Rukh Khan almost burnt a hole in his pocket in the process of bringing down international R&B sensation Akon to sing for RA.One. But with the arrival of the awards season, guess whose benefiting the most from it?
It seems weird that the film's music composer Vishal Dalani has been nominated in the Best Playback Singer (Male) category for Chammak Challo. And that too, at two different upcoming award events.
A surprised Dadlani tweeted, "I have been nominated in the best playback singer category for Chammak Challo...wonder why?"
Interestingly, though composers Vishal and Shekhar delivered one of 2011's biggest hits through the SRK-Kareena number, the song was hard sold as Akon's first Bollywood number.
Says a source, "The only thing that really stands out in the song apart from Kareena Kapoor's latka and jhatkas is Akon's nasal voice.
He may not have been part of the video, but visuals of the singer recording the number with the composers and SRK were all over the place. So it's strange that the awards' jury can make such a ridiculous mistake."
However, Dadlani seems to be taking this in his stride. He kept away from any controversy saying, "No disrespect to the awards. They are run by friends and colleagues. It's an honest mistake. I was just setting the record straight."
