Badshah Controversy: But not just Amar, another person has claimed himself to be neglected in the ‘Kaala Chashma’ chapter. He wrote the lyrics of the song. Name Amrik Singh Shera. Home Punjab.
The original singer of ‘Kala Chashma’ lashed out at Badshah
The world is swaying to the rhythm of ‘Kala Chashma’. From Demi Lovato to African dance troupes – no one is left out. After raw almonds, this song also went viral. Biye Bari to Birthday… This song based on Katrina and Siddharth is now the talk of the town. However, the singer of the song Amar Arshi’s explosive complaint, the king is taking all the credit for the success of the song. First released in 1991, this song was way ahead of its time. Badsha recreated that song in 2016. Although the song is sung by Amar, Badsha’s rap and Neha Kakkar’s vocals are added to it. But Amar’s complaint is that in no interview did Badsha even mention his name, let alone credit him.
In an interview, he said, “I took all the credit myself. What he was supposed to share with me. When the song was first released, I got calls from many people in the industry. But slowly I saw that success was slipping away from me. The king became the sole sharer of that success.” He also said that he did not know what the ‘royalty’ of the song was. So when the remix came out he didn’t benefit much financially. Incidents of not giving due credit to singers have, however, happened before with Badshah. Remember the song ‘Genda Phool’ released in 2020? Badsha did the remake of that song written by Ratan Kahar. Although his name was not mentioned anywhere at first. As soon as the matter came to the attention of the netizens, there was a storm of protest. After that, the king tried to settle the matter by calling Ratan Kahar. This time almost the same complaint of this singer.
But not only Amar, another person has claimed himself as neglected in the ‘Kala Chashma’ chapter. He wrote the lyrics of the song. Name Amrik Singh Shera. Home Punjab. At present, he is sitting on the post of Chief Constable of Punjab Police. No one knows him. No one knows about him. But Kishore Amrik wrote the lyrics of this song at the age of 15 in the 90s. He was studying in ninth grade then. He requested many people with folded hands to listen to his words. No one kept talking, as they often do. But some people keep it. Amar Arshi left. He sang this song. Several years have passed since then. Year 2016. The song was used in the movie ‘Baar Baar Dekho’. But where is the poison? Nowhere is his due respect. The middle-aged man is also laughing. In his words, “No one from the film industry called me during the music launch. No one even called the screening of the film.” On the one hand, when the world is mad with black glasses fever, then the two main pillars of the song are disappointed! A large section of netizens expressed their anger on the king.
