A Legend Insulted: Shahid Rafi Upset With KJo And ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ For Insulting Mohd. Rafi

Published on 31 October, 2016 at 8:55 pm By

Bollywood is creating history with insulting its own legends. From ‘Om Shanti Om’ making fun of Manoj Kumar, to the recently released ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ making snide comments about Rafi’s singing, Bollywood continues to dishonor its own. In the movie, Anushka’s character says to Ranbir,

Mohd. Rafi gaate nahi rote the.

Anyone who has ever heard, nay listened to, Rafi’s singing will vehemently disagree with this statement.

 

It is no surprise then that Rafi’s son, Shahid Rafi, has taken umbrage at this dialogue. He says,



This dialogue doesn’t take the movie forward or backwards and if that is the case, what was the need to include this dialogue? And while writing this dialogue, didn’t they realise who they were talking about? Mohammed Rafi is a versatile legendary singer and I am not saying this just because he is my father. Even after 36 years of his passing away, my father’s fan following is far more than many other singers of our industry. My father was an institution. He was a very down-to-earth person. He was like a saint. People still worship him. Nobody in the industry says anything bad about my father. This dialogue is an insult. It is stupid. The man who wrote this dialogue is stupid. My father sang for Shammi Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar, Joy Mukherjee, Biswajeet Singh. From love songs to qawwali, he has sung it all. It is ridiculous to say whatever has been said in the film.

 

Is nothing sacred anymore? Is it okay to diss anything and anyone just to get a few laughs? More and more, we’re looking like a truly thankless, ungracious lot. What a pity!
