NEW DELHI - Music maestro Asha Bhosle and Voice of Pakistan Atif Aslam had a heated argument on the set of the reality show ‘Sur Kshetra’ prompting the veteran singer to walk off stage.
The show, produced by Hit Producer Boney Kapoor is being filmed in neighbouring Dubai.
‘Sur Kshetra’ encompasses two teams from India and Pakistan led by Himesh Reshammiya and Atif Aslam respectively. The judges include Asha Bhosle, Abida Parveen and Runa Laila.
When Bhosle articulated her judgements regarding a contestant from Aslam’s team he was quick to oppose her opinions, igniting a war of words between the two symbolic personalities.
According to Indian sources, the legendary singer then decided to discontinue the show and returned back to Mumbai.
However, persistent efforts by Kapoor to make peace between the two patriotic stars eventually led to her return and the successful continuation of the show.
