Pakistani singer Taher Shah angry over Varun Dhawan’s 'Angel' act
Varun Dhawan has reportedly upset Pakistani singer and YouTube sensation Taher Shah after he emulated the latter from his ‘Angel’ song video. The actor mimicked Taher, the singer-composer of ‘Angel’ music video for an episode of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ where he promoted his upcoming film ‘Dishoom’.
The video of Varun’s act went viral and it has upset Taher as the ‘Main Tera Hero’ actor has imitated and made fun of him, a report in a popular publication stated.
Last year, Raveer Singh also made a Dubsmash video of him lip-syncing to Taher’s 2013 song ‘Eye to Eye’. He even went to the extent of dressing up like the singer in the video in a white suit and long curly locks.
Meanwhile, the channel on which the comedy show is aired, had approached Taher for the rights of the song to use on the show, but the singer bluntly turned them down. His manager also gave an earful to the representative of the channel, the report added.
The channel seems to be in a fix now as the episode has already been shot and ready to telecast. The report quoted a source close to the show as saying, “They are trying their best to convince Taher that he has not been mocked or made fun of, but if he remains adamant, they will have to go ahead without the song. It will be difficult as there is no other such slow song to which Varun can be shown lip-syncing. Also, it was Varun's idea to do the jig.”
Both ‘Eye to Eye’ and ‘Angel’ have also been trolled on the Internet through memes and reconstructed videos.
