I Am Shocked That My Arjun Kapoor –Shraddha Kapoor Baarish Number Has Been Chucked: Jubin Nautiyal

There is little doubt that Jubin Nautiyal has carved a niche for himself in the music world with hits like Tere Liye (Fitoor), Baawra Mann (Jolly LLB 2), Kaabil Hoon Main (Kaabil) and Humma Humma (OK Jaanu) among others to his credit.

Jubin was to add a romantic number to his list, but fate had other plans. The singer had recorded Baarish from Half Girlfriend and also gave interviews stating how ‘excited’ he was about the track.

“I am singing Baarish from Half Girlfriend. Crooning a romantic song for a Mohit Suri film is a big achievement because he is known for his ear for music,” he had said in one of his interviews.

However, right before the release of the song, a meeting with director Mohit Suri shocked the singer.

Mohit informed Jubin that he had been replaced and the song would now be sung by Ash King.

When contacted Jubin confirmed the story and confessed that he is appalled at the development.

SpotboyE.com also spoke to composer Tanishk Bagchi about the matter and he maintained, "We had tried many singers for the song, but found Ash's voice complete for the character."

We tried to get in touch with Mohit, but he chose to not respond to our texts and calls.

Half Girlfriend features Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles and isbased on Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name.

Arjun essays the role of Madhav Jha, a Bihari boy who meets Riya Somani (Shraddha), a dreamer, at St Stephens College, Delhi. Despite polar opposite backgrounds they bond on basketball and thus begin a relationship like no other.
