Arif Lohar and other Pakistani singers denied visa to attend Cocktail music launch

Mumbai: Saif Ali Khan’s flick Cocktail, in which he plays the main leads opposite two hottest and sexiest babes – Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty, is on fuller buzz in the media. And the promos on television along with the songs have been creating the big ripples among the masses. The film seems potentially brilliant apparently and it shows that it can make its mark at the box office. The film is undoubtedly colorful and can be a treat for the youngsters in particular. The storyline is catchy and can grab the audiences’ attention. Saif has also produced the film in association with Dinesh Vijan.

As it has been the tradition to fetch in Pakistani singers to croon in Hindi movies for last many years, Cocktail too carries Pakistani talented vocalists who have rendered the songs in the music album of the movie. Pakistani singers have really proved their mettle in Indian music industry and they have now bigger fans in India as well.

The latest reports say that a group of Pakistani singers, who have shown their vocals in Cocktail’s music album, have been denied the visa by the Indian High Commission. Thus they now cannot come to Mumbai for the music launch. The sources say that they had to come to Mumbai to attend the music launch of the album, which was arranged by the producers Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijain. The event is to take place after few days.

Four Pakistani singers were denied India visa and among these four, the most prominent name is Arif Lohar, who is internationally famed Punjabi folk singer of Pakistan and is the son of the world famed late Punajbi folk vocalist late Alam Lohar. Lohar’s widely famous song ‘Jugni’ has been taken into Cocktail’s album.

Saif and Dinesh both show their unhappiness over the matter and they thought that it was really unfair that the Indian Embassy did not provide them visa to travel to India. Thus now both the producers have decided to stay away from the music launch since they wanted to show Pakistani singers to Indian audiences so that they could get their due.
