Who stole Zayedís song?
It was a promise made to the promising young actor from the start. But then nothing in Bollywood sells like success. Zayed Khan was supposed to sing and dance to a solo number in Tony DíSouzaís Blue. He waited patiently. It was meant to be the last number to be shot, post-dubbing because of the delay in recording the song.
But now that the number Fiqrana has found a replacement singer in Vijay Prakash instead of Farhan Akhar, Zayed shooting in Delhi for Sharafat Gayi Tel Lene is shocked to be informed that itís no longer his song. That in fact the number to be filmed from September 15 till September 19 at the Mukesh Mills will now be filmed on the entire cast Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta and Katrina Kaif and of course Zayed.
Hurt and incensed, Zayed is no longer interested in participating in what was meant to be his song.
Speaking guardedly from Delhi Zayed said, ďIím learning my lessons the hard way. In this industry itís always the big fish eating up the little fish (an apt description considering our film Blue is an underwater sea adventure). Fine. Hopefully one day Iíll get there. But when I do I can assure I wonít behave the same way. But no more being taken for granted. I canít afford it.Ē
Beyond this Zayed refuses to comment on how a song sung in one voice will now be shot on the entire cast. As for not participating in the number he says, ďI was thinking of not participating in the shooting. If I am not considered important enough no point in hanging around. But then I decided to be professional about this. Iím flying from Delhi to Mumbai for the song.Ē
Zayed however absolves the Blue director of all blame. Too new to protest or to stand up for an actor who is not doing well enough commercially to be seen to warrant a whole song to himself, Tony DíSouza says, ďYes weíre shooting a song with the entire cast next week. Iíd really like Zayed to be part of it. Because heís a very important and pivotal part of Blue. This film will take him to another level.Ē
