Indian Idol Junior: Was Shahrukh Khan the reason for Vishal-Shekhar’s absence?

Well, it certainly seems so! The music composer duo missed the Saturday episode of their reality show ‘coz of SRK

When Shahrukh Khan decided to rope in Indian rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh for the special lungi song, Chennai Express music composers Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani weren’t too happy. And they made their displeasure quite obvious by skipping the Indian Idol Junior episode which was graced by SRK, director Rohit Shetty and Deepika Padukone. The three were present on the show to promote their latest offering Chennai Express but what caught everyone’s attention was absence of Vishal-Shekhar. While we heard that the two were annoyed with SRK and Rohit for bringing Honey Singh on board and so decided to give this episode a miss.

And even as Vishal-Shekhar said that prior commitments forced them to skip the episode, some felt it was ironical that the duo decided to skip an episode which had the contestants singing tracks from their upcoming film. However post a report by a leading tabloid both the concerned parties have gone on a denial mode. Shekhar clarified on the micro blogging site, ”Reading a lot of rubbish in the press about us and srk. We couldn’t be on the show because of prior commitment. Srk is family, always!” Even King Khan went ahead and rubbished these rumours on twitter posting,” ur graciousness and our friendship will always be questioned by small minds. set them aside and be the rockstar u are. lov u.”

All’s well that ends well. Just when we thought that Honey Singh had extracted the sweetness out of SRK-Vishal-Shekhar’s friendship, it’s really sweet to see the friends come out in support of each other.
