A group of Pakistani singers who have lent their voices for Saif Ali Khan's Cocktail, were denied visa in India. Terming it unfair, producers Saif Ali Khana and Dinesh Vijan have decided to do away with the music launch.

The event was scheduled for this month.

"Among the four singers, Arif Lohar is one of the biggest names in Punjabi folk music and Javed Bashir is the lead singer of the Pakistani band Mekaal Hasan," reports the tabloid.

Sources close to producer Dinesh Vijan told the tabloid, “The producer thought it is very unfair to these Pakistani singers, if they weren’t given their due in front of the Indian media. So they decided to entirely do away with the music launch.”

The music of Cocktail, composed by Pritam, is making waves all over India. Songs like Tumhi Ho Bandhu, Daaru Desi, Yaariyan, and Second Hand Jawaani is indeed an interesting cocktail of melody, lyrics and romance.
