Wartime for Alisha, Vishal

If it’s a good fight, it’s most likely ‘made in India’. The ‘90s pop icon behind that cult song, Alisha Chinai is back on the scene, this time as a fighter girl instead of a ‘lover girl’. Music composer Vishal Dadlani of the Vishal-Shekhar duo on Tuesday tweeted that Chinai, 46, is a “terrible singer”, after she apparently asked them to “f*** off” because they didn’t meet her demands for a new song they wanted her on board for.
“She’s a terrible singer with a lovely voice (ALWAYS electronically corrected). And now, she’s completely mad, apparently. Poor thing. 3 days to record, 3 days to fix Alisha’s off-key vocals. Great voice, terrible singer,” tweeted Vishal Dadlani.
When we called him, he explained, “She’s so much senior to us, it’d be disrespectful to respond to her rant with anger. But, she’s added a whole fictional spin to the course of events. We asked her to sing, she sent a list of demands, and we declined. She seems completely delusional and quite possibly in need of medical help. I feel nothing but the deepest pity for her. God bless her with peace.”
Alisha, on her part, said she was only asking for what she deserved: “(Their behaviour is) seriously funny, because they called me, I never went asking them for a song! Besides, if they are so good, why do they need to lift foreign grooves from Sean Paul (Golmaal) and Shakira (Sheila)? I just told them I’m not interested or inspired to sing for Bollywood... so please drop the high-handed attitude, and tell your producers to pay me my fair price or simply f*** off!”
