Akash Dadlani, who was one of the most entertaining contestants inside the Bigg Boss 11 house during the initial weeks of the show, is now in the haters list of most viewers, courtesy his disrespectful behaviour towards Shilpa Shinde and others.
And in one of the recent episodes, Akash claimed that he had helped in the composition of the 2015 popular song Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan from the film Roy.
And now, Manmeet Singh of Meet Bros, who composed the song, has slammed Akash for blatantly lying on National television.
Clarifying on Akash's claim, Manmeet told a section of media: "It's absolutely rubbish yaar. He used to come and he is learning music here. So, when we made the tune to write the rap, he also wrote something but we didn't use it because he is not a professional. He is still learning. We try so many people, you know."
"We call some five singers to sing the song. When we don't like it we don't keep it so his was something we didn't like because he still doesn't have that flair. So, what he is saying is not true. He still has to learn because he is not ready at all. If you hear him on the show, you'll never understand what he is saying because it's not professional rapping. But he is a good kid. He is a keen learner, very positive and hard-working. Also, Kumar writes all the songs for us and no one else," SpotboyE reported.
This is not the first time that Akash has lied about his connection with the Bollywood industry people. Earlier, he had faked his identity by claiming that he is related to music composer and singer Vishal Dadlani, taking advantage of the surname that he shares with Vishal.
Akash said he is Vishal's "dead brother's son" and is very close to the acclaimed singer.
As soon as the news fell on Vishal's ears, he issued an official statement on Twitter saying that the Bigg Boss 11 contestant is not related to him.
"Some dude on Bigg Boss claims to be related to me. I checked and he is, but quite a distance. I don't know him, apart from his having texted me asking for work, a few times. With respect, I won't work with someone just because they happen to have the same surname as I do. Even if he was my dead brothers' son as is claimed, he'd have to work his way up and earn his place," the musician said.
"Also, thankfully, I don't have a brother, never have. This is to clarify that I have never met this gent and that I do not even know him. I wish him well, as I would any other musician. But that's about it," he added.
