Popular Hindi Songs Singer Armaan Malik was replaced more than 12 times
“Our industry got destroyed. There is a reason why Sonu pulled out an earlier tweet of mine. I was not happy as an artist back then. Today, if I tell you that I am just starting out, without Bollywood’s support, I wouldn’t be an Armaan Malik.”
“In his video, Sonu also mentioned that singers were being replaced. Now, I must reveil that I got replaced in more than 12 songs in the last year. I said that I don’t want to do recreations, I want to do original songs. And saw myself not being chosen for those songs and the recreated songs were happening, and I wasn’t getting a part. I told to myself that maybe this is the trend right now.”

“After Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, I made a group with some of the singers, with whom I haven’t been in touch with. We all have been so busy on shows that we hadn’t bonded. It’s an important time to bond with people of your own industry. I want people to cross promote each other and help each other. This has to be a joint effort.”
