Aashiqui 2 Singer Ankit Tiwari Disgrace To Music

Singer Ankit Tiwari, who gained stardom with his hit song Sunn Raha Hai Na Tu… in the super hit movie AASHIQUI 2 has disgraced music by allegedly being involved in a rape case.

Though Anikt has discarded the news as a plot to tarnish his image the Versova police has locked him in police custody till May 26 after his girlfriend filled an FIR against him on charges of rape.

According to Police inspector Machidra Vadkhe the victim Nidhi Khanna(28), alleged that Anikt has been physically exploiting her since July 2013 on the pretext of marring her. However when he declined to marry her she lodged a complaint in writing to ACP and the concerned DCP.

Ankit defending himself admits that though he had been in an affair with her since last year but when he and his family came to know that Niddhi is a divorcee with one minor daughter, he ended the relation. 

‘Parikrama’ Band Makes Their Debut In Bollywood

The famous rock and roll band from Delhi, ‘Parikrama’ who had been evading from giving music in Bollywood has eventually scored music for Sandeep A Varma’s hard hitting movie MANJUNATH. The movie is inspired from life of the honest officer Shanmugham Manjunath who was killed in Lakhimpur Kheri in Bihar in 2005 and compels viewers to ponder on the height of corruption prevlant in India.

Parikrama band is in existence since 1991 and is hugely popular but the band has always kept distance from Bollywood as it believes in music that is soul stirring and pleasing and away from the ‘Munni’ and ‘Sheila’ culture of Bollywood.

So what made the band opt for MANJUNATH? Subir Malik, a member of the band said, “When Sandeep Varma insisted us to give the music we had declined as usual but he kept the script in our office and asked us to read the script and if impressed change mind.” He added, “When read the story  Shanmugan, an IIM graduate being killed for standing against corruption we were stirred to give the music.”

MANJUNATH has been released on May 9, 2014 and is winning critical acclaim both for its strong message and superlative music.
