Well known Indian musician and singer Rabbi Shergill’s name was dropped from the Pakistan’s most popular music event due to an endless delay in the issuance of his visa, organizers have said.
The Coke studio event has gained immense popularity in Pakistan and this year the organizers had invited some Indian musicians to perform.
Rabbi topped the high-profile list with his popular rendition of Bullah Ki Jaana in 2005.
An official statement from the organizers said that his visa had been delayed and he could not made it to the studio to record, thus not being able to feature in this season.
“We invited the talented Rabbi Shergill to the Coke Studio platform but his visa got delayed,” said Rohail Hayatt, the producer of Coke Studio.
“Although he managed to make it at the very last minute, we were not able to do justice to his music and the platform, given the timelines. It’s just not the way we would like to welcome any outside talent to CS. So, I’ve decided to not use the music.”
However, the Indian version of the Coke studio event will be aired on MTV next month.
