The internet is a ruthless place where anyone and everyone can be subjected to trolling. This time, it is the director Karan Johar who is being trolled. Johar’s latest project, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani, stars Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles. The teaser for the film was released a few days ago, and now a teaser for the song “Tum Kya Mile” was released yesterday.
Johar posted the teaser video on Instagram and announced the release date of the song. The song was sung by Arijit Singh, but the internet is angry because they believe Johar purposely sidelined Shreya Ghoshal, who also lent her voice to the song.
Inspired by the Bollywood classics, penned with love & composed by sweet melody – a few hours to go & your heart will be warmed by #TumKyaMile!

The text on the video only said, “The Dream Team — Karan Johar, Pritam, Amitabh Bhattacharya, Arijit Singh.” Johar’s caption on Instagram read, “This is a special one. Working with my favourite people again and bringing some love this season.”
Shreya Ghoshal’s fans were not happy with this and lashed out at the Dharma Productions team for not mentioning their favorite singer’s name. One user wrote, “You should be ashamed of yourself. Shreya Ghoshal should ban you. Keep dragging her down, she will shine brighter! This song, if it is going to break any milestones, it will be because Shreya has sung it. Her one line is enough to make her a part of the Dharma Productions musical dream team!”
Another user wrote, “It is not fair, Karan Johar. You have time to mention Arijit Singh, but what about legends like Shreya Ghoshal? She is the main reason behind the success of #GharMorePardesiya. How can you even forget her? Please give some respect to female singers as well.”
A third user commented, “The dream team is for sure, but what is Karan Johar’s name doing in it? Did he sing the song? And why is Shreya Ghoshal’s name not mentioned in it? This is enough reason to boycott Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.”
