Bollywood music director Vishal Dadlani is very active on social media. They express their views on every issue without hesitation. They are considered staunch opponents of the current government. Vishal Dadlani has been targeted by netizens for one of his statements. In fact, the new episode of Indian Idol saw all the singers singing patriotic songs. At this time, a singer sang Lata Mangeshkar’s all time hit song ‘A Mere Watan Ke Logon’. After listening to this song, Vishal Dadlani praised him. But, in the meantime, he misinformed about the song. He said that this song was sung by Lata Mangeshkar at the time of independence. After hearing this song, Prime Minister Nehru became emotional. Because of this information, they are now being trolled on social media.
Netizens are trolling Vishal Dadlani for his statement. Because, this song was not sung at the time of independence but in 1962 by Lata Mangeshkar. Because of this misinformation, they have come under fire. Former Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj’s husband Swaraj Kaushal has also slapped Vishal Dadlani. He has written, ‘This is music director Vishal Dadlani. He knows very little about history, music and the Bharat Ratna and the Dadasaheb Phalke Award. ‘ (Read – Varun Dhawan-Natasha Dalal Wedding: Varun Dhawan-Natasha Dalal’s ‘Shubhamangal Sawdhan’, See Pics)
Swaraj Kaushal’s Tweet –
This borders on what I heard somebody say
‘Sir, suna hai Goswami Tulsi Dass aur Gandhi ji bade gahre mitter the’.
(Sir, I learn Goswami Tulsi Dass and Gandhi ji were great friends.).

Idiot @VishalDadlani is claiming that the song ‘Ae Mere Vatan Ke Logon’ was sung by Lata ji in 1947 for Nehru.
This song was first performed in 1963 in memory of Indian Soldiers who died in 1962 war against China.

Vishal Dadlani tweeted –
I see a few right-wingers “offended” by my messing up the date of “Ae Mere Watan Ke Logon” being sung to Pt. Nehru. I apologise for my error.

However, knowing this mistake, Vishal Dadlani himself has apologized. Vishal Dadlani is a staunch opponent of the BJP. He is also a supporter of the Aam Aadmi Party. Netizens are currently trolling them on social media.
