There has been an ongoing war between Himesh Reshammiya and Asha Bhosle since the past couple of weeks. Himesh had once made a statement that even R.D.Burman was a nasal singer which upset Asha big time. However, recently, the two met up and cleared their differences. Himesh had earlier apologised to Asha Bhosle through SMS but this time, he personally met her to do so. The two had a long chat and Asha forgave him. She in fact, even gave an offer to Himesh to sing with her for her album, Asha and Friends-2 and Himesh agreed to do it. The song was also finalised and was called 'Sorry Didi'.
Things however had to stop when T-Series learnt about this development. Himesh is actually bound by an exclusive contract by T-Series which stops him from singing commercially for any other music label. T-Series sent a fax to Mauj, which is producing this album, to not sign Himesh for the song.
T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar says that Himesh had asked him about this but Bhushan had to ask him to not sing for outside label. Himesh respects both Ashaji and T-Series; therefore, things had to be stopped. He explained his inability to Asha Bhosle and she understood.
