The truth in the Salman Khan-Arijit Singh controversy is far from out, but it looks like singer Mika Singh has already pronounced his verdict on the controversy. One that speaks volume of the unity, rather the lack of it amongst playback singers. 

Whilst Mika, who has a great rapport with Salman, hasn't really picked any side, he did say that Arijit might have unitentionally made a mistake.

"I have decided to discuss this when I meet Arijit. However, I feel Arijit is quite young and maybe, he has done a mistake unintentionally. Several times, we express ourselves at award functions but later we realise our mistakes," Mika told a noted protal.

Adding further Mika said, "I think it is a very small thing. My best wishes to Arijit. He should concentrate on his work. He is a very brilliant and a talented singer in Bollywood."

It must be recalled that recently Arijit courted controversy by posting a public apology to Salman, who allegedly took offence to Singh's comments at an awards do. Salman was hosting an award show where a very tired and worn-out looking Arijit came up on stage to receive an award. When the Sultan jokingly told Arijit that whether he's just turned up from his sleep, Arijit said that he was put to sleep as they (Salman and Riteish) were boring him.

Few weeks later, Arijit Singh posted a public apology to Salman, requesting him not to delete his song from Sultan. However, this apology didn't evoke any response from the actor, leading to specualtion that Salman must have not catered to Arijit's request. Singh had later deleted the Facebook post.

Speculation was rife that song in question could be 'Jag Ghoomeya', which has been credited to Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. However, neither the producers, nor the music directors Vishal-Shekhar have acknowledged that Arijit ever had a song in the film. 

One Singh who does have song in Sultan is Mika. The singer told that he has a fast romantic number titled 440 Volt. 

Well, we wonder whether Arijit Singh would get a 440 Volt shock after reading what Mika had to say on his controversy.
