Vishal Dadlani, a music director, producer, and one of the judges on the singing reality show, Indian idol is getting slammed on social medial. Want to know the reason? Well, in one of the recent episode of Indian idol, Vishal Dadlani wrongly linked Lata Mangeshkar’s legendary song Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon to Nehru.
The song ‘Ae mere watan ke logo’ commemorates Indian soldiers who died during the Sino-Indian War in 1962.
But here AAP supporter @VishalDadlani says the song was sung by Lata ji for Nehru ji in 1947.
Hello @SonyTV how do you allow this AAPiya 🤣

Reacting to a contestant’s performance of Lata Mangeshkar’s Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon song in a Republic Day special of the Indian Idol show on Sunday, Dadlani had said, “Lata Ji had sung this song for our country’s first prime minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru 73-74 years ago.”
However, after realizing the fact that he had messed up his general knowledge and history lessons in school, he went on to apologize while pointing out that he is being targeted for making such a factual error and asked Hindutva supporters why they had chosen to remain shun on the revelation that Arnab Goswami had celebrated the death of 40-plus CRPF soldiers in the Pulwama terror attack on 14 February.
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.

Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon is written by Kavi Pradeep, sang by Lata Mangeshkar in 1963 in memory of those Indian soldiers, who were killed in the Indo-China war of 1962.
