Reports also suggest that earlier also a case was filed against him for abusing a woman. Abhijeet had also targeted Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. He told India Today, “I made superstars with my voice. Till the time I sang for Shah Rukh Khan, he was a rock star. When I stopped singing for him – and I stopped singing for him – he came down to Lungi Dance.” To Salman, he said that “Why does Salman Khan only get Pakistani singers to sing songs in his films? Are Indian singers not good enough to sing in his movie? Pakistani artists need to be restricted from working in the Indian film industry. On one side these Pakistanis are killing our soldiers and on the other side Salman is hell bent on giving opportunities to Pakistani talent only.”
