Showbiz promoter and former manager of Bollywood and Qawwali star Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Salman Ahmed has pledged to make public the Indian artists and Bollywood stars’ secretly-filmed videos over their ‘rude’ and ‘impolite’ attitude.

In a newly-leaked video, Salman Ahmed can be seen hurling threats to Bollywood singers and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, even to “rape” them one by one. It’s understood Salman Ahmed recorded his video six months ago but it was released by one of his staff members recently.

Salman is the one who earlier released Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s video in which the singing icon could be seen beating one of his staff members. Salman had leaked the video after Rahat Fateh Ali Khan sacked him last month and announced a new management team of the Indians and the Pakistani promoters in Pakistan, UAE and the United States to look after his concerts and contracts.

Salman Ahmed currently manages top Bollywood artists such as Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Sonu Nigam, Shreya Goshal, Sunidhi Chauhan, Arijist Singh, Salim Sulaiman, Mika Singh, Aditya Marayan, Asha Bhosle, Sadhguru, Unit Narayan and Pakistan’s Atif Aslam. The Indian artists signed up with him for concerts and events in Dubai, the UK and the USA. He also organized concerts of Kumar Sanu, Sonu Nigam, Shreya Goshal, Sunidhi Chauhan and Alka Yagnik in the last two months of the last year in Dubai.

In his outburst, Salman Ahmed rebukes singers for behaving like celebrities and warns them of serious repercussions for failing to fulfill commitments.

Salman urged the people to pay close attention, stating that he would broadcast the video on TV as well.

He accused the “tiny individual” who was supposed to arrive at 9 o’clock but showed up at 12 o’clock, of being unreliable. He also expressed his determination against the popular singers who caused trouble and had a celebrity attitude.

“This is the mission of my life that I will get them molested one by one, all these so-called successful singers before my death. Their celebrity status aside, they are such crazy people.”

Salman Ahmed ends the video by mentioning a “Singh” artist he resolves to deal with. It’s believed that Salman Ahmed was referring to either Mika Singh or Arijist Singh as these are the only two Singh artists managed by him.

A showbiz insider said that Amir and Fahad work for Salman Ahmed’s company Portfolio Managing Events (PME) which is based in International Business Tower in United Arab Emirates’ Business Bay and has representatives in Mumbai, Pakistan, USA, Canada and many other places with big Indian and Pakistani populations.

The company website says it has “the experience to gather audiences together and engage them with a memorable show that is not easily forgotten. While building our professional network, we’ve also become experts in the field of marketing and promotions. Our partners come to us for help in building their brand, communicating promotional messages, or associating with an established brand (or figure) to help reach their goals.

Salman Ahmed, CEO & Founder of PME Entertainment stands as a prominent and highly regarded figure in the music and entertainment industry, boasting an illustrious career that spans more than three decades, says the website. “PME Entertainment, established in 1987, boasts over 35 years of extensive global experience in event curation and production. The company set up its UAE headquarters in April 2013, strategically positioning itself as a leader in the rapidly evolving entertainment industry. Committed to pushing boundaries and embracing innovation, PME has consistently maintained high standards in talent and AV production.”

He has been working with Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Sonu Nigam, Shreya Goshal, Sunidhi Chauhan, Arijist Singh, Salim Sulaiman, Mika Singh, Aditya Marayan, Asha Bhosle, Sadhguru, Unit Narayan and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan for many years now. Bollywood insiders fear that Salman Ahmed has made several secrets of artists and may release these videos if the artists decide to stop working with him.

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s new management has said Salam Ahmed released Rahat Fateh Ali’s video beating his student after Rahat Fateh Ali told Salman Ahmed he will not work with him anymore.
