Lead singer & composer of the album, Utsav Bhanja says - "I started this project with my fellow musician Mr. Sharib Ali in November 2011. We worked hard on the compositions and recordings. Unfortunately, his sudden absence during the peak time of the project due to some unavoidable situations have left me clueless. I have no other option but to postpone the project and complete it alone."
Mr. Daljit Singh, manager & partner at Jackson Records says - "Shiddat is a vital project. It has got our company investment into it and also is a collection of wonderful music by Utsav and justified lyrics by Ali. Jackson Records is hopeful about the album due to its rich content. This is unfortunate that during the last weeks when we were expecting the project to get completed, Mr. Ali could not contribute to the album thereby hampering the timely completion of the project. We understand that this piece of hard work should not get wasted for whatever reason it might be. The company understands that the contract has been partially violated but we have settled the issues with Utsav Bhanja and this project will not close. Jackson Records will be releasing Shiddat by Utsav Bhanja by the end of August 2012. In the mean time if Mr. Ali Sharib can join the project & make his official contributions (as discussed between the Artists & Company) by 31st July 2012, we can have the musical duo back on track as a proper 'Duo'.
