Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam has landed in a controversy after his statement at AajTak Summit. During an interaction at the Summit, the popular singer said that things would have been better for him if he were a Pakistani singer.
“Sometimes, I feel like it would be better if I was from Pakistan. At least I would get offers from India,” he said at the event.
On Tuesday, the singer slammed a section of the media for missing “the real content”. He also clarified that his point was something else and was presented in a different manner.
Sonu took to his Facebook account and said that the real content has been missed.
“Sometimes in an attempt to make headlines catchy and sensational, some journalists miss the real content. Yesterday’s AajTak Summit happened so amazing, and look what have they reduced it to…”
“My point about being better off being born in Pakistan was about the music companies in India asking Indian singers to pay 40-50 per cent of their concerts remunerations to them, and only then they’ll work with those artistes.. but they don’t ask the same from the singers from abroad, namely Pakistan,” Sonu wrote.
Here is the post.
During the Summit, the singer also talked about remixes. “Earlier, the composers, lyricists, and singers created a song. Now, the music companies have taken over that job,” he said.
