Amaal Mallik says Parineeti, Alia and Salman can sing in movies but not croon at important events

It looks like Amaal Mallik’s Twitter battle with Sonakshi Sinha is not coming to a halt anytime soon.

A lot has been said about Sonakshi Sinha performing at Justin Bieber’s concert, when the International singer lands in Mumbai in the month of May.

It was Kailash Kher, who first pointed out at that Sonakshi singing with Justin Bieber is not a good idea. Amaal Mallik completely supported this thought and expressed his opinion on the issue. The entire controversy created an uproar on social media when the Dabangg actress took a dig at Amaan and his singer brother Armaan Mallik.

Now, Amaal Malik, who wants iconic singers to take the big stage on such a big occasion, told a leading daily, “I feel when an international singing icon tours our country, it is important to put forward our own icons, like Arijit Singh, KK, Sonu Nigam, and Armaan. India has some incredible talent that should represent us at such big international gigs.”

He further said, “Parineeti Chopra, Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor have done a good job with playback singing recently. I got Salman sir to sing Main Hoon Hero Tera for me. This is okay for films but for music concerts as big as Justin Bieber’s, I stand with Kailash Kher. Pure musical artistes should get the opportunity to perform instead of actors who are not conventional musicians.”

Sonakshi Sinha had also taken her stand by implying that the singer-composer duo had approached her for a collaboration.However, Sonakshi’s latest tweet on the matter also implies that she is no longer performing at Justin Bieber’s India concert.
