Sonakshi Sinha and singer Armaan Malik indulged in a war of words yesterday on Twitter. The issue began after Armaan expressed his annoyance on Sonakshi Sinha performing at the upcoming Justin Bieber concert in Mumbai.
Armaan tweeted, “Agree with @Kailashkher sir! Actors are actors & singers are singers. Leave the stage & mic to us, that’s our playground not yours.”
Sonakshi got offended with this tweet and lashed out at Malik. She posted, “And this is definitely not the same tune you were singing when you wanted me to sing for you.”
Guess, Sonakshi’s tweet didn’t go down well with a few singers and she got slammed by them on Twitter. Sona Mohapatra tweeted to Sinha, “Let’s start with some commitment to ‘craft’ & ‘technique’ to start with? ART is a big word to throw around here in my ‘artistic’ opinion. Such a slap on the face of music, audiences, fans of music, performing artists, live music, musicians & also on India. Integrity be damned. Showing no care for true musicians life time of commitment & cutting the line to pursue your entitled ‘dream’ be okay dear Sonakshi? C’mon.”
While some did support Sona, there were many who supported Armaan and his views.
To put an end to this entire controversy, Sonakshi issued a statement later in the day, that read, “Firstly, I am not performing at the Bieber concert. It was speculated because I was approached and carried forward by publications and portals even after I stated in various interviews that it’s not happening. Secondly, I am an actor who loves music, who loves to perform and who loves to sing. And if anyone has a problem with that, in the wise words of baba Bieber himself… they can go “love” themselves. Over and out. – Sonakshi Sinha’s statement on the Justin Bieber concert.”
We wonder what Armaan has to say now!
