Earlier, we released videos of Sonu Nigam performing on a chartered flight from Jodhpur. The singer, who was returning from an event, was on a plane with the rest of the guests from said party – and since he had gotten quite close to everyone, he decided to do a quick, spontaneous performance in the air for all of them. Going by the videos, everyone had a great time, but unfortunately this ended up becoming something of a controversy.
Today, news broke that five Jet Airways airhostesses have been suspended for allowing him to do this.
Sonu Nigam has now reacted to this, saying:
I have witnessed an elaborate fashion show in an aircraft. I have heard of small concerts happening in an aircraft. I have seen Pilots and Crew Members cracking humorous jokes to loosen up passengers in other countries, which is so cool. To suspend crew members for asking me to sing on the address system, when the seat belt signs were off, and no announcements were to be made, is nothing less than punishing someone for spreading happiness. This act of lack of Common Sense, according to me, is Real Intolerance.
What’s your take on this matter?
