It was only recently when singer Sonu Nigam posted a vlog speaking about the wrongdoings in the Indian music industry. The vlog was in relation to the current furore in Bollywood due to the sudden demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput by suicide. The singer claimed that the industry is only run by two companies and they are the ones who decide who should sing and who shouldn’t. And now, he has taken to his social media to post another video where he is seen warning T-Series chairman Bhushan Kumar against defaming him.
Sonu Nigam titled the video “Laaton ke MAFIA baaton se nahi maante“.
Speaking in Hindi the singer said,“Bhushan Kumar, now I have to mention your name. And now, you deserve being addressed without respect. You have messed with the wrong person,”
“Do you remember the time when you would come to my home requesting me, ‘brother record an album for me. Brother, record Deewana for me. Brother, introduce me to Smita Thackeray and Bal Thackeray. Save me from Abu Salem. Abu Salem is abusing me, do you remember? Don’t mess with me, I am warning you.”
Do you remember, Marina Kanwar? I don’t know why they opted out, but the media knows how the mafia works. I still have that video with me. Now if you mess with me, I will upload that video on my YouTube channel. So don’t mess with me.
Responding to the video, Bhushan Kumar’s wife Divya Khosla Kumar posted a series of stories on her Instagram where she slammed Sonu Nigam. She said, “Today it’s all about who can run a good campaign… I’m even seeing people being able to sell lies and deceits with their strong campaigns.. #SonuNigam such kind of people know how to play with the minds of the audience… God save our world!!!”
She continued in the next story and added—
Sonu Nigam Ji T-Series ne aapko industry mein break diya,, apko aage badaya .. agar aapko itni hi khundas thi Bhushan se toh phele kyun nahi bole.. Aaj publicity ke liye kyon kar rahe hai.. aapke pitaji ke khud maine itne videos direct kiye jiseke liye voh humesha itne shukar guzar rehte the,, But some people are thankless #achasiladiyatunemerepyaarka.
