Abhijeet Bhattacharya was suspended from Twitter on May 23 for offensive tweets addressing certain female users, after which he re-joined the micro-blogging site on Monday with the moniker '@singerabhijeet.'
Parineeti Chopra, who made her singing debut with the song Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahin, shared a duet version of the song on Twitter
"The amplification of the sound during azaan comes from insecurity. Not just here but also in Israel apparently where three different religions co-exist. It's been written about so I believe it's the same," said Saif Ali Khan
Sonu Nigam's tweet supposedly appears to be in response to some reports that claimed azaan cannot be heard near the singer's apartment in Andheri West and that his tweets on azaan were for mere publicity
"There was a life before Twitter....and it is platform for abuse," says Sonu Nigam, the reveled singer who recently gave up his right to express in 140 characters on the micro blogging site over controversy surrounding another famous singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya. Although, Mr Nigam doesn't necessarily subscribe to Mr Bhattacharya, he does respect the singer. Mr Nigam, who recently courted another controversy after publicly criticising the Azan recital during dawn, claims that people make religion a 'big deal' and that he wasn't insensitive about the issue. On the growing resentment against Pakistani singers and performers showcasing their talent in India, Mr Nigam opines that art has no boundaries and that only a bridge of friendship can bring the two nations together.
After singer Sonu Nigam shaved his head in response to a fatwa, Syed Sha Atel Ali Al Quaderi of the West Bengal Minority United Council told NDTV that's he's not going to pay the reward of Rs 10 lakh because all his conditions hadn't been met.
Singer Sonu Nigam shaved his head this afternoon in Mumbai, as promised in a tweet. Addressing the press earlier, Mr Nigam said, "Shaving hair is no challenge or negativity, it's a symbolic move - asking, what are you making this country? What are these fatwas?" The 43-year-old singer was referring to a Muslim cleric's offering of a reward of Rs 10 lakhs for anyone who would shave Mr Nigam's head and garland him with old shoes.
