Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who was slammed by a few musicians for being approached as the opening act of Justin Bieber’s Navi Mumbai concert, will give the event a miss. She would rather have nothing to do with it given the recent mountain-out-of-a-molehill row that she was dragged into.
Sonakshi Sinha recently grabbed headlines for her controversy with singer Armaan Malik, Sona Mohapatra and Kailash Kher. The singers had objected to Sona being chosen for the opening act of Grammy Award winner Justin Bieber’s Mumbai concert.
Kailash Kher, Armaan Malik and Sona Mohapatra criticised Sonakshi Sinha after realising she might share the stage with the pop star. They felt singers, and not actors, should be given the chance to front a music concert.
Sonakshi Sinha’s reply to Armaan and Sona lead to a war of words with Twitterati slamming the actress and supporting the singers. Post the controversy, Sonakshi had issued a statement on Twitter clarifying on the same. She posted, “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.”
