Bollywood composer, singer and performer Mika Singh just unfolded his latest controversy. He sent legal notices to a TV channel to clear his dues. Well, there is a reason. And he is not so baseless this time. I’ll have to start the tale from ‘Comedy Baadshah’ Kapil Sharma.
Kapil used to do a popular comedy reality show ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ in Colors. When the terms have gone wrong between Kapil Sharma and Colors Management, he moved on and started a new show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ in Sony. And he has always been a sweet heart to his team, everyone including Navjot Singh Sidhu (better known as Siddu ji) moved along with him. As colors will have certain rights on the concept of the show, they kept the format same and asked Bollywood star Govinda’s niece Krishna Abhishek to replace Kapil and he did so. Mika Singh got in to the couch of Navjoth Singh as a special guest for the show.
Recently Mika has appeared in ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ for an episode to promote his songs. It’s common that composers and performers go to every channel to promote themselves but it didn’t please the Comedy Nights producers and Colors management. They’ve removed Mika from the show immediately. It did hurt him but he kept everything inside and said, ‘I am not hurt or disappointed with their decision. No artiste is bigger than the channel and my absence will not cost them much. I know that the channel is upset and I hope things get resolved soon. But I can only say that it wasn’t intentional.’
He talked so soberly like never before, who would’ve expected he’ll come back with a bang? He kept quiet for a while and one fine day sent legal notices to the channel. The notices are for withholding his pending dues. He said he is not so bothered about the ‘Special Guest’ seat; he just wants his dues to be cleared. Makes sense!
But didn’t you get it yet? It’s Mika’s style of Counterstroke.
