Actor Sonu Sood is having an identity crisis on Twitter after singer Sonu Nigam posted a series of grumpy tweets this morning about being woken by the morning azaan. The difference in last name has escaped some of those calling for a boycott of films – they’ve got the wrong Sonu and are trolling Mr Sood instead of Mr Nigam.
Twitter has been galvanized into a frenzy of activity after reading posts from Sonu Nigam in which he complained that he was forced awake by the call to prayer despite not being Muslim, denounced the use of loudspeakers by mosques, temples and gurudwaras, and described having his sleep disturbed as ‘gundagardi.’ His tweets have divided social media opinion, with several taking his side and others criticizing his posts as hateful and intolerant.
There was a very unlikely Bollywood celebrity who got trolled with Nigam: Film actor Sonu Sood. And that’s because of his first name, Sonu.
Sood, who wasn’t entirely aware of the situation, finally put out a tweet.
