The debate whether actors should venture into singing or not has been initiated by none other than the young talent of the industry, Armaan Malik, who won many hearts with his soulful voice in popular renditions like ‘Main Hoon Hero Tera’ and ‘Bol Do Na Zara’ fame. But the young singer’s arguments didn’t cut any ice with Noor actor, Sonakshi Sinha. After a series of tweets where Armaan and Sonakshi debated whether actors should sing or not with Justin Bieber’s maiden concert in India being the flash point. The whole thing blew up with Armaan’s brother Amaal Malik also jumping into the debate. Sorry and Baby singer Justin Bieber is all set to perform at the DY Patil Stadium on 10 May 2017.
It all began when the news of Sonakshi Sinha opening the upcoming Justin Bieber concert came out. While the fans didn’t pay much heed to it owing to the celebrities-culture in the country, the performers, especially the singer’s community took offense. Singer Kailash Kher, known for his electrifying live stage performances, was the first one to speak on the topic. In an interview, Kailash was quoted saying, ” It doesn’t give a good message internationally. They (people from foreign shores) will think that Sonakshi must be a big singer in India. And then she will get concert offers from Canada, and then probably Sonakshi will laugh them off saying ‘I am not a singer but an actor’.
Sonakshi’s message says, “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 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 also wrote, “And this is definitely not the same tune you were singing when you wanted me to sing for you Armaan’s brother Amaal also took to Twitter and said, “Yes I know baba, but Armaan never said anything about collaborating, I must’ve said but we together never went and asked for anything !”
Armaan’s tweet came in wake of singer Kailash Kher’s comment in an interview where he said, “I read somewhere that a Canadian singer Justin Bieber is coming to India, and actress Sonakshi will perform at the gig. The news was cute, but quite a lie. It doesn’t give a good message internationally. They (people from foreign shores) will think that Sonakshi must be a big singer in India. And then she will get concert offers from Canada, and then probably Sonakshi will laugh them off saying ‘I am not a singer but an actor’.”
