Sonu Nigam’s Pakistan comment and the singer backing Anu Malik hasn’t gone down well with fellow singer Sona Mohapatra. But Sonu says every issue “doesn’t need quarreling around it”. During a summit, Sonu talked about why so many songs are being remixed these days. “Sometimes, I feel like it would be better if I was from Pakistan. At least I would get offers from India,” he joked.
He also said: “If you say, ‘Anu Malik met me this morning’, that’s fine. You accused him without any proof; let’s accept that too. Had he (Anu Malik) wanted to say anything, he could have said a lot. But he did not.
“If I say that you misbehaved with me, you will ask me for proof. But there’s no proof, right? Despite that, people are respecting the accusers, who are tarnishing Anu Malik’s name. But how can you ban him? How can you snatch his bread and butter? How can you torture his family?
