Once again, Sonu Nigam has been mired in a controversy. After making an infamous comment about morning Azaan, the singer has this time said that it would have been better if he was from Pakistan. During a conversation at Aajtak Summit, the singer said, “Sometimes, I feel as if it would have been better if I were from Pakistan. At least I would get offers from India.” Soon after this statement, he received backlash and was targeted by trolls. Now, taking to social media, Sonu Nigam cleared the air about his comment.

He wrote on Facebook, “Sometimes in an attempt to make headlines catchy and sensational, some journalists miss the real content. Yesterday's Aajtak Summit happened so amazing, and look what have they reduced it to... My point about being better off being born in Pakistan was about the music companies in India asking Indian singers to pay 40-50% of their concerts remunerations to them, and only then they'll work with those artistes.. but they don't ask the same from the singers from abroad, namely Pakistan..! This was the important point I made... and these guys...! Changed it to "'I would have been better off born in Pakistan I'd have work come my way.. " What do I say. PATHETIC”

During the summit, Sonu Nigam also criticized the remix culture in Bollywood industry, and said, “Nowadays, singers have to pay music companies for shows. If we don’t shell out the money, they will play songs sung by other singers and highlight them. Then, they will take money from them.”

Well, Sonu may have cleared his stance on the comment, but we know it’s not going to be easy escaping the trolls.
