Sonu Nigam vs. Bhushan Kumar
Post Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely demise, Sonu Nigam took to social media to share his candid thoughts on the supposed monopoly in the music industry. Name-calling Bhushan Kumar, the 47-year-old singer claimed that the T-Series chairman had pleaded with Nigam to save him from gangster Abu Salem and stated not to dare mess with him. Sonu’s allegations weren’t taken too kindly to as Bhushan’s wife Divya Khosla Kumar took to social media as well to diminish the singer’s claims. While stating how T-Series has given the opportunity to atleast 80 percent people, Divya also questioned if Nigam is associated with Salem. The social media fight led to a nationwide debate over music monopoly in the country.
