Singer Sonu Nigam, who performed a show at a college in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad city recently, was humiliated by the organizer, who is also the owner of college, by not letting him to go despite repeated requests.
After returning back in Mumbai, Sonu Nigam called a press conference and just blasted off his reactions against the disrespectful organizer, Manish Jain, who is also the group vice chairman of Teerthanker Mahaveer University where Nigam performed.
Sonu Nigam told the reporters, "I was not supposed to go for the show (in UP) as my mom was in a critical condition, and in spite of that I went and performed for three hours as I had given a commitment, but I was completely zapped with the behavior of Manish Jain who is the college owner."
Nigam said that after the concert got over, he had leave for Delhi to catch the 4 am flight, but Mr. Jain was not letting him to go, just because he wanted to click pictures of his friends and family members with him. Though Sonu patiently clicked pictures with almost all of them, and even said that his mom is unwell and had to leave, but Mr. Jain started saying that he had spent Rs. 50 lakh for the show and would not let him to leave till he clicked pictures with everyone.
The 39-year-old singer, who patiently continued to click pictures with every person till about 1.30 am, said that he was extremely upset and people from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar need to change their mind set, where this is one of the reasons why artistes avoid concerts in these states. Sonu lastly said that his only intention to bring press conference was that artistes should be respected, because they are here to entertain you.
