Sonakshi Sinha is in the eye of a storm, and this time it is not because of one of her movies. Day before yesterday, news got out that she was going to be the opening act for popstar Justin Bieber’s concert in Mumbai. The piece of news quickly caught fire when singer Kailash Kher expressed his displeasure over the gig going to an actor instead of struggling musicians.

Singer Armaan Malik joined Kailash Kher’s bandwagon and mentioned there were thousands of struggling artists who wouldn’t have access to a gig like this, and it was only wrong that a less capable singer was factoring her fame for the opportunity. He even got into a war of words with the Noor actor who claimed that he ‘was singing a different tune’ when he approached her for a song.

Since then, a lot many singers have come forward and voiced their dissent against a Bollywood actor using their fame to usurp an opportunity of several struggling musicians who toil day and night for a high profile show like this. Which forced Sonakshi Sinha to post a clarification that she isn’t going to be a part of the performance, and that the news was just a ‘rumour’.

Even as she did this, she couldn’t help but block one of the singers who voiced her disappointment over the actor’s singing abilities. Among them was singer Sona Mohapatra, who posted a screenshot as her badge of honour. Not before she called her out in a series of tweets.

Sonakshi also included a line in her clarification that those who asked her ‘not to sing’ can ‘go love themselves’. 

Sona soon posted on Twitter that she was blocked by Sonakshi, not that she ever ‘followed’ her in the first place. 

Actions speak louder than words?
