The online war between Bollywood actor Divya Khosla Kumar and playback singer Sonu Nigam is only getting hotter by the day. The two are locked in a heated duel on social media platforms ever since Sonu Nigam accused Bhushan Kumar of maligning his name for speaking out against favouritism in the music industry. Bhushan's wife Divya Khosla Kumar, after hitting back at the singer, took to her social media account to share a fresh video.
She said that Sonu Nigam has started a campaign against T-Series and Bhushan Kumar. She claimed that T-series had given a break to many outsiders including singers, music directors, lyricists and actors. She said she gave a chance to Neha Kakkar, Rakul Preet Singh and Himansh Kohli and they have become big in the industry. Divya challenged Sonu Nigam to reveal as to "how many people he has given a break and if he has ever promoted any new talent in the industry". She alleged that Sonu Nigam has not given a chance to anyone and is now blaming T-series. Divya further claimed that "97 per cent of people working in T-Series are outsiders, not industry kids."
Divya Khosla Kumar further added, "Gulshan Kumar has spotted Sonu Nigam when he used to sing in Delhi's Ramleela for Rs. 5 and called him to Mumbai from Delhi." In the video, Divya introduces Sheru who has been working as a cook at Kumar's house since 1988. Taking over from Divya, Sheru, in the video, says that "Gulshan Kumar brought Sonu Nigam from Delhi to Mumbai and has given many opportunities." He further says that "whatever Sonu Nigam is today is because of Gulshanji." Here is the video.
After this video, Twitter exploded with memes about how Divya has got her own chef Sheru to back her claims. Sonu Nigam took to his Instagram and shared the video of Divya Khosla Kumar. He captioned it as, "Presentttttting Divyaaaaa Khoslaaaaa Kumaaaaar. I think she forgot to open her comments. Let's help her in that."
After the death of Bollywood actor, Sushant Singh Rajput, Sonu Nigam said that "An actor, the one at whom everybody is pointing fingers these days, has done this with me, saying I should not be made to sing, the same actor has done this with Arijit Singh also. What is this? How can you use your power like that?" Sonu Nigam shared a video and captioned it as, "You might soon hear about suicides in the music industry." Here is the video.
