‘If Son­akshi sings well on stage, I’ll be the first to clap’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - PTI

Singer Sona Mo­ha­p­a­tra (far right) says she has noth­ing per­sonal against Son­akshi Sinha (inset) and if the ac­tor goes on stage and sings well, she will be the first per­son to ap­plaud her.

Son­akshi re­cently blocked Sona on Twit­ter af­ter the singer crit­i­cised her for be­ing “con­de­scend­ing” to mu­si­cians who had ex­pressed dis­plea­sure over the news of the star’s per­for­mance at the Justin Bieber con­cert in In­dia. When asked if things have cooled down be­tween the duo, Sona says there was never a war be­tween them. “That’s a gen­eral state­ment I made. That got picked up as some kind of a fight be­tween me and Son­akshi and it’s ridicu­lous. I have noth­ing per­sonal against her. If she sings well on stage, I would be the first one to clap for her,” says Sona, who’s known for songs such as Naina (2014) and Jiya Laage Na (Taalash, 2012).

Af­ter the furore, Son­akshi clar­i­fied that she would not be singing at the con­cert. “It was spec­u­lated be­cause I was ap­proached by pub­li­ca­tions and por­tals even af­ter I stated in var­i­ous in­ter­views that it’s not hap­pen­ing,” she said, adding, “Se­condly, I am an ac­tor who loves singing. And if any­one has a prob­lem with that, in the words of Bieber, him­self... they can go ‘love’ them­selves.”
