2018 Mika’s name cropped up with that of his brothers Daler Mehndi and late Shamsher Singh, in a human trafficking case (that surfaced in 2003).

She filed a molestation case against the singer. 2013 Mika was held at Mumbai international airport for carrying Indian and foreign currencies beyond the limits. 2014 Mika allegedly hit an auto, injuring the passenger. But he later denied driving the vehicle involved. Mika said Bipasha Basu kissed him on a comedy show in Dubai, and flaunted the mark on twitter. When she denied it, Mika said the kiss was by a performer on the show. 2015 At a Delhi concert, Mika slapped a doctor, which caused a perforation in the latter’s eardrum. Mika said the doctor misbehaved. 2016 A Mumbai-based model, Priyanka Kumar, filed an FIR at Versova police station in Mumbai, accusing Mika of falsely promising her acting and modelling jobs. Mika soon issued a statement claiming that he did not even know the model.
