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). They were ac­cused of tak­ing ₹1 crore to help peo­ple travel abroad il­le­gally. But he proved the al­le­ga­tions wrong. 2006 A video from Rakhi Sawant’s birth­day where Mika kissed her forcibly went vi­ral. 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.
