Creativity is something that always continues to be the “bone of contention” between “glamorous” actors and “creative” team off the camera. Everything seems hunky dory from outside but a sharp contrast of views and opinions does exist between the musicians plus singers and actors in Bollywood. The latest spat between the actress Sonakshi Sinha and singers; Sona Mohapatra, Armaan Malik and Kailash Kher is out in the open.

Even during the Coldplay (a popular British rockband) India Concert last year, similar goof-up happened. At that time, many fans and music lovers were disappointed that big stars completely overshadowed the event. Several Bollywood A-list celebs including the likes of Shraddha Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Parineeti Chopra, Ayushmann Khuranna and Sonakshi Sinha graced the occasion sans any specialist Indian singers.

Now, the famous Justin Bieber concert is set to be held on May 14 next month and again a similar controversy came to the fore. Actress Sonakshi Sinha whose recently released film Noor bombed at the box office despite having a strong script, was approached by the event organizers to showcase her singing talents at the Bieber event.

Sonakshi Sinha Vs Musicians & Singers!

It all started when the veteran singer Kailash Kher took a jibe at the recent trend of actors performing on stage whenever an international singer, musician or music band performs in India. “Whenever any singer from the West comes to India, we get an actor on board to match their level. We don’t get singer for another singer, but actor… Event managers and producers of the entertainment industry are so scared. It doesn’t give a good message internationally,” Kailash Kher stated to a site.

Then music composer and singer Armaan Malik also echoed what Kailash Kher stated leading to an open spat with Sonakshi Sinha on twitter. Soon, singer Sona Mohapatra also joined the twitter tiff saying someone from singing fraternity should grace the Bieber event.

Sona Mohapatra voiced her opinions in a series of tweets aimed at Dabangg actress. Shockingly, actress Sonakshi Sinha has blocked Sona, and the latter shared the news on social media.

However, the event’s promoter strongly contradicted what singers were speaking “with regards to inclusion of Bollywood stars, for music events of this stature which attract colossal media traction, it’s hard to shy away from the fact that Bollywood plays a very vital role in generating mass awareness and enhancing the global goodwill of the country,” Director of the White Fox India Arjun Jain said in a statement.

Sonakshi Sinha later tweeted that “a secure artist wud always encourage another artist to grow their skills and follow their dreams. Art in any form should not be suppressed”. Latest news also confirmed that Sonakshi Sinha won’t perform at the Justin Bieber’s India Event (Purpose Tour).

A Word of Advice for Sonakshi Sinha, Bollywood Musicians & Singers

It doesn’t matter whether Bollywood celebs listen to my advice or not. They might not be even reading this article either. But all that I can say here is that “Creativity is something that has no ends. Whether you do it well or bad but passion has to be there. Just as actors can become singers similarly singers can also become actors without any fuss if they have that aptitude or wish.

By that logic, Sonakshi Sinha is somewhere right when she said “creativity shouldn’t be suppressed, but then blocking a person for criticizing her isn’t right.

Creativity is all about perfection and this perfection varies from persons to persons. It’s not definite and static. When you are into a creative world hogging limelight then you have to bear difference of opinions and criticisms time and again.

We fans hope that this bridge between creative artistes and actors is reconciled soon. Acting, singing, directing and music form the core a film’s soul – without these elements a film-making is literally impossible.
