After Sonu Nigam, Singer Suchitra Tweets About Azaan and Loudspeakers

Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam landed himself in hot water after his Azaan rant which conclusively cost him to shave his head.

The Kal Ho Naa Ho singer received a lot of flak for branding the call of prayer ‘forced religiousness.’ Now, another Bollywood singer, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, who is also ex-wife of famed director Shekhar Kapur,  gave her opinion on the Azaan – and ultimately faced the same fate as Sonu. The Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa actor took to Twitter to express her anger on ‘imposed religiosity.’ She wrote, “Came home at 4.45 am 2 most aggressive/ear shattering call of azaan. Nothing more lowlife & dumb than such extreme imposed religiousity.”


After Suchitra’s rant, Twitterati went on to criticise the singer-cum-actor for her thoughts.

However, the singer went on add, “Extreme religiousity dumbs and dwarfs the mind & restricts free thought. Applicable to all religions.”

Farah Ali Khan, sister of Suzzanne and Zayed Khan called out the singer for having some dignity in her tweet. She wrote, “My dear,I normally would not comment but your description of the Azaan that annoys u speaks lowly of you. You could have had more dignity in your comment.”

It was after Farah’s tweet, that Suchitra realised that she might have been a bit too harsh with her words.

Previously, Sonu’s Azaan row situation spiraled out of control and a Muslim cleric reportedly announced a reward of INR1 million for whoever shaves the singer’ head, Sonu responded on Twitter by saying that he will do so himself.
