Singer Sonu Nigam, who had claimed that the Indian music industry runs like the mafia, has once again involved himself in a controversy for his comments.

The singer is receiving massive backlash for saying, that he doesn't want his son, Neevan, to be a singer, "at least not in this country".

In a recent interview with Times Now, when the singer was questioned about his son's ambitions, he said, "frankly, I don't want him to be a singer, at least not in this country. Anyway, he does not live in India anymore, he lives in Dubai. I have already got him out of India".

"He is a born singer but he has another interest in life. As of now, he is one of the topmost gamers of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He is number 2 in Fortnite. There is a game called Fortnite and he is the top gamers in the Emirates. He is a brilliant child with a lot of qualities and talent. And I don't want to tell him what to do. Let's see what he wants to do himself," he added.

After his interview went viral, netizens on the microblogging website lashed out at the singer for his comments.

A user wrote: "You can also shift with Your son in Dubai, we also don't want You..!!"

Another tweeted, "Can't expect such comments from a singer of Sonu Nigam' stature ! Utter disregard and ingratitude towards Motherland ! He is no different from an eminent Actor like Naseeruddin Shah and others... Wealth, stature and and Personal Ego can't be digested by shallow personalities !"

"This very statement provides an insight to the extent how much corrupt the Bollywood has become. Without a nepo background you'll become an outcast," wrote a user.
