Mumbai: Armaan Malik got into a debate with Sonakshi Sinha on Twitter after he criticised the trend of actors turning playback singers.
Armaan shared an article in which singer Kailash Kher had said that he is not happy with the decision of the event managers to rope in Sonakshi as one of the opening acts for Pop star Justin Bieber’s first-ever India concert.
Armaan, 21, tweeted the link of the article saying, “Agree with @Kailashkher sir! Actors are actors & singers are singers. Leave the stage & mic to us, that’s our playground not yours.”
Sonakshi, 29, responded, saying, “A secure artiste would always encourage another artiste to grow their skills and follow their dreams. Art in any form should not be suppressed.”
Armaan has also crooned the title track of Sonakshi’s latest release “Noor”. The actress took a dig at Armaan, saying he wanted her to sing for him.
“And this is definitely not the same tune you were singing when you wanted me to sing for you,” Sonakshi wrote.
The “Bol Do Na Zara” singer, however, corrected the star and said it was not him but composer-borther Amaal Malik, who wanted to work with her.
“You are mistaking me for @AmaalMallik he is the composer,” he wrote.
