Sonu Nigam: I have agreed to perform at the event next year
Festival organisers of the recently concluded Gorakhpur Mahotsav have threatened to issue an administrative notice to Sonu Nigam after he failed to perform at the Bollywood Night event, when an initially decided upon date was revised.
Festivities had been brought to a stand-still on January 13, after the Indian government declared a day of mourning in the wake of the January 10 death of the Sultan of Omar, Qaboos bin Said.
Nigam tells mid-day, “When a show is booked, [apart from the singer], musicians, engineers and technicians charge [for] the time [they are allotting]. When the organisers cancel a show, it isn’t [the artistes’] fault.
