Mumbai, June 25 T-Series chairman and MD Bhushan Kumar's wife Divya Khosla Kumar is facing flak from netizens after she posted a video slamming Sonu Nigam.
Divya had shared a video on Instagram where she replied to the allegations levelled by Sonu Nigam against her husband Bhushan Kumar. She claimed in the video how T-Series gives a break to so many newcomer artistes while Sonu Nigam never does that. She also accused Sonu Nigam of not standing by T-Series after Gulshan Kumar's demise, when Bhushan Kumar was just 18 years old. Divya had also alleged that Sonu Nigam had a link with Abu Salem, which is why Bhushan approached him for help.
However, netizens do not seem to be very convinced with the Divya's assertion. Rather, they continue extending support to the singer. Memes and trolls targeting Divya Khosla Kumar flooded Twitter throughout Thursday as the hashtag #DivyaKhoslaKumar kept trending.
"I thought @sonamakapoor & #sonakshisinha were worst actress ever but this woman #DivyaKhoslaKumar not only takes the cherry but she takes away entire cake," tweeted a user.
"Best Supporting Actor Of The Year #Sheru The Cook," wrote another user making fun of how Divya Khosla Kumar featured their house's old cook Sheru working since 1988 to speak against Sonu Nigam in her video.
Netizens also expressed anger over how old songs are recreated by the label, including the popular Falguni Pathak number "Yaad piya ki aane lagi" the remix of which featured Divya Khosla Kumar in the video.
"This is what you morons have done to Indian music industry!! No originals, only spreading your body over a chair playing remixes in the background #DivyaKhoslaKumar and #BhushanKumar need to be removed for real talent to get its due!," retorted a user.
"Citing Bhagvad Gita doesn't makes you correct. Also You owe an apology to all your viewers for "yaad piya ki aane lagi". Original version by falgunii pathak ji was way more melodious and sensible. @TSeries #divyakhoslakumar," tweeted another user.
While Divya Khosla Kumar has turned off the comments section of her video on Instagram, Sonu Nigam reposted her video on his Instagram account inviting people to comment on the same! "l think she forgot to open her comments. Let's help her in that," wrote Sonu Nigam, appearing to be in his sarcastic best.
