Sinha slammed the singer for expressing his opinion. Obviously, Sonakshi’s comment didn’t go down well with the singing community and they too lashed out at the actress. 

Recently, in an interview, Parineeti Chopra, who recently made her singing debut with Meri Pyaari Bindu’s Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahin, was asked to comment about the same controversy. The actress supported Sonakshi and said, “When I am acting, no one has a problem. When I am dancing, no professional dancer has complained. When I crack a joke, I haven’t heard any professional comedian complain. I wear designer clothes, but fashion designers don’t have a problem and when I do action, the stunt-persons don’t raise objections. Then why this hue and cry about actors singing?" 

She added, "Are we saying that if I am an actor, I should only act in a film? Who decides what I can do and can’t do? Where does this debate end? And why are we having it? Singing is an integral part of the entertainment experience. I feel we all need to know a bit of everything to be complete entertainers. And I want to know more about the singer in me." 

We wonder what Armaan and Amaal have to say about this! 

Meanwhile, Parineeti Chopra is currently gearing up for the release of her movie Meri Pyaari Bindu. The film also stars Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead and is slated to release next week. In the movie, Parineeti plays a singer whereas Ayushmann is a writer. It is directed by Akshay Roy and produced by Maneesh Sharma. Simultaneously, Parineeti is also shooting for Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again. The movie also stars Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Kunal Kemmu, Shreyas Talpade and Tabu in the lead roles. Parineeti is the new addition to the Golmaal family and going by her posts on social media, she clearly seems to be enjoying being a part of it.
