Sonu Nigam threatened by underworld don Chhota Shakeel

The singer was asked to change the event management company, failing to do so, his relationship with a Mumbai based woman would be made public

Singer-cum-composer Sonu Nigam received threat calls from underworld don Chhota Shakeel, who is dreaded criminal Dawood Ibrahim’s close aide. Sonu told the police that Shakeel made several calls and demanded to change the event management company that will handle the singer’s 2014 tour.

If sources are to be believed, Sonu was asked to change the organisers of the event as Dawood preferred another event management company. Shakeel also threatened that if the singer failed to do so he would expose Sonu’s relationship with a Mumbai-based woman.

Nigam is yet to record a detailed statement and file an FIR. In the meanwhile, the police may provide security to Sonu. The singer had planned a tour in 2014 during which he would have shows in 12 countries.
