Addressing his struggles, Amaal Mallik also said, 'For one year, I had no work. I don't think anyone repeated me just like other newcomers. So it's been a 50-50 situation. It's not happened overnight for me or my brother as well'
The legendary Sonu Nigam recently posted a fiery video on his YouTube channel, over what he claimed to be two major "Music Mafias" having a monopoly over the entire music industry that could lead to suicide cases emerging soon. Alarmingly captioning the video: "You might soon hear about suicides in the music industry," he said, "Sushant Singh Rajput died, an actor died. Tomorrow, you can hear the same about a singer, or a composer, or a lyrics writer. Because the music scenario in our country... there are bigger 'mafias' here that in the film industry, unfortunately." Watch it below.
Now countering Sonu Nigam's allegations, talented singer/composer Amaal Mallik has said, "First of all, with due respect to my dad, he wasn't an ace composer. He never got the success that my uncle did. So it wasn't a phone call that went and someone said, 'Please listen to my son, he is a composer'. He's obviously done his share of songs and he found his little bit of success. When Armaan sang his first song for Vishal Dadlani, he didn't know that they were making Daboo Malik's son sing. He went inside the studio when he was 10-11, sang a scratch and it went on to be part of Bhoothnath. He didn't get the opportunity because he was so and so's kid."
