Pay Rs 5 crore, Gang of Ravi Pujari determine 'Tum Hi Ho' singer Arijit Singh

Having no connection with any heated discussion, Singh has still got this call and has been asked to give Rs.5 crores. Arijit hasn’t yet hunting any formal complaint against gangster Pujari but a diary entry has been made in the Oshiwara Police station.

As per police, Arijit told Pujari he doesn’t have that much money and will not be able to meet the requirements. Then Pujari told Singh that he likes his voice and also asked him to do a couple of shows. Singh refused to perform free shows and thereafter nearer the police.

“This is the first time something like this has happened to me. And I don’t think it is a big deal at all. All organisers want to make money and this is getting out of hand because of Ravi Pujari’s name being involved. It’s all a part and parcel of the business.” Singh told.

Arijit also revealed how the episode came to happen. He told Mumbai Mirror, “I am touring the US in September and have a lot of shows coming up there. The shows are being handled by Nattu bhai, who had organised my US tour in 2014 as well. Nattu bhai co-ordinates with promoters from different cities and gets a lot of last-minute requests for extra shows.

Adding he said, “We decided to not go ahead with one such promoter because he kept bargaining for a lower budget. This particular promoter had certain connections and contacted Ravi Pujari, who exerted a lot of pressure of my manager, Tarsane. I do not answer calls when I am at my studio and Pujari kept pressurising Tarsane, who got scared and informed me of the calls, and then filed a police complaint.”

Arijit is one of the most popular singers of today and he has sung songs like Khamoshiyan, Aaj Phir Tumpe, Aashiqui, Saawan, Kabhi jo baadal barse etc.
