This is not the first time the 'Badi Mushkil Hai' singer has landed in legal trouble. In 2015, the singer had shown support to actor Salman Khan who was an accused in the hit and run case by making comments on the people who sleep on pavements and roads. An advocate had filed a complaint against the singer, stating that his comment was 'derogatory'. In another incident in 2016, the singer hurled abuses at a journalist on Twitter after she differed from his opinion on the Chennai Infosys techie's murder.
