He is a born singer but he has another interest in life.” The singer added that his son is excellent at Fortnite. “As of now, he is one of the topmost gamers of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He is number 2 in Fortnite. There is a game called Fortnite and he is the top gamers in the Emirates. He is a brilliant child with a lot of qualities and talent.

Earlier this year, Sonu had accused T-Series of being the ‘mafia’ in the music industry. In a long video, he claimed, “Tune galat aadmi se panga le liya, samjha (You have messed with the wrong person, understand)”. He further said that Bhushan planted articles about him in the media and persuaded musicians to give interviews against him. The singer then warned him to back-off and he would expose him.
