Divya Khosla Kumar slammed Sonu Nigam for signing up another company after Gulshan Kumar’s death. She said, “When tragedy struck T-Series family after the death of Gulshan Kumar, Sonu Nigam thought the company will sink and so he signed up with an obscure music company. He was thankless, he did not think twice about standing with T-Series in a tough time, didn’t think about supporting Gulshan Kumar ji’s son Bhushan ji, who was only 18 then”.

Divya revealed Sonu Nigam was launched by T-Series when Gulshan Kumar was alive. She said, Sonu Nigam used to sing in Delhi’s Ramleela for Rs 5. It was there that Gulshan Kumar spotted him, recognised his talent and gave him a flight ticket to Mumbai and told him. Gulshan ji said beta, I will make you a big artist. How can you be so thankless?”
“Sonu Nigam is now using that phase as a leverage today to hit out at T-Series. Sonu Nigam claims Bhushan ji asked him ‘mujhe Abu Salem se bacha lo’. I want to ask something now, Sonu Nigam ji, why would Bhushan ji come to you to save himself from Abu Salem? I want an investigation. Was there a link between Abu Salem and Sonu Nigam? Yes, definitely there was. That’s why Bhushan ji went to him for help. Sonu Nigam himself said in his video that Bhushan ji had come to him for help,” Divya Khosla Kumar said.
Divya Khosla Kumar also said in her video that since Sonu Nigam’s video came out, Bhushan Kumar has been receiving death threats, she has been receiving rape threats, and even her child is being threatened on social media.
