Daler Mehndi apparently received the news of his brother, Mika Singh, too late to get in touch with his pop singer brother. Arrested on alleged harassment charges in Dubai, the Aankh Maare fame singer was released on Thursday only to be produced before a local court on Friday.
While Mika was in custody, the Tunak Tunak Tun fame singer, Daler Mehndi, gave his statement to a news portal. “I have not been able to talk to him. I also got to know about it recently. Mika had gone for a big show in Dubai. The girl in the question actually works with Mika in his group from the last 3-4 years. Her mom is always with her and I don’t think there must have been something like this. I don’t understand what has happened. I only had this information and I hope things work well for Mika. I am sure things will work in favour of him” he told the news portal, Pinkvilla.
Mika was reportedly picked up by the UAE police from a bar in Bur Dubai around 3 am after a 17 year old Brazilian model filed a case against him at the Muraqqabaat police station. The Indian singer was taken to Abu Dhabi jail after the girl accused him of sending ‘indecent photos’ to her along with promising her a role in a Bollywood movie. Later, Mika was released and has his hearing today at an Emirates’ local court.
Mika was in Dubai to perform at a Bollywood event and had taken to Instagram, a few days back, to share a video from the city. He captioned it, “Hey #Dubai.. I’m in your city and it’s the 1st time I’m here to attend the most popular awards the #masalaawards ..See you tonight!”
The singer rose to fame with his first single, ‘Sawan mein lag gayi aag’ and has given several hit songs since then, for biggest stars of the film fraternity. He has, however, been in controversies many times previously. He was dragged to court for forcibly kissing Rakhi Sawant in 2006 during his birthday bash, had a hit and run case levied upon him where he was accused of hitting an autorickshaw and leaving the spot irresponsibly. At a concert in Delhi, he was accused of slapping a doctor who hence, suffered an internal injury in his left ear.
