Omar Abdullah, Adnan Sami In Twitter Spat Over Srinagar Concert

Published on 9 October, 2017 at 5:24 pm By

Former Jammu & Kashmir chief minister, Omar Abdullah and Bollywood singer Adnan Sami had an ugly face-off on Twitter over the latter’s concert at the Dal Lake in Srinagar on Saturday.

The spat started when the former chief minister mocked the establishment as well as the singer by pinpointing at the empty seats at the concert despite a late start.

And what followed thereafter was simply a vicious bombardment of brickbats from both the sides.

And with this, the spat even turned uglier:

Sami was recently in Srinagar for Rhythm in Peace concert that took place at the Sher-e-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC) lawns. He started the program with his famous Bollywood song ‘Tu Sirf Mera Mehboob’ from the 2001 film ‘Ajnabee’.

While thanking the audience for such a wonderful welcome in the city, Sami also spoke about his “deep connection” with the valley:

Not only because my mother is from Jammu but I learned Hindustani classical from santoor maestro Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, who hails from Jammu as well. It was because of him that I could show the world that Hindustani classical can be played on piano as well.

Organized by Jammu & Kashmir tourism department, the concert was graced by Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju along with several other state ministers and other government officials.
