Musician Sona Mohapatra said that she would refuse to ‘open’ for Justin Bieber even if she was paid truckloads.

Actor Sonakshi Sinha, following a heated exchange of words, blocked musician Sona Mohapatra on Twitter and the latter shared a screen shot of the same on her Twitter wall and wrote, “Hahahaha! Not that I’d ever followed this bundle of talent, grace & intelligence.” The altercation is an outcome of the news that Sonakshi will be performing at American popstar Justin Beiber’s concert in Mumbai on May 10. Sona apparently is unhappy about this.

Taking a jibe at the actor, Sona even posted on her Instagram account and wrote, “The equally good news is that Madam ‘Actor’ won’t be the opening act for any Music concert in a hurry, & will stick to the lip-sync dance routines in TV award shows for now.”

This came soon after singer Armaan Malik got embroiled in a war of words with Sonakshi following musician Kailash Kher’s comments that if Sonakshi performs at the Justin Bieber’s May 10 India concert, it won’t send across a good message.

On April 24, Sona had gone on a Twitter rant against the actor, slamming her saying, “Showing no care for true musicians life time of commitment and cutting the line to pursue your entitled ‘dream’ be okay dear Sonakshi? C’mon.”

After alleged reports that Sonakshi will be performing the opening act at the much touted Justin Bieber concert, Sona tweeted, “Such a slap on the face of music, audiences, fans of music, performing artists, live music, musicians & also on India. Integrity be damned.”

Even after Sonakshi released an official statement refuting these reports and clarifying that she’s NOT performing at the said concert, Sona didn’t spare her and tweeted on April 25, “Dear lady, you were condescending to real musicians & singers all through & continue to be with this juvenile ‘face saving’ post now. SAD.” She further a series of tweets wondering why Sonakshi issued an official statement if she was not performing and she could have just let it go with a No.

Stating that “I’d refuse to ‘open’ for Justin Bieber even if I was paid truckloads,” Sona feels that singer Armaan Malik “would have made for the perfect opening act for Bieber—Young, talented & can sing!”

With more and more names joining the raging debate, looks like this musician-actor conflict is not coming to an end anytime soon.
