about the video

Carnatic singer TM Krishna’s show was cancelled in New Delhi which was to be organised by AAI Airport Authority of India (AAI). The concert was called off allegedly after he faced flack on Twitter by right wing users. On this, TM Krishna said, “Words like urban Naxal, presstitute, anti-Indian are created by people who don’t know what democracy is.”

Krishna was scheduled to perform during the two-day ‘Dance and Music in the Park’ festival at Nehru Park in Chanakyapuri on November 17 and 18. The event, organised jointly by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) and cultural body SPIC-MACAY, was postponed allegedly after trolls targeted the singer, who has been critical of the government. AAI had cited ‘some urgent engagement’ while announcing postponement of the event on Wednesday.
