Social media has emerged as an important tool for celebrities to connect with their fans, update them on their whereabouts, and promote their work. While the actors have a huge fan following, the trolling also goes hand in hand. Not everyone will necessarily like the work of a particular celeb, but sometimes the choice of words makes the whole criticism dirty. Recently singer Tony Kakkar was mercilessly trolled when a social media user said that he would consume poison instead of listening to his songs.
However, Tony urged the user not to listen to his songs as his life was precious. He wrote, ‘You don’t kill. Never listen, 100 Tony Kakkar will come, your life is priceless. (Don’t die, these songs should never be heard. 100 Tony Kakkar will come and go, your life is priceless).’ Tony continued, ‘I wish you could take my age.
Several Twitterati came forward to support the singer and boost his morale. One of them wrote that there is a section of people who listen to his songs but also troll him. Another said that the singer does not force anyone to listen to his songs.
Tony often has to face public anger for his music. His last few projects have not been good with the audience but surprisingly the videos garner millions of views. The singer’s most recent work, in which he came up with his sister Neha Kakkar and rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh for the party number ‘Kaanta Laga’, has also been criticized by many music listeners. However, his music video, – Saath Kya Nibhayenge, starring Sonu Sood and Nidhi Agarwal, was loved by the audience.
Tony rose to fame due to songs including, ‘Sawan Aaya Hai’, ‘Khuda Bhi’, ‘Mohabbat Nasha Hai’, ‘Coca Cola Tu’, ‘Mile Ho Tum’, ‘Dheeme Dheeme’ and others.
