While, actor Anupam Kher also appreciated Nigam’s daring move of shaving his head and accepting maulvi’s challenge. 

Anupam was so impressed with Nigam’s bold step that he couldn’t stop himself from saying, ‘bande mei dum hai..jai ho Sonu Nigam’.

It is worthy to mention here that, soon after Nigam’s remark against use of loudspeakers in mosques and temples, a maulvi from West Bengal issued a Fatwa against him and even offered a reward of Rs 10 lakh to the person who dare to shave Nigam’s head. 

Interestingly, accepting maulvi’s challenge, Nigam shaved off his hair and even organised a press meet to inform the world about it.

Notably, all this incident started when Nigam was woken up by the sound of Azaan on Monday. He was so irritated by the sound that he wrote I am not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by Azaan. He even said when will this forced religiousness stop in India?
