Guwahati: Singing sensation and Assam’s heartthrob Zubeen Garg once again landed in a controversy for allegedly saying he would go into the house and shoot if anyone fails to watch Assamese movies.
While interacting with the crowd at a Bihu function in Jhanji under Sivasagar district on Wednesday night, the singer said, “I will keep making Assamese movies, but everyone must go and watch it, or else I will enter your house and shoot you.”
The statement might seem to be a little impertinent, but, there is nothing to worry about as he was just joking!
Yes, you heard it right, he was just joking.
As we all know singer Zubeen Garg’s sense of humour, amiable, outspoken nature attract everyone, however, his recent remarks regarding the overgrowing market of South Indian movies have been making rounds on social media.
Earlier, in the month of April, singer Zubeen Garg at a function said that people in Assam should watch and promote Assamese films instead of watching “nonsense” dubbed South Indian movies.
Also, criticizing a few South Indian movies like KGF and RRR, Garg said that these movies make no sense.
He questioned the crowd if it was possible for one to just throw away a motorcycle with bare hands or if it was possible for a person to simply kick a truck and it would fly away?
“No that is not possible and it is simply non-sense”, he added.
He added, “You should stop those dubbed movies and start watching Assamese films. We are not fools to watch those.”
It may be mentioned that Zubeen Garg is all set to star in Assam/United Kingdom action film ‘Sikaar’.
The new bilingual feature film produced under the banner of Big Films Media along with Dercative Studios LLP (India) will begin shooting across both Assam and London.
Shows-topping actor/musician Zubeen Garg will be spearheading the cast as a moralistic tea garden worker who traverses halfway across the world to London to extract retribution against those who wronged him.
Zubeen will be supported by Siddharth Sharma and Dhyani Mohan.
Music and singing will be done by Zubeen Garg. Garima Garg will join hands as a costume designer.
The bilingual feature will be directed by renowned, technically proficient director Debankar Borgohain.
The film will act as a showcase for the beauty of the Assam landscape, before pitting Garg against foes in the UK
