Singer and television host Aditya Narayan has found himself embroiled in controversy after a video surfaced showing him allegedly hitting a fan’s phone and tossing it away during his concert in Bhilai, Chhattisgarh. The incident, captured on video and widely circulated on social media platforms, has sparked outrage among fans and netizens alike.
In the footage, Narayan is seen performing the song “Aaj Ki Raat” from the 2006 film “Don” when he suddenly pauses and directs his attention towards a fan in the audience. He proceeds to grab the person’s phone from their hand, and when unable to do so, reportedly strikes their hand before throwing the phone away from the crowd.
Dressed casually in a T-shirt, denim jacket, and pants, Narayan continues his performance despite the interruption. The video was shared on Instagram by user DforDurg, prompting a flurry of reactions from viewers.
Reacting to the incident, social media users expressed disappointment and criticism towards Narayan’s actions. Some commented on the importance of respecting fans, while others questioned his behavior, labeling it as arrogant and disrespectful.
One comment reflected on the incident, stating, “If fans are not there then the artist is not there. He is making his downfall.” Another user speculated about the altercation, suggesting, “So, what happened was, this fan wanted to call Aditya Narayan. But somehow, he accidentally bumped into Aditya’s leg with his phone. So, Aditya got kinda upset and smacked the guy’s hand away and then tossed his phone.”
However, amidst the backlash, some users defended Narayan, suggesting there may be more to the story than what is portrayed in the video. One Instagram user urged caution, stating, “There’s always more than one side to a story. Be careful about what you are shown.”
Following the controversy, Narayan was spotted at the Delhi airport on Monday, seemingly unfazed by the incident. Dressed casually in a blue hoodie and maroon pants, he smiled in response to paparazzi and graciously acknowledged a fan’s rendition of “Chand Chupa Badal Mein,” originally sung by his father, Udit Narayan.
As the video continues to circulate and discussions surrounding the incident persist, Aditya Narayan’s actions have reignited conversations about the relationship between celebrities and their fans, underscoring the importance of mutual respect and professionalism in the entertainment industry.
