Sonu Nigam to retire from singing?

Here's what your favourite Bollywood celebrities are tweeting.

The music of Shekhar Suman's upcoming film Heartless may not release.

Singer Sonu Nigam has apparently refused to sign a contract with music company T-series, which will deprive him of royalty.

Justifying his decision, Sonu tweeted: ‘All of us used to sign until we were made aware about the illegality of the contracts. If I show u a sample of the contract they make composers, lyrics writers and singers sign, you'll faint. We can all end up in the jail in the future. They r lucky that the press hasn't gotten into the depth of the matter. It's feudal, humiliating and illegal, and can only end up in tedious and deliberate court cases for nuisance value. Who wants to get into it?’

Sonu is so upset by the incident that he’s contemplating retirement. ‘I'd rather sit at home and do Yoga than get into this mess. Shekhar ji is a good man, and understands our compulsions. I've asked him to get my voice dubbed by anyone who agrees to sign this... I'm sure the music will speak for itself. So actually I think it is time for me to announce my retirement from film music,’ he added.
