Mumbai: Bollywood's one of the finest singers Sonu Nigam apparently hates to stay away from controversies. His recent comment made at a media summit that 'it would be better if I was from Pakistan' is indigestible to many.

Singer, however, said that his comment was taken out of context. Clarifying further, he said that he wishes he was from pakistan so he would get more offers from India. In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Sonu said journalists missed the "real content" and his statement was "reduced" to "sensational" headlines.

He said, "Sometimes in an attempt to make headlines catchy and sensational, some journalists miss the real content. Yesterday's AajTak Summit happened so amazing, and look what have they reduced it to..."

Sonu wrote on Facebook, "My point about being better off being born in Pakistan was about the music companies in India asking Indian singers to pay 40-50 per cent of their concerts remunerations to them, and only then they'll work with those artistes... But they don't ask the same from the singers from abroad, namely Pakistan. This was the important point I made... And these guys... changed it to 'I would have been better off born in Pakistan I'd have work come my way.' What do I say? Pathetic."

Singer has been hit hard from the people on various social networks. Sonu was in the new recently when he objected the use of speakers at religious places.
