New Delhi: Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam voluntarily tonsured his head on Wednesday last week in response to a fatwa issued against him by a cleric from West Bengal.The 43-year-old vocalist took this step after he stirred up a controversy by posting about 'forced religiousness' and speaking against the use of loudspeakers atop mosques, temples and gurudwaras for religious purposes.
But, did you guys know that the 'Love in Nepal' actor had predicted that his hair would make a loud statement someday! Don't be shocked, you read that right. Nigam, in 2010, posted on Twitter that whatever he does with his hair is to wake up the people. He had also stated that people will realise it later.
"One day u'll all know, whtever I do wth my hair, is 2 wake up ppl from a slumber," read Nigam's old tweet.

Wow! Now, this is pretty interesting.
For the unversed, the 'Kal Ho Na Ho' singer took the nation by storm after posting the 'forced religiousness' tweet on April 17.
However, after being trolled mercilessly for his Twitter rant, the singer spoke about the issue, saying, 'When I am talking about Loudspeakers, I did mention Temples and Gurudwaras too'.
His controversial tweets evoked a mixed response on the Internet.
