Sonu Nigam has been taking over the headlines since last few days after he triggered a debate by tagging Azaan as “forced religiousness.” Thanks to Sonu Nigam’s Azaan remark, an old video of Priyanka Chopra is now doing the rounds of the Internet where the actress can be seen praising Azaan.

The short video is from a promotional event from Bhopal for her film Jai Gangajal, where PeeCeecan be seen saying all good things about the Azaan. In the video, she can be quoted as saying, “If we wrap up the shoot early, I always wait for the Azaan in the evening and prefer sitting on the terrace during the sunset. It is very soothing and relaxing to hear the Azaan and luckily I get to hear it from six nearby mosques.”

Further describing her surreal experience, the Bollywood star said, “I really like those 5 minutes. It’s a strange, peaceful time to hear Azaanon the microphone (loudspeaker). It’s my favourite time of the day.” After the video got leaked, Twitterati started trolling Sonu Nigam and even suggested that he learn something from our Desi Girl.

In recent events, Sonu Nigam shaved his head at a press conference after challenged by a Mauli who was offended by Sonu's Azaan comment.  During the press conference, he told the media, "I only spoke against the use of loudspeakers. Everybody has a right to his opinion. I have the right to have an opinion and it should not be misconstrued. Loudspeakers are not a necessity; they are not a part of any religion.”

The controversial tweets of the renowned Bollywood singer evoked a mixed response on the Internet.

there is enough negativity and noise pollution in the wold without pointing fingers at a religious practice. In bad taste Sonu...

stay blessed Peecee

Sonu could have talked about loudspeakers without singling out a religion. Priyanka said this years ago, she's always been respectful to all religions. good on her!

controversial issue..... no comments

I agree. its TOTALLY peaceful.. even incorporate my POOJA with azan. Its so nice! :)

Sham ko fine but i do NOT want to be waken up with blast at 5am for anything. No thanks.

i hope your entire family waken up with blast one day .

Spoken like a true muzzie

The fact that a person can hear azaan from 6 different mosques at any time is in itself an alarming fact!! why so many when these are for the minority? read between the lines people.

Of course she said that - She was looking to be a certain Mrs Khan at that time, so of course embracing everything else that comes with the last name...BS

wow. pecce you are amazing. thank u,

soo cute- love her

Bravo priyanka god bless u

Ofcourse she likes it she's sleeping with sharing Khan Sonu never spoke against azaan he's right that it disturbs people at 5 in the morning I'm sure madam priyanka would not want to be bothered at 5 in the morning it takes a lot off guts to say what Sonu said use your common sense people

It was Shakuntela again. She tweets, retweets and posts this vid everywhere since nearly twelve hours. She´s so obsessed.

everything about Priyanka goes viral these days.

true! it's pretty amazing!

LOL, seems you don`t understand this comment ;-)

In the middle of the city where I once stayed there was a mosque and its call was over a powerful loudspeaker and just like she described, a peace would end the day and everyone loved it so, all faiths, can never forget the sky, the sound and the peace.

She is right. Anywhere in the world you hear, you feel peace. Love you, Priyanka.
