The Facts of the Matter

Locals of different regions are often possessive about their own culture. When a performer or artist comes in their region, they are often subjected to demands of locals to indulge in art work that come from their own culture. However, what happens when an artist continues to perform on his own tune, and doesn’t meet the demands raised?

Recently, popular Indian singer Kailash Kher was subjected to an attack when he was on stage in Hampi. The 49-year-old singer and the lead singer of his band Kailasa was performing on the closing night of the prestigious Hampi Utsav when he was attacked for reportedly not singing a Kannada song on the stage. The attack was caught on cam, visuals of which are going viral.

What Does the Video Show

The video of the attack shows Kailash Kher singing ‘Tu Jaane Na’ on the stage. Out of nowhere, a half-drunk water bottle is flung at him which misses him by inches. Shockingly enough, the singer remains focused on having a good time, and paid no attention to the mischief done by the miscreants. As Kailash continues to sing without paying attention to the attack, a person behind the stage rushes in and takes away the bottle.
