Honey Singh and Shalini Talwar

Just recently, in 2021, Shalini filed a domestic violence case against the rapper Honey. She sought an amount of Rs20 for compensation.
Shalini mentioned in her plea that she was physically abused by Honey, and he allegedly cheated on her.
Honey Singh broke his silence and said he was facing this false accusation and malicious allegations against him.
In 2012, after the gang-rape case in Delhi, the lyrics to some of his songs, which depict violence against women and rape positively, created controversy.
Singh’s song “Party All Night” was deleted from Akshay Kumar’s movie Boss due to protests. Producers had to submit a petition to Delhi High Court claiming they had “muted” an alleged vulgar word in Singh’s song during an outdoor shoot.
His work was said to be very vulgar and misogynist, which looks like it promotes violence against women and has a bad influence on youth.
