Well, Sonu took the challenge head on, and shaves his head. The popular singer invited popular celebrity hairstylist Aalim to shave the hair off his head. He also invited the media for a press conference before he went bald.

Earlier, the Bollywood singer challenged the Maulavi by asking him to keep Rs 10 lakhs ready as he will shave his head. “Today at 2pm Aalim will come to my place, and shave my head. Keep your 10 lakhs ready Maulavi,” he tweeted. Sonu has also invited press at 2 pm. “And Press is welcome to participate at 2pm,” he wrote on micro-blogging site.

The Maulavi was quoted by DNA as saying: “If anyone can shave his hair, put a garland of old torn shoes around his neck and tour him around the country, I personally announce an award of Rs 10 lakh for that person”.

During the press conference, Sonu said that like others, he also has right to opinions. Reaffirming his stance, Sonu said, “I am against any kind of noise in the name of festivities. Loudspeakers are not religious necessities”. “I didn’t mean to disrespect anyone, I was talking about a social issue not a religious one,” he said.

He also added that he is shaving his hair off his head but it is not some agitation, and should not be presented in that way. “It’s not a challenge. It is to tell you that one who is cutting my hair is a Muslim. I am sitting voluntarily and asking my Muslim brother to shave my hair off of my head.” he said.
