Punjabi singer Guru Randhawa, who was on a US/Canada concert tour, announced his return to India with an Instagram post, confirming he “is home now, feeling safe” and added that he has four stitches on his forehead after he was attacked during a show in Vancouver, Canada, by a member of the audience. The singer’s team wrote a lengthy note on Instagram, along with a photo of a bruised Guru Randhawa, to share details of the unexpected fiasco in Canada: “Guru is back in India with four stitches on his right eyebrow and mega successful USA/Canada tour. The incident happened on July 28 in Vancouver when Guru told one Punjabi man not to come on stage while he was performing for the audience.”
“That man was trying to come on stage again and again and then he started fighting with everyone backstage. He was known to the local promoter Surinder Sanghera who sent him away during the show. But at the end when Guru finished the show and was leaving the stage, that Punjabi man came and hit him hard on his face with a punch, because of which Guru started bleeding on the spot from his forehead above eyebrow and went back to stage and showed it to the audience,” the Instagram post added.
In the note, Guru Randhawa’s team also confirmed that he won’t have concerts in Canada any more: “Guru is home now feeling safe in India. And he said he won’t ever perform in Canada for the rest of his life. Guru said, his Guru Nanak Dev ji has saved him and prayed to Waheguru to give that man a good sense of understanding what to do and what not to. Your love and support is all we need always.”
