Taking to his Instagram, the Badtameez Dil singer dropped the video as he shared the details about the tragic incident. He shared the drone hit his head and bruised his fingers.
“The drone fans, they hit and bruised the back of my head a little bit. Two of my fingers got completely bruised. But that’s all fine. I think I am going to recover from this much faster,” the singer said.

The singer also urged all fellow artistes to add a clause in their contracts asking event organisers to rope in professional drone operators. He said, “I just want to express three things. All artistes should make sure they have a clause that the drone cannot come close to them while they are performing as their movement cannot be coordinated. You need a person with you who is specifically working on drones.”
Adding to this, he requested, “Please all colleges, companies, show or event organisers, get a certified drone operator because it’s very dangerous. The person should be certified to operate a drone. We are artistes. We are just singing on stage. We are not Vijay or Ajay or Salman Khan or Prabhas or some action hero. You don’t have to do all these stunts. Just do a regular show. We just want to look nice. The drones shouldn’t come so close to artistes during a live performance.”
