The concert was about to happen on February 18, at the city of joy’s Eco Park. Sources claimed that actor Salman Khan is about to deliver a show at the same venue on January 20. Meanwhile, BJP’s Amit Malviya criticized the Mamta-led government for doing this purposely.

In the recent past, Arijit Singh sang ‘Rang de tu mohe gerua’, at the inauguration of the Kolkata International Film Festival, in front of chief minister Mamata Banerjee and as per Malviya’s accusation, Bengal CM was not comfortable with the song. 

However, WB Minister and Kolkata Mayor Firhad Hakim said that the convention centre, which is just across from Eco Park (the location of Arijit Singh’s concert), will host the celebration honouring India’s G-20 leadership. He added that there will probably be several foreign dignitaries present at the event.

Additionally, the minister went on to say, “Arijit Singh’s concert would have drawn sizable crowds, which would have been challenging to manage. The police believed that holding such a large gathering may lead to law and order issues.”

Fans were disheartened by the news as they missed a chance to witness the singer in real life. Singh enjoys a worldwide fandom, and the crowd enjoys the live concerts of the singer.

As per the Bengal government, the primary reason behind the cancellation of the show is due to the date clash of the concert with a G-20 event that is about to take place at a venue just opposite Eco Park.
