He’s called the hit-machine from Punjabi. The new Punjabi pop feeling is Guru Randhawa. He’s provided several hits from Suit Karda to Ban Ja Tu Meri Rani. The audience goes into a tizzy every time he performs. But things didn’t go down too well this time when he played.
Guru Randhawa was so badly assaulted by an unknown person during a live performance at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theater that he got four stitches near the eyebrow. He has now returned to India and vowed never to conduct again in Canada.
“Guru is back in India with four stitches on his correct eyebrow and a mega-successful USA / Canada tour. The event occurred in Vancouver on July 28, when Guru told a Punjabi man not to come to the stage while he was playing for the crowd. That person was attempting to come to the stage again and again, and then he began fighting backstage with everyone. He was known to Surinder Sanghera, the local promoter, who sent him away during the show, “read the article.
“But when Guru completed the show and left the stage, that Punjabi guy came and struck him hard with a punch on his face, because of which Guru began bleeding from his forehead above his eyebrow on the spot and went back to the stage and showed it to the crowd,” the article added.
“He said he would never perform for the remainder of his life in Canada. Guru said his Guru Nanak Devji had saved him and prayed to Waheguru to give him a good sense of knowing what to do and what not to do.”
Eyewitnesses at the concert said that even while the singer was performing on stage, the assailant, who is still to be identified, behaved in a rowdy manner.
