Indian singer Sonu Nigam has decided to extend his stay in Dubai as he believes travelling amid the coronavirus outbreak can put people around him at risk.The singer was in the Himalayas earlier and wanted to come to Mumbai for a concert scheduled for March 6 but it got postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic.
He then decided to head to Dubai to be with his wife and son and has been there since a few weeks.
“I am fortunate that my wife and my son are in Dubai. My son studies here and I keep travelling here a lot, Dubai is like my second base. But my father, sister are alone in India. I wanted to come back to India and be at my father’s side but I realized that if I do that, I’ll be exposing him to the risk of me carrying this virus, who knows the extent of the danger,” Sonu told PTI.
The 46-year-old singer said everybody is taking precautions and he wants to ensure that the health of those around him isn’t at risk.
In Dubai, the singer said the family is taking extreme precautions.
“We all are being safe, staying indoors, not gathering with many people.”Sonu said he will be conducting a live music concert on his social media on Sunday.
