Singers Toshi and Sharib change tunes, thank Virat for sharing the video

So, a video of a three-year-old girl being scolded and forced by her mother to study went viral as cricketers like Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh shared it on their social media advocating child assault. Later, it was discovered that the little girl is the niece of singer Toshi Sabri. So, on Tuesday, the singer defended the video in an interview with HT by saying, “Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan don’t know about us. Hamare bachche ke bare mein humein pata hai naah ki hamara bacha kaisa hai! Uska nature hai waisa… Agle hi pal woh khelne chali jaati hai. Agar aap usko chod do toh woh kahengi main mazzak kar rahi thi. Uske nature ki wajah se chod denge toh woh padhai bhi nahi kar paayengi. (We know about our child better. Haya’s nature is such that after being scolded, the next minute she runs off to play. But, because of her nature if we don’t push her, she won’t study.)” (Also Read: Singer Toshi defends the video of his niece shared by Virat Kohli)

He had further said, “Ek maa ki mamta hai, judgment nahi kar sakte hain. Jisne usko 9 months kokh mein rakha hai. Ab agar bachche zidd karenge toh unko padana likhana chod dein kya? Bachon ko paalna asaan nahi hota. (One can’t judge a mother’s love for the child by seeing a short video. If children throw tantrums, then should we stop teaching them? It’s not easy to raise children). I’m married and have a son. I know how difficult it is to raise a child. Parents have to do double duty by managing both — the children and the household at the same time.”

Now, the singer along with his singer-brother Sharib, has posted a video on their Facebook page and the strange part is that the duo are contradicting their own statements as they start off by saying that they would firstly like to thank Virat Kohli and the other cricketers who shared the video of their little three-year-old niece. They say that the video was made to show her father and to them. They further requested the matter to be ended as whenever she plays in the park now, people rush over to her to get a selfie with her. So, they don’t want this to happen to her. Hence, they want this matter to be closed.
