New Delhi, (PTI): Rapper Honey Singh, who was forced to cancel his scheduled New Year’s Eve show following protests in the backdrop of gangrape incident, on Tuesday sought to wash his hands off the controversy triggered by offensive lyrics in some of his songs.

Singh, 28, who has sung for several Bollywood movies, said he had not authored the lyrics that are being attributed to him.

The lyrics have been termed offensive towards women by activists, who have started an online campaign against Singh.

An FIR has also been lodged against the rapper in Lucknow.

When contacted Singh’s manager Anup Kumar claimed that the Gurgaon show was cancelled not because of the protests but in solidarity with the Delhi gangrape victim.

“We did not cancel the show because of this petition and FIR. We cancelled it in the wake of Delhi gangrape issue.

This is not the first concert we are cancelling in Delhi after that horrific incident. We had also cancelled our much publicised December 25 event,” Kumar told PTI.

Bristol Hotel, however, disputed Singh’s version, saying it was the management and not Singh, who decided to cancel the performance.

The FIR against Singh was lodged by Gomti Nagar police on the complaint of IPS officerAmitabh Thakur, police sources said in Lucknow. The FIR was registered under sections 292, 293 and 294 of the IPC that are related to obscenity offences.
