New Delhi [India], Apr 24 (ANI): Sonakshi Sinha might be super excited about her performance at pop star Justin Bieber's maiden concert in India, but the news hasn't gone down well with singers Kailash Kher and Armaan Malik. Armaan, on Monday, put a tweet out, which implied that actors should stick to acting and singers to singing. "Agree with @Kailashkher sir! Actors are actors & singers are singers. Leave the stage & mic to us, that's our playground not yours," he tweeted. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Agree with <a href="https://twitter.com/Kailashkher">@Kailashkher</a> sir!
