After Massive Backlash, Punjabi-Canadian Singer Shubh India Tour is Canceled; Bookmyshow Will Refund Tickets

After receiving calls to boycott the app for hosting a musician who is supposedly a Khalistani sympathizer, BookMyShow on Wednesday canceled the India tour of Punjabi-Canadian singer Shubhneet Singh. BookMyShow has promised a full refund of ticket prices within 7-10 days in a post on X (formerly known as Twitter).

The Indian leg of singer Shubhneet Singh’s Still Rollin tour has been postponed. Therefore, BookMyShow has begun fully refunding the ticket price for any customers who have made a purchase for this event. Within 7-10 business days, the customer’s original method of payment will be credited with the refund.

Many people are tweeting with the hashtag #UninstallBookMyShow

Earlier in the day, a #UninstallBookMyShow was trending on X, with some users claiming that Shubh, the singer’s stage name, is a ‘Khalistani’ who backs separatist leaders.
