# On June 27, 2007, Himesh Reshammiya visited the shrine of Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti, disguised in a burqa, reportedly to avoid crowd of fans. Some people objected to this, and some even felt that it was a publicity stunt for his forthcoming film. Later, Reshammiya issued an apology for “offending religious sentiments”.
# Himesh Reshammiya initially defended himself saying that his voice is not nasal, but “high-pitched singing”. Later, in an interview with The Times of India, he said “I accept I’m a nasal singer.”
# In November 2006, Himesh Reshammiya remarked that Mukesh, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and R D Burman had a nasal style of singing but none of the artists “ever gave the same number of hits in a year”.
