Once his father told me that he asked him to write songs about another topic. But Sidhu Musewala said that when he tried to write a song about his mother, no one listened. Every time someone said something about him, he would write a song to get back at him. This was to the liking of his followers. His mind worked that way.” Ajay Devgan’s tears were shed over the death of Sidhu Musewala, he said this with moist eyes.

Speaking about Musewala’s murder, Gurdas Maan said: “It is very sad. A legend is gone. I met his parents, it is quite difficult to see what condition they are in.
