In midst of the controversy created by Sonu Nigam over morning Azaan, film-maker and actress Pooja Bhatt has come out in favour of the morning prayer call and the sound of church bells.
The actress took to Twitter to post a tweet on the ongoing topic, showing she has no chill over anti-religion rants.
“I wake each morning to the sound of church bells and the Azaan in a quiet by-lane of Bandra. I light an aggarbatti and salute the spirit of India,” she posted.
Bollywood singer Sonu Nigham managed to land himself another controversy on Monday after tweeting about “forced religiousness in India”.
The singer, who is known for singing love songs, ranted about having to wake up to the sound of Azaan in the morning in a series of tweets.

This is not the first time the topic of Azaan has been picked up by celebrities in India. Earlier, Bollywood powerhouse performer Priyanka Chopra said that she finds the sound of Azaan mesmerising.
