Sonu Nigam is not the only celebrity to be banned by an Indian television channel; list of others
Zee Network recently banned singer Sonu Nigam after he raised his voice in support of AAP leader Kumar Vishwas. The channel broadcasted a video in which it quoted AAP leader saying 'Latak Gaya' when farmer Gajendra Singh committed suicide. The incident happened in AAP organized rally in support of farmers and Gajendra Singh killed himself there.

Interestingly after the ban, singer rather feeling offended made a positive move and tweeted, "I am far from politics but I feel hat truth should come out for the sake of my poet friend Kumar Vishwas."

However, this is not the first time when media constraint itself from being in contact or interact with selective people. Earlier, many celebs like Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Shraddha Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan witness the same. Here is the list of people who were banned by India media

Amitabh Bachchan

This famous personality was also once engulfed in this 'ban-chain'. He is a regular blogger and in one of his blog he revealed that there was a time when he was banned by a media. Press evidently informed by sources that he was the one who came up with a idea of banning press or media. Though he was initially eulogized by the media for his contribution in industry but soon this news soared everything. Media banned itself from publishing or taking his interviews, doing any story which related to him or his movie and even proscribed itself from clicking his picture even when he was giving blockbluster hits.

Shraddha Kapoor

Shakti Kapoor's daughter and actor Shraddha Kapoor gained popularity after her brilliant and mesmerizing performance in Aashiqui 2. Though she basked glory from her movies but there was a time when media proscribed itself from clicking her pictures or doing anything related to her. She made media to wait for two long hours and things worsen when she refused media to pose for a picture. The ban carried forward by media for long. Seems like media does not entertain anyone's tantrum at all.

Salman Khan

His 'I give a damn attitude' tangled him with the same chain. Adore by everyone for his contribution in reel and real life, Salman Khan onced banned by media. There was a time when Salman was banned by photographers' union when his security personnel misbehaved with one of photographer. In 2014, union planned to boycott the actor till 25th July and coincidentally it was an releasing date of his movie Kick. It is reported that even his refusal to pose for a photograph soared things deeply.

Saif Ali Khan

Actor Saif Ali Khan and his wife Kareena Kapoor also witness the same. Their tardiness to reach at a venu fumed media like anything. In 2010, they were invited to endorse shoe brand, where they were suppose to address media too. Whilst media was there on time but Saif and Kareena failed to reach there. After couple of hours media personnel walked out of venue after which the couple entered. Although later couple apologized for the delay as they were stuck in traffic but this reason was not enough to pacify the wrath of press. And media boycotted the pair for a long time.
