The last confrontation I had was after I did a photoshoot after winning the VGMA award to thank the fans and I had a jacket on with nothing underneath just chains on. I had my Imam confront my brother that I shouldn’t do something like that. So Islam wise, I believe it’s very strict to some extent”
