In a series of tweets, the actor clarified that they watched the concert 'peacefully.' He writes, "My daughters and I watched the whole concert peacefully. Went home peacefully. To make up ur own stories is pathetic so please do clarify." Justin Bieber performed in Mumbai as part of his Purpose Tour.
This was his maiden concert in India.

Watch Arjun Rampal at the concert venue:
Beliebers (as Justin Bieber fans call themselves), had queued up at the venue right in the morning. Celebrities like Alia Bhatt, Sridevi, Raveena Tandon, Sonali Bendre, Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover, also attended the concert. However, most of them were miffed with the arrangements. While Bipasha and Karan reportedly left the venue due to VIP passes issue
, Sonali Bendre called it a 'waste of time.'
Meanwhile, Beliebers were also furious to know that the pop icon's performance was lip-synced. Justin Bieber only sang four songs live and 18 of them were lip-synced
. Filmmaker Anurag Basu, who watched the concert with his daughter, told news agency PTI, "I would have been happy if he would have sung all songs live. He only sang four songs live. An artist of his calibre should sing live. He was not prepared."
