Rahul Sipligunj is a playback singer in Tollywood and also does music albums. He has several hit numbers to his credit in films like Rangasthalam and Dammu. But, he only got popular after his entry in Telugu Big Boos house during its third season. Rahul is known for being a straight forward guy not only in the house but also outside. This attitude has impressed the television audience and he went on to win the ‘Bigg Boss’ title with the viewers’ support and voting.

But controversies are also following the singer. Recently, his brawl in the pub with TRS MLA’s brother became a sensation in Telugu states. Rahul was attacked with beer bottles by the politician’s brother. This issue went up to the police and both ended up filing cases against each other. However, people like Prakash Raj and VinayBhasker mediated to settle down the issue. Sources say that the said MLA also apologized to the singer. But the case is still there and Rahul feels that it will continue once the lockdown is lifted.

Meanwhile, the playback singer shared the incident that happened with his father over the pub brawl. Rahul revealed that he stayed back in the hotel instead of going home that night with the fear that his parents would panic by seeing the injuries. He said that his father came down to the hotel room the next morning and slapped him. He also added that his father who was so upset over the issue has felt that he should not have let them hit him when he didn’t do a mistake.

Rahul shares a very close relationship with his father. In fact, he gave all the support to Sipligunj to become a singer from a very young age. His father used to encourage Rahul to sing at the functions in the old city where they live and also in front of his friends. Last month he shared a romantic musical video featuring Telugu Bigg Boss-2 fame NandiniRai and him. We can see that both of them blushing after seeing their smooch in this old video which they watched together during the lockdown.
