Singer Armaan Malik clarifies identity confusion with Bigg Boss OTT 3 contestant: ‘I have no connection to this individual’

Singer Armaan Malik took to X (formerly Twitter) to address a persistent issue of mistaken identity, as fans continue to confuse him with a Bigg Boss OTT 3 contestant and YouTuber who shares the same name. In a statement, Malik expressed that the mix-up is damaging his reputation and asked fans to stop tagging him in posts related to the reality show contestant.

"Hi everyone. I've been trying to overlook an issue for a while now, but it seems to be getting out of hand at this point and I have to address it. A YouTube creator, earlier known as Sandeep, later changed his name to Armaan Malik and is currently on Bigg Boss OTT Season 3. This is causing a lot of confusion, with many people mistakenly tagging me and assuming we are the same person,” the singer wrote on X.

Armaan clarified that he has no connection to the YouTuber and does not endorse him or his lifestyle. He shared how the ongoing confusion is misleading his supporters and negatively affecting his reputation. "While I can't stop someone from changing their name and taking up the same as mine, I do request my own community to help me overcome this,” he added.

The singer concluded his post by urging, “Please stop tagging me in posts about anything related to him.”

Since posting, Armaan's message has garnered over 430,000 views and more than 6,700 likes, prompting a range of responses from fans. One user admitted to initially making the same mistake, saying, “I was like ‘When did Armaan Malik marry two women’. Later, found out it was some other guy." Another user appreciated the clarification, stating, “This was a much needed clarification.”

In addition to being a playback singer, Armaan is also a music producer known for his soul-stirring songs. He typically maintains a low profile, occasionally posting on social media. Conversely, the other Armaan Malik is a YouTuber with a large following, often featuring his two wives, Payal and Kritika, in his videos.

The situation highlights the importance of distinguishing between public figures who share similar names, ensuring that each individual's identity and reputation remain intact.
