On 29 July, Shubh announced the news of his upcoming world tour ‘Still Rollin’ through an Instagram post.
His tour is scheduled to begin from Bangalore, India on 23 September. The schedule for his India tour was shared by him on his Instagram story.
However, recently during an unfortunate series of events, a video went viral in which the workers of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha were allegedly seen removing and tearing down the posters of Shubh in Mumbai.

They also allege that Shubh posted a distorted map of India on 22 March through an Instagram story which raged the protest.
The BJYM president Tajinder Singh Tiwana said “There is no space for Khalistanis who are the enemy of integrity and unity of India. We won’t let Canadian singer Shubh perform on the auspicious land of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Mumbai…If no proper action is taken then the organizers will have to face the revolt”.
He further added “We have given a memorandum to the organizers and Mumbai police to cancel the program peacefully and if appropriate action is not taken, we will protest. Through the memorandum, we have demanded the registration of an FIR against rapper Shubh”.
As per Tiwana, Shubh has over 1 million followers on Instagram including the youth from India, and by allegedly posting a distorted map, he has disrespected the integrity of our country.
He also stated that “Shubh posted a map of India without Jammu and Kashmir, and Punjab on his Instagram story with the heading title “Pray for Punjab.”
