Other similar incidents in the past

- In December 2022, a Bhajan performance by Gujarati folk singer Kirtidan Gadhvi in Navsari had led to a somewhat similar incident. Cash around Rs. 40-50 Lakh rupees were showered by hundreds of attendees during the event, that was organised by Swami Vivekananda Eye Temple Trust to raise money for a new eye hospital.

The attendees had showered the singers with notes ranging from Rs 10 to as high as 500. The collection was around Rs. 50 Lakh, Gadhvi had estimated at the time.

- A similar incident, involving Gadhvi had occurred in 2015, when a local Bharatiya Janata Party leader from Vadodara had showered a bucket full of cash, literally, on the singer at a function. The leader was Vadodara’s then BJP President Satish Patel. He was walking up from behind Kirtidan Gadhvi and showering a bucket full of cash on him.

- 2019 also was witness to a incident similar to these. A viral video, had then shown cash being showered on a singer during a bhajan event. This has led to a debate on social media, as netizens wondered if the programme was a religious event or a dance club. Later, reports had come out that suggested that the money collected was donated to Non-Governmental Organisations.
