After so much experience and winning so many awards, he is no longer an amateur taking any work that comes his way, but he has grown out of the silly songs with weird lyrics and devastating music.

He is still working actively and is always grateful for everything. Though he has no big ambitions left, he does not hesitate to keep improving himself.

He is a big fan of Rafi sahab and calls Shahrukh to be one of the best actors that he has sung for.

We have a game dedicated to him. Hopefully, all of you Sonu Nigam fans and Gaana Pehchaana lovers will enjoy playing it.

Music: Nadeem- Shravan

Lyrics: Anand Bakshi

Movie: Pardes

Subhash Ghai first wanted A.R Rahman to compose the music for Pardes, but he was too expensive, so he asked Nadeem-Shravan to do it and the album was said to be the best composition of Nadeem-Shravan by Planet Bollywood as well as many other Music critics.

Even Shahrukh Khan mentioned in some of his interviews that “Yeh Dil Deewana” was his favourite song, sung for him by Sonu Nigam. Anand Bakshi deserves the maximum credits for giving birth to the beautiful words with deep meaning that make up this track.

Behind the VFX effects and Amir, Kajol’s chemistry it is the wonderful singing by Sonu and Sunidhi that deserves the compliments. Prasoon Joshi’s poetic abilities shine through the melodious song. Fanaa was a classic and so is this track.

Where Did Sonu Nigam Imbibe His Love For Music From?

Sonu Nigam had music in his blood, as his parents did a lot of stage shows and musical performances, but he came from a very humble background and did not have any fancy, expensive instruments as a kid. He learnt on a mini harmonium. When he became a successful singer, he brought the costliest instruments for himself.

As he came from nowhere, he always had a deep longing to rise and shine.

He wanted to emerge out of the ashes like a Phoenix and by the blessings of God he achieved a lot. Sonu Nigam says that “My prayer is to learn new things, imbibe fresh insights. You must not take life too seriously. You must enjoy the process of living”.

Just like Sonu, we must learn new things, absorb new insights and not take life too seriously, instead enjoy the entire process of living.
