There was a time when Indian television saw a lot of Sonu Nigam, sometimes in the form of contestant, sometimes in the form of host and sometimes even in the form of judge. But, off late we see less of him, both on TV and otherwise. This Sunday however it was glad to see him back on Indian television after a gap of so many years. Thanks to Mad in India who decided to raise their madness temperature by bringing Sonu Nigam as the guest.
Sunil Grover is a big fan of Sonu Nigam just like us and this made him bring the leading playback singer on the Mad in India stage amdist the Bharatnagar crazy inhabitants. While, we expected Sonu singig some of his all time favorites, what completely blew the audiences way was his mimicry. Sonu’s mimics added fuel to the fire of entertainment on Star Plus.
Sonu’s conversation with Sabji aka Sunil Grover as a Punjabi boy was equally intriguing and fun. Going through lot of stress and exam tension, it is fun to see how Sonu teaches him the way to get going before exams. Sonu in the show also revealed how in the industry he always wanted to sing those peppy numbers but was given sad songs to sing.
A perfect fun riot, it was good to see Sonu Nigam on stage for such a long period of time. His parody of one of his most popular songs – ‘Mai Hoo Naa’ indeed set us rolling, making us crave for more. Apparently we will see him more as it apeared that the singer was on the 100% desi show to promote his upcoming movie Jal.
