Sonu Nigam loves donning many hats. The playback singer, who has also dabbled in acting besides judging a popular reality music series, is now debuting as a composer for a Bollywood film.
The singer has collaborated with tabla player/percussionist Bickram Ghosh and the duo has composed all tracks of the film, Jal, direct by Girish Malik.
“Composing music with Bickram for this exciting project was a great experience,” says Sonu, adding that the transition to directing music was effortless for him.
“Composing comes naturally to me because apart from being a singer, I’m also a musician. I understand the technical intricacies involved in the arrangement and production of tracks,” says the singer, who has, in the past, composed for a few of his independent pop albums too.
For his debut film, Sonu has also penned lyrics for the title track, ‘Jal de jal de…’ which features singer Shubha Mudgal.
Jal stars actors Purab Kohli, Mukul Dev and Tannishtha Chatterjee.
The film’s story revolves around the water crisis that erupts in the Kutch region due to the drying up of river Narmada.
Recently, the singer also composed an anthem, ‘Haseen zindagi…’ written by Javed Akhtar, for a breast cancer awareness campaign called B Aware! “This composition is an effort aimed at creating awareness for the cause. I believe that it’s important to give back to society in any manner you can,” reveals Sonu.
Aimed at the youth, the upbeat song has been voiced by six young talents from the industry from Shefali Alvares and Shruti Pathak to Akriti Kakkar, Teesha Nigam, Neha Bhasin and Shilpa Rao.

Several film personalities came down to Chandanwadi crematorium in Marine Lines, South Mumbai, at noon on Tuesday to say their last goodbyes to ghazal singer Jagjit Singh, who passed away early Monday morning. Sonu Nigam appeared visibly upset as he spoke of the late singer. 'We know ghazals only because of one man -- Jagjit Singh. It's such sad news that he is not present among us today. The loss is irreparable. He was such a lively person. I am shocked. I don't know how he succumbed to his illness. A few days ago, there was news that the hospital had removed the ventilators and his health was improving. His contribution not only to music but the world of entertainment is priceless. He was not only a ghazal singer but he also sang spiritual songs, bhajans and gurbanis. He also sang romantic Hindi film songs. 'He is the only person who has never seen a downfall in his career. Every actor and singer must face downfall but Jagjit Singh just kept rising. He was so active; he sang till the age of 70. I had met him recently during the voting of the GIMA awards. I'd pulled his cheeks and had so much fun. I didn't know we would be meeting for the last time. He was planning to go for a tour to America next year,' Sonu added.
