Sonu Nigam Sings For 'The Shiva Trilogy'

With his first book 'Immortals of Meluha' being converted into a movie by Karan Johar, author Amish Tripathi seems to have cemented his relationship with Bollywood. And the Mumbai-based author now seems to be taking that ahead with his next book, the third and last installment in the Shiva trilogy, through music.

We've learnt that Amish is working on a soundtrack for the book, which will have nine songs dedicated to Shiva — a first for any book. The songs have been inspired by various sections from the three books in the trilogy.

The lead single in the album has been sung by Sonu Nigam. The album will also feature other Bollywood singers.

Sonu Nigam Talks About Filmfare Awards 2013

Soon after it was announced that Ayushmann Khurana had won the Filmfare Best Singer award for ‘Paani Da Rang’ (Vicky Donor), Sonu Nigam fans on our website and social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, were furious with the jury’s decision.

Responding to the outcry from fans, Sonu Nigam on Twitter said “There’s a God around, who is the Ultimate Jury. As long you loved my work, I’m inspired. And let’s bless Ayushman too. It’s his night and we should be happy for him, for this award would mean so much more to him than it would have meant to me, cuz it’s his first :) god bless all”

Sonu Nigam Sings For Malayalam Movie '8.20'

Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam, who made his musical debut in M-Town with the Mohanlal-starrer Kandahar, has crooned yet another song in Mollywood.
The song, Thoo Manjin... will feature in Shyam Mohan's directorial debut, 8.20. The song revolves around the dream sequence of its lead actors Avanthika and Arjun. "I am a huge fan of Sonu and I wanted to make him sing at least one song in my directorial venture. His voice is so expressive that I felt nobody else can do justice to that song. Since my lead characters are NRIs, the slight north Indian diction was perfect for the characters," says Shyam.
The music is scored by Alex Kayyalakkakom and lyrics are by Engandiyoor Chandrasekharan. " 8.20 is a different film in every sense. It is not the usual love story or campus movie that we see in Mollywood. Though, there are a few elements of both to attract the youth," says Shyam.

Sonu Nigam Sings For Bloody Isshq

"Bloody Isshq" songs review: 
'Fourth comes "Baadalon Ki Hai Saazish", which is sung by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal. This is a duet romantic number which requires multiple listening. An ample song for a date and the album's best track so far....
The closing track is a repeat one "Baadalon Ki Hai Saazish". But this time it's the singer Sonu Nigam who goes Solo and creates the magical feel again....'

Sonu Nigam At Chennai Concert - An Article From 'The Hindu'

'Sonu, So Good'

‘Sonu Nigam Live in Concert’ was as much about the music as it was about the laughs
Full of verve — that’s a good way to describe Sonu Nigam’s concert last weekend at Wesley Grounds. The evening began with Teesha Nigam bringing some widely popular new songs to life. ‘Aaj ki raat’ from Don, ‘Aiyvain aiyvain’ from Band Baaja Baraat and ‘Tumhi ho bandhu’ from Cocktail in particular were good, with the orchestra recreating the feel of the original score in a near perfect manner. Then came the star of the evening. Sonu, who it was later announced was unwell and couldn’t sing a few hours ahead of the show, didn’t just perform, but entertained the audience for well over two-and-half hours with his music, dance and even some original stand-up comedy.
He started with the slow ‘Shukhran Allah’ (from Kurbaan) and then came, ‘Ajeeb ittefaq hai’ that was rendered with trademark perfection. That was expected of the man the audience has watched since his days as the host of the popular reality show Sa Re Ga Ma.
But what came as a pleasant surprise was Sonu’s stage presence and cheeky sense of humour as he enacted how fans from different parts of the country react when they run into him in public places. “South Indians are the best!” he said as the audience applauded in glee, “They politely come up and say, ‘Hello saar, I am fan saar! Heard you many times. Want to take one photo.” Of all the things people ask him, the most frequent question he’s had to answer is how music gets made.
So he decided to demonstrate to this audience how it was done. Choosing, after a lot of consultation with the audience, aloo, gobi, bhaingan and matar paneer as his lyrics Sonu and his orchestra stunned the audience with their rendition of these words in different composing styles – Anu Malik, Bappida, A.R. Rahman and finally new-age music a la Shankar Ehsaan Loy and Amit Trivedi.
After this came a riveting medley of Sonu’s popular songs. From ‘Mahi ve’ to ‘Bole choodiyan’ and ‘Hasti rahe’ to ‘Saathiya’. After reciting the profound lyrics of his immensely popular ‘Just Chill Chill’ (Soniya dil se mila dil, just chill chill, just chill — for the uninitiated), as if he were reciting a ‘sher’ Sonu went on to croon the fast number, every note in its perfect place.
But what is a Sonu Nigam concert without a few Rafi numbers? A quick medley of ‘Mera man tera’, ‘Aaja aaja mein hoon pyar tera’ followed.
When Sonu sang ‘Sandese aate hain’ from Border, it was as if time had stood still for 15 years; his voice unchanged, reproducing every small detail from the song that had become an anthem of sorts, back in 1997, Sonu sent the audience on a nostalgic journey indeed. Then came the quintessential Shah Rukh Khan-Sonu Nigam songs from the 1990s – ‘Yeh dil deewana’ from Pardes and ‘Satrangi’ from Dil Se. Besides moon-walking a la Michael Jackson, Sonu also treated the audience to some interesting trivia.
He announced that actor Khusbhoo who was seated in the front row, was a childhood friend who used to take care of him when he was young. When Khushboo asked for ‘Ab mujhe raat din’, Sonu obliged.
Supported by a great team of accompanists, he wrapped up the evening on a high note with ‘All is well’ and ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’. Introducing newer interpretations, keeping the audience engaged, obliging their requests and constantly announcing his surprise at how great an audience it was, Sonu was a rockstar who won Chennai over.
