(above) aka Sukh E, who came into the lime­light thanks to his re­cently re­leased sin­gle, Jaguar, be­lieves that the song has changed his life. “Woh ke­hte hain na, ek gana aisa hota jo aapki life badal de — Jaguar ne mere zindagi badal di,” he says, ad­mit­ting that he never an­tic­i­pated that the song will be­come such a hit. “I knew it will be a good song and peo­ple will ap­pre­ci­ate it. But I never thought that it will get such an ex­cel­lent re­sponse,” he says.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess, Sukh E, who is also plan­ning to re­lease the song’s se­quel, called Jaguar 2, in Au­gust, tells us that the orig­i­nal num­ber was never meant to be sung by him. “I have had this song with me for a few years now. I had pro­duced this song and I wanted some other Pun­jabi singers to sing it. But then, ev­ery­one was like, ‘Yeh kya hai pahji, yeh kaisa gana hai — kudi Jaguar mang rahi hai’, and that’s how they ig­nored it. But then af­ter my sin­gle Sniper (fea­tur­ing rap­per Raftaar) came out and got pop­u­lar, I de­cided that I will sing this song my­self,” he says.

Sukh E also re­veals that he is also in talks with pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies from Bol­ly­wood, which have lined up to use the sin­gle in their movies. “We are cur­rently talk­ing to three to four com­pa­nies that have ex­pressed their in­ter­est to use this song in their film. Right now, we are just go­ing over the de­tails and then we’ll de­cide who to give the song to,” he says.
