Singing career, motherhood: I’ll strike a balance
Sunidhi Chauhan is both excited and nervous about embracing motherhood, but the singer doesn’t plan to put her music career on the back-burner after delivery. She hopes to be able to balance both worlds with utmost care. “I don’t really plan many things. I have always gone with my instinct and flow... There is going to be a new life in my life and it will be equally or more important than anything else. My first and last love is my singing, the gift God gave to me. So, I’ll take care of both and just make sure I’m at peace with myself,” says the 34-year-old. Sunidhi got married to music composer Hitesh Sonik in 2012. The news of her pregnancy came out this August. “I’m thankful to all the amazing wishes coming my way for me and my baby... This is something that I am experiencing for the first time. I am thankful to God for that because, now that I am in this state, I have realised that it is the most beautiful, most magical thing,” says Sunidhi. Talking about her health these days, the singer adds, “I get tired too quickly nowadays, but I am loving the conversations that I am having with my friends because this is all I talk about all the time, trying to know more about motherhood and babies, preparing myself, conditioning myself for the day when I will see my baby in my hands and [will be] taking care of it.” She is expected to deliver in December. Sunidhi, who has sung popular numbers such as Mast, Kamli, Desi Girl, Navrai Majhi and Saaki, has also shown her acting skills, and judged singing reality shows.
