Never made any film for myself: Sonu Nigam
Singer Sonu Nigam has also been a composer, performer, host and an actor. He says, while most people make films to launch themselves, the Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani (2002) actor never made any movie for himself.
In the new video of the song Ishq Ki Gali, Sonu is seen flaunting his dance and acting skills. “I’ve featured in a video song for a film after a long time, and it felt nice. It’s a wedding song. I did this out of my love for Vibhas (composer) and also because the ethos behind the film is so nice,” says Sonu.
Asked if he would you like to do a full-fledged film once again as an actor, Sonu adds, “I never made any film for myself. People offered (them to) me. Everybody else makes films to launch themselves. I never wanted to do that. I don’t have the time or the intent or the inclination to invest 100 days of my life on something, which is going to take over the rest of my life.”
Calling himself a “busy human being”, the singer, who will soon release a single, shares, “I’ve a lot of things that I do in my life, so, to leave all that and get busy in shooting, would be difficult. I don’t say no to anything but yes, if I’m ever destined to and if I find something good come my way... I will (act again). Otherwise, I am not making any special efforts for it.”
Earlier this week, Sonu updated his fans on social media about him getting hospitalised due to sea food allergy. But that hasn’t stopped him from working. Talking about his projects, he says, “There’s another song that’s coming out soon and you’ll see me doing a lot of masti in that song too.”
