Never made any film for my­self: Sonu Nigam

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.”
