While talking to a leading portal, Sonu Nigam talked about not getting enough offers in India and how it would have benefited him if he were a Pakistani.
Sonu Nigam is one of the most amazing singers in the Hindi film industry. From the early 90s to 2000s, the singer has won our hearts, made us fall in love and dance to the tunes of his songs. Sonu had sung hit songs in almost every Hindi film. He also lent his voice to songs for regional films which also went on to become hits. However, from the past few years, the singer has been getting fewer songs.
While talking to India Today, the singer said that if he were a Pakistani, he would have got more work in India. The Kal Ho Naa Ho singer said, “Sometimes, I feel like it would be better if I was from Pakistan. At least I would get offers from India.” Sonu Nigam also said that nowadays, singers have to pay to music companies to do the shows. He revealed that if they don’t shell out money, they play songs by other singers and highlight the same.
“They don’t do the same with Pakistani singers. But then why single only Indian singers out? Atif Aslam is a very close friend of mine. He is never asked to pay to sing at shows, neither is Rahat Fateh Ali Khan,” added the singer.
