Sonu Nigam: Don't Take Away Our Credit!

The late star Dev Anand had once said that without Koishore Kumar’s singing capabilities he wouldn’t have achieved the kind of success he had. Ironically, in the special title song of Bombay Talkies, which commemorates the 100 years of Indian cinema, the names of the singers are not even mentioned!

The special song of Bombay Talkies which stars Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and several other leading stars, has some of the most renowned playback singers like Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam, Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, SB Balasubramanium, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan, Shreya Ghoshal, Sukhwinder Singh, Shilpa Rao and Mohit Chauhan. But unfortunately the CD has neither the mention of any of their names, nor are they part of the video. The album credit simply chooses to credit it to ‘various singers’
Sonu Nigam says, “I have no issue except that we all sang free of charge out of our own free will for that song, not to be called ‘Various Singers’ in the credits. Just mentioning all our names, would have made us feel that our gesture in goodwill was appreciated. I’m sure it’s not asking for too much. is it?”
He adds, “Also, if they had given the credits, it would have added value to the song, as each singer has his or her own fan following.”
Shilpa Rao, however, chose to be magnanimous about it. She says,“Yes, I’m aware that there are no names mentioned but it’s ok. We are celebrating 100 years of cinema and being a part of it is enough.”
Other singers were not available for comment

Sonu Nigam Sings For The For Bombay Talkies Title Track!



















From the Khans - Aamir, Shah Rukh and Saif Ali - to leading ladies Madhuri Dixit, Vidya Balan and Rani Mukerji, as many as 20 screen stars have united for a special title track for "Bombay Talkies", a film that celebrates 100 years of Indian cinema.
The song, titled "Apna Bombay talkies", has been choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant.
Others who will feature in the song are Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, Sridevi, Akshay Kumar, Karisma Kapoor and Juhi Chawla.
Around 20 singers have also come together to lend their voices for the actors, said a source.
"For the first time, 20 singers will be part of the same song. The title track has been sung by some of the most reputed singers in the industry. And the interesting part about this is that the singers have recorded for those actors whom they generally do the playback singing for in their movies," the source added.
The source said, "Vaibhavi has beautifully choreographed this number. There was a strict dress code for all the actors. All the men had to wear black tuxedos and the women wore gold outfits, designed by their own stylists. The song took over a month to be shot entirely as all the actors have independently shot for their parts."
"Bombay Talkies" is an amalgamation of four short films by four filmmakers - Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, Dibaker Banerjee and Karan Johar. The movie releases May 3 and it will also be screened at Cannes film fest this year.

Present in full force were the Mangeshkars, including Hridaynath with his sister Meena Khadikar and son Adinath. Gracing the event were other veterans from the music industry. Also spotted sitting close to the Mangeshkars in the front row was Uddhav Thackeray's wife Rashmi.

Sonu Nigam Interveiw - TOI APRIL 2013

 









Play Sonu Nigam's TOIFA-winning song Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin from Agneepath, followed by Har Ek Friend Kamina Hota Hai from Chashme Baddoor; and you will know why he's called versatile. In an exclusive interview, the singer tells us about hitting the right chords. Excerpts...

Your song Har Ek Friend from Chashme Baddoor has become popular. We believe you were to act in the film too.
It is great that songs like Har Ek Friend... and Abhi Mujhme Kahin came to me at a time when I was particularly choosy. I wanted more time with my ailing mother over the past couple of years. I wish she could see that this song has become such a hit. During a recent tour, I was amazed by the kind of response Har Ek Friend received. It is beyond expectations. But I'm unable to enjoy it because we're still mourning my mother's demise. About acting in the film, yes Davidji had offered me the role of one of the three guys in 2011. It made news then, but I guess it slipped out of people's minds.

What happened? Why didn't you do it?
Mere saath toh aisa hai ki doodh ka jala chaach ko bhi phook-phook kar peeta hai. 'Once bitten twice shy' wali baat hai. Davidji, the production house and I mutually decided that I won't do the movie. But I think Chashme Baddoor had to give me something — if not a role, then a great song.

You won the TOIFA for Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin. How did it feel?
Everything in my life boils down to my mother. A tradition, which a lot of people do not know of, is that while I'd give my father the money I earned, anything that was special to me — like an award or an album — would be given to my mother. I wish I could give this one to her, too. All my awards were first kept at her feet. I am just happy about the fact that someday when these awards mark their 100th year, I will be remembered as the singer who bagged the first TOIFA for Best Playback Singer (Male). When Kal Ho Na Ho happened in 2004, I thought this was it, abhi iske upar kuch bhi nahi ayega, iske upar kabhi kuch ho nahi payega. Very rarely does something like this come your way; like for Lataji, it was Ae Mere Watan Ke Logon. After that, a song like Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin coming my way feels unbelievable. I'd say it was the blessing of my mother. Actually, 'hit' is not the right word — it has become a part of people's system. Whether I am performing for an elite crowd or a crowd of 20,000 people — the moment someone asks for Agneepath, and I respond 'Agneepath chahiye?' the noise in the crowd, shows that this song has become huge. It also proves that some people in the industry are lying when they say the audiences don't like good songs and that only item numbers and ringtone-type songs sell.

You've also composed music for films. What do you think you are better at, composing or singing?
From childhood, I have been more of a musician than a singer. People close to me know how much effort I put into practising. Even when I am travelling, I have my tanpura on my iPhone. I am not a God-gifted vocalist in terms of harkat, range, vagayrah. If I stop practising, I will be an average singer. There are a lot of singers I know who hardly practise, yet sing well.
