Popular Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam has been an active participant in sharing his opinion on various socio-political issues, but as per him politics isn’t his area and he isn’t ready to enter right now.
The singer congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his massive victory in the Lok Sabha elections.
Sonu Nigam has remained outspoken on several vulnerable topics including playing of the national anthem in public places, the #MeToo movement, etc. showing a lot of interest on the social causes. In the past, he even didn’t hesitate on extending his support to the transgender community including a charity concert to raise funds for educating tribal children, and another UNICEF charity project.
When asked about his interest on the political ground, Sonu Nigam, without mentioning the name of any political party spoke his mind to the IANS media saying, “I am not ready for politics right now. I politely declined the offer which I got.”
The singer apart from congratulating Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his victory had also remained in the headlines for contributing his voice for the web series verse “Shyam Ke Rogan Rele”.
He further added in this regard, saying, “No pressure at all. It’s a song like any other song and I give equal importance to all the songs. This was no different.”
Soon after returning from his US tours, Sonu Nigam commented on the changes in country saying, “With time, you change as a person, a performer, the technology changes, the taste of the audience changes, the preference etc. But one simple thing you have to keep in mind, especially in places like the US and Canada, there is a lot of attention given to the sincerity of the performer. “
He further added, “In any other country, including India, one can still get away with somewhat average singing packaged with great production. But in America, one has to keep doing his or her best in order to attract the crowds, especially for the 18th time in 24 years. It helps me give my best and it’s a heart-warming experience to know that I have been doing something good for the past two-and-a-half decades. “
