Everyone’s favorites, mellow singer Sonu Nigam was part of a social experiment ‘Road side Ustad’ where he concealed himself as a homeless old man and sang on a busy street of Mumbai. People did not notice him at all, they did not know that the man behind this mask is Sonu, but they loved his songs!
One boy asked him if he could record his songs and asked him if he had breakfast, he gently placed 12 rupees in Sonu’s hand. For Sonu this was a outstanding, memorable experience!
Sonu says that he sang for hours on the streets in the sun, he was motivated by a footballer who had concealed himself and played with people.
But for a ‘vocalist’ this was one of its kind. He was happy with the feedback and love he received from his fans world over.
The team of Being Indian searched for that boy a week later and made him meet Sonu Nigam. His name is Shahbaz Ali Sayyed , and he is Sonu’s real fan in reality! When he first saw the master vocalist he hugged him tightly and thanked him for all the love.
