About Sonu Nigam
Multi-talented and good at selling himself, Sonu Nigam wears many hats: singer, actor, former child star and television anchorman. A child actor who also sang at wedding parties with his father in Delhi, Nigam hit the big-time when he moved to Bombay at age 18. After a few false starts, had a hit with the song "Achha Sila Diya Tune Mere Pyaar Ka" from the film Bewafa Sanam. That success led to a gig anchoring the popular television music show Sa Re Ga Ma, which in turn paved the way for his career as a pop singer (thanks in no small part to the patronage of now-deceased T-Series bigwig Gulshan Kumar). After several platinum ablums, Nigam shows no signs of slowing down: he won a Filmfare award in 2002 for "Saathiya" from the film of the same name.
