CS caught up with the singer for a chat:
On seventh heaven
I am very thrilled that Big B has written in his blog about me. He has praised my singing, and there can’t be any bigger compliment for me. I can say that I am Big B’s biggest fan ever. He epitomises the complete performer as he can act, sing, dance, and do comedy as well as action films.
I have seen Sholay at least 55 times. The other films I love are Agneepath, Sharabi and Namak Halal. And I feel that even 500 years from now, Rang Barse will be the song that’ll be the number one favourite at Holi parties.
Whenever I am doing a concert, I definitely sing some of Big B’s numbers. My picks are Imtihan Ho Gayee, Samundar Mein Nahake, Pyaar Mein Dil Pe Maar De Goli, Jahan Teri Yeh Nazar Hai. In fact, I always try to copy Big B’s attitude when I am singing. He has a fabulous voice, and the bass effect is phenomenal.
Whenever I meet him, I always touch his feet for blessings. And he always replies to my smses without fail. His graciousness and courtesy have no match.
