My son has inclination towards music:Sonu Nigam
Ever since the original `Tanglish` (Tamil and English) song, `Kolaveri Di`, sung by Dhanush, caught people`s imagination and became a rage, several other versions of the number have hit the web, including one by Nigam`s son. The kid`s version has a new twist in the lyrics making it `milk song`. The lyrics of Neevan`s song go as – `handla glass-u, glass la milk-u, milk-u colour white-u, empty glass-u, mamma come-u, give me milk-u dear-u…`
In the video, Nigam is seen along with his wife Madhurima, encouraging their son who grabs the microphone. "My son is a nice boy. He is innocent, does not cry much and keeps everyone happy. I am happy everyone has liked his song. He has inclination towards music," Nigam told PTI on margins of the launch of his devotional album last night.
"He is a smart kid. He is too young and we don`t want to impose anything on him. He is learning dancing, judo, and will soon be trying piano. He is too small and I want him to enjoy his childhood," the singer said. At the age of three, Neevan had sung his first song with legendary Lata Mangeshkar. Nigam has recorded 24 different `Gayatri Mantras` for his latest devotional album, `Icchapurti Gayatri Mantras`, which was launched by actor Akshay Kumar. "I like to experiment with different music genres. I have done romantic songs, bhajans, classical, semi-classical but had not ventured into mantra space," he said.
