My son has inclination towards music:Sonu Nigam

Mumbai: He is just four-year-old but his singing of new version of the popular `Tanglish` song `Kolaveri Di` has created sensation and Papa Sonu Nigam is proud of the achievement. Nigam has said his son Neevan has inclination towards music but he does not want to force anything on him as he is too young.

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.
