Said that he sang almost 25 songs, for about an hour each, at various locations in Mumbai for it. In the video, Sonu, dressed as an old man and in shoddy clothes, sings with a harmonium on the streets of Mumbai.
Actually he had sung about 25 songs at three different spots for one hour each. Sonu sang one hour behind the movie theatre Chandan, one hour in front of Chandan and one hour at Four Bungalows. He explained how it wasn’t easy sitting in the sun and dust and he worked hard which made people join in, as reported by IANS.
Sonu said in a media interaction: “They didn’t recognize my voice. They liked my voice; that was the good part that I could actually out of nowhere attract them through my voice. I was dreading the fact that these people shouldn’t recognize me; that would be an embarrassment for me. There was no one around me, no bodyguards, no team, no managers.”
“What you guys saw, was a very short clip. At every spot, I sang for one hour each. One hour behind Chandan (theatre in Mumbai), then one hour in front of Chandan, one hour at Four Bungalows (area in Mumbai). So, it wasn’t easy, sitting in the sun, in the dust, and I sang a varied range of songs; you just heard two. I might have sung at least 25 songs. I worked that hard, that’s why so many people joined in,” he added.
