Sporting Spirit

Sukhwinder finalSukhwinder Singh in conversation with Bhavi Gathani says he has an instinctive connection with sports, which made his experience while singing Sachin Sachin very special

Sukhwinder Singh’s songs Jai Ho and Chak De India are frequently used as anthems at sporting events. Now he has another one to add to this list, the song Sachin Sachin for cricketing icon Sachin Tendulkar’s upcoming biopic.

Explaining how he felt an instant connection with the song, Singh says, “I started my career as a 100-metre racer. Being a sportsperson myself, I know what sports means. Since Sachin is a very special sportsperson, my vocals automatically started producing something very special for his song. Singing for such a personality is an honour for me.”

About Tendulkar’s reaction after listening to the song, Singh says, “Unhone muje gale laga liya. He looked at me and said just one thing, ‘You are very sharp, keep it up’.”

Singh has worked on many projects with AR Rahman and has learnt a lot from the maestro. “There are two benefits of working with Rahman. One is I get a very good song to sing, and the other thing is that I still get to learn from him. Working with Rahman is also a parallel learning process for me. He says that when I work with him, it’s as if two composers are working on one song.” On the rap singer Kaly in the song, Singh says that although he has never met him, he finds the rap portion in the song “very interesting”.

On how music has evolved over the years, Sigh says only the technical aspect has changed; it still resonates with emotion. “Those who are completely dependent on technical things, unki wahi halat hai jaise kagaz ke phool hote hai jinme se mahek nahi aati. Those who adapt these techniques but keep the feel natural, like AR Rahman and Vishal Bhardwaj, will only shine,” avers Singh, adding that there are only a handful of musicians like this.

Apart from his upcoming songs in movies Mom and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Singh is going to start a band with Rahman, called Stars, and will be releasing a single. “I am doing one single with Rahman. And this month, we will record it and shoot it as well. This band is based completely on entertainment. Our first priority is to entertain the public but with this we will also sing nation-oriented songs.”
