There is this very clever show on radio in Mumbai, called Musical-E-Azam. Occasionally, when the station wants to service their microphones, they get Shankar Mahadevan into the studios to yell questions. And this time, the recipient of all that noise was Sonu Nigam, who shouts back garbage in return.
When did the two of you first meet?
Sonu: Shankar is cool mind stroke person. [Link]
What in the name of God is that supposed to mean? That Shankar strokes his mind? And why would that be cool? That seems like such a dumb thing to do, stroking your mind. Aren’t there better things to stroke out there?
Shankar: You are very religious and superstitious, isn’t it?
Sonu: No. Spiritual is an exaggerated word. I am not superstitious. I believe in mind over matter. I think a lot. [Link]
Oh yeah, we all so totally get it man. You are just spewing out juvenile crap in the hopes that Angelina Jolie will adopt you, right? Don’t even bother, because I am told she’ll only consider actual children. And even if she relaxes the rule, she’ll pick John Abraham over you any day.
Shankar: Tell us about the Himalayas.
Sonu: [...] At one time, I heard the sound of some animals. I was not sure which animal… tiger, deer, snow leopard or a jackal. I kept a knife and spray in my hand for 30 minutes. After waiting for that animal, I realised that I felt the animal didn’t know I am a Sonu Nigam but his food. I realised that I was a piece of meat for him. It was a very important lesson of life. [Link]
If that’s the most important lesson you learnt, what were you up to in your zoology class, huh? That class where they taught you that tigers and deer and jackals make different types of sounds.
Shankar: Chicks are after you since then?
Sonu: I don’t trust chicks these days. These days, chicks are after everyone (laughs).
Chicks. I don’t know why, but that makes me want to go stroke my mind now. Hard.
