"I was, I am and I will always be very busy with very little work," says Sukhwinder Singh. "I believe in working on one song at a time and I give it my all. I like to discuss the nitty gritties with my directors," avers the man who has regaled audiences with soulful performances, the latest being Dard-e-Disco from Om Shanti Om.
"I didn't let the success of Chaiyya Chaiyya go to my head," he says nonchalantly. An ardent admirer of ace composers A.R Rahman and Vishal Bharadwaj, Singh cannot stop raving about them.
"Vishal Bharadwaj (Beedi Jalaile from Omkara) is such a talented music director and a wonderful human being. There is no one quite like him. And of course Rahman. Any one who sings under his tutelage is assured of a bright future. They both appear to be lethargic but the minute they get going; no one is livelier or more animated than them."
Presently flexing his vocal chords for Rajkumar Santoshi's Halla Bol and Subhash Ghai's Black N White, Singh shortlists the five favourite songs of his filmi career in conversation with Swati R Chaudhary.
