Sonu Nigaam sang many quality songs in 2012.
There was a time between 2000 to 2009 when Sonu Nigaam dominated bollywood music. The successful composers of bollywood namely AR Rehman, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Sajid Wajid gave successful songs to Sonu Nigaam.
Then in the years 2010 and 2011, Sonu Nigaam sang less number of songs. Previously he won filmfare awards in the films Kal Ho Naa Ho and Saathiya. But he deserved the best male playback singer award many more numbers of times. He received Zee Cine Award for best male playback singer 4 times. He received Colour Screen Award for best male playback singer three times.
Sonu Nigaam sang a number of good songs in 2012. In Dabaang 2, his song “saanson ne” composed by Sajid Wajid was a good song. His song “apna mujhe tu laga” in the film 1920: Evil Returns was impressive. His other successful songs in 2012 included “jaane bhi de” in film Ishq in Paris, “Oh My Love” in Raaz 3, “yeh joker” in Joker, “jabse mera dil ko uff” in film Teri Meri Kahaani, “maara re” in Ferrari Ki Sawari.
Sonu Nigaam has got good classical background. Other than Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, there are not many trained singers of the callibre of Sonu Nigaam. He deserves more songs in bollywood films and composers like Sajid Wajid, Ajay Atul, Pritam, Salim Sulaiman, Shankar Ehsaan Loy should give more songs and melodious songs which are sung by Sonu Nigaam very well.
