Whenever Sonu Nigam had faced the camera it has been a total disaster. Sonu tried his hand at acting with movies like Beetab, Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani, Kash Aap Hamare Hote and the recent one being Love In Nepal. Apart from the last one, all have been a complete disaster at the box office.
Sonu has given a nod for an upcoming movie which is currently being scripted. Aakashdeep, who will be directing the film featuring Sonu, said it all started when he managed to convince Sonu to sing a peppy number on screen for his upcoming film, Santa Banta Pvt. Ltd.
“It’s sung during a Diwali party on a cruise ship in Fiji. Noticing how comfortable Sonu was in front of the camera, his co-actors – including Boman Irani and Neha Dhupia – told him that he should start acting again,” Aakashdeep was quoted by a leading daily.
The director when narrated the entire plot, Sonu immediately agreed to do the film. “He was instantly hooked and gave his nod about 15 days ago. Now the final script is being written by a Delhi playwright, Saeed Alam, keeping Sonu in mind,” the filmmaker further adds.
