National Award winning singer Sukhwinder Singh says though he won many prestigious awards, he values music directors more than just the trophies.
“My music directors are bigger awards for me than the trophy. Winning award is a reward for me that comes with a great song. I do not create them but music director does. So, for me, they are my awards,” Singh told IANS.
The 62-year-old singer added: “Whether it is Filmfare Best Male Playback Award for Chaiyaa Chaiyaa, Haule Haule, National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer for Bismil and Jai ho, all credit goes to music directors and composers.
They created such magic songs!” Jai Ho is one of the songs, composed by A. R. Rahman and sung by him that won an Oscar.
