Mumbai: Bollywood singers Sonu Nigam, Sukhwinder Singh, Sunidhi Chauhan and others gave a special musical tribute to Sarabjit Singh at an event here.
The singers came together on one stage to perform their respective songs from the film “Sarbjit”, based on the Indian convict.
Sonu, who recently underwent a knee surgery, sang the song “Dard” from the film along with composer Jeet Ganguly. Sandeep Singh, the producer of “Sarbjit”, said the singer was in extreme pain while recording the song due to his knee surgery which he had undergone days before giving his voice to the track.
“In 2005, I had come out in support for Sarabjit. I think it was my destiny to be a part of the film today. Randeep, from what I’ve seen in the trailers, you’ve done an excellent job,” Nigam said at the event.
The movie is based on Sarabjit Singh, who died following an assault by fellow prisoners in a Pakistani jail. It stars Randeep Hooda in the titular role of the Sukhwinder and Sunidhi Chauhan, along with Shail Hada and Kabana took to the stage to perform the energetic number “Tung Lak”.
The performance was followed by a special dance number by choreographer Shiamak Davar’s troupe. Current music sensation Amaal Malik sang the soft number “Salamat” along with Tulsi Kumar, while Shashi Shivam and Meghdeep Bose gave voice to “Nindiya”.
Other singers including Pritesh Mehta, Shaasha, Tirupti, Altamash, Supriya, Arsh and Raja Hassan also performed on the occasion.
Besides Randeep, the film also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, as Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur, Richa Chadda, Darshan Kumar among others.
“Sarbjit” is scheduled to release this Friday.
