His other pet project is the musical reality show SaReGaMaPa L'il Champs where he is a judge. His contribution as a judge has given the show the much needed boost. Sonu does not agree to the notion that reality shows can thrive only on dramas. "I wanted to prove to the channel that it's a wrong notion of theirs that all these dramas and fights get high TRP. Without that also you can get it. Just now I would say SRGMP is the most clean musical show on Television. And it has got a very high TRP too," says Sonu. The show had at its early stages a plan to go for a lady judge but was later shelved. Sonu too confirms the same, "The Channel House had wanted to include a female judge too but I flatly refused as they had wanted to show some drama involving her. I had made it very clear to the channel house that, I won't allow all those judges fights and stuff in the show in which I am a judge. So I told them to get only Sureshji as my fellow judge."
With every reality shows these days thriving on drama, who is to be blamed the audience who lap it all up or the channel house that overfeeds the same old clinched stories every time? "The blame does not lie with the audience. It lies with the channel houses. One channel shows dirt, other follows it and show bit more third goes for more. Audience is watching whatever they are being given. Give them quality shows and they will surely enjoy it. They also don't like such stuff," was his prompt reply. Do we see him again in future on SaReGaMaPa seniors too? "No I have no idea yet if I'll be there in the next season of seniors or not. Just now too much is happening in my life. I am busy till May and lets see what course life takes after that. If there's nothing I'll just take chill and go easy."
Sonu's zeal for "something different musically" is surely a treat for his fans. No matter how unconventional his projects may be he knows how to turn things in his favor. He is surely a name to reckon with and is definitely a legend in the making.
