To Emon, Sonu Nigam is like almost like a God. He had not only plastered his room at his Kolkata residence with the posters of this singer but makes sure to celebrate Sonu’s Birthday every year with a cake. More than becoming the Indian Idol he wanted to meet his idol in person or atleast performs once in front of him. As his luck would have been Sonu was not a part of this season’s Indian Idol as he had overseas concerts.
So finally on this day Emon got the chance of his life time – To sing in front of his God and that he did in the best possible manner. He opened the Gala Round with singing the song Tu…(Sonu’s Album). But what awaited him after that was something maybe Emon never imagined. He got the biggest compliment ever from none other than Sonu Nigam himself - "I don't think he copies my style of singing. He sings in his own original voice and it is great!" We can very well imagine Emon’s happiness!!
But it was after that is something everyone would remember too. As we all know how good Sonu is in doing mimicry of senior singers to perfection. This time Emon too joins his Guru and the Guru-Shishya jodi take turn to mimic all the judges with Udit Narayn personally requesting Sonu to do for him!! The whole set was brought to a laughter round with these two performing all their antics. But before leaving the sets Sonu gave a momento to Emon. It was a picture of the diety that he believes a lot and makes sure to have it with him when he starts recording. We hope to see Emon in the recording studio too soon!
So finally Emon’s dream of not just meeting his idol but also performing in front of him has come true. Sony made sure that it’s a days which Emon possibly would never forget.
With such excitement, one cannot afford to miss the next gala round. Watch this moment come alive on Friday August 17 th at 9 pm only on Sony Entertainment Television.
