She was so glad to get tips from Sonu, and with his permission she called her parents and made them talk to the singer,” quips the source.
“Sourabhee who is not a trained singer had many questions for Sonu on her range, throw of voice etc. Sonu just told her to stop being nervous and keep singing, and everything will become fine,” adds the source.
