Sunidhi Chauhan is one of the most versatile singers Bollywood has ever seen. In an interview with IBNlive, Sunidhi speaks about her entry into Bollywood, her competition, and her take on Atif Aslam.

Excerpts from the Sunidhi Chauhan interview:

Rajeev Masand: With your hit song from the film Race, the New Year started off with a bang for you, didn’t it? It’s a song that has been filmed on not one but three very hot actresses. You’ve given some of the top Bollywood actresses some of their sexiest songs. Do they ever come to you to thank you for making them sound so sexy on screen?

Sunidhi Chauhan: They are all very sweet but hardly any of them come and say thank you. However, whenever Lara Dutta meets me she says, “You know I still perform on Jadoo Daala Re and it so well sung.” So you know there are very few people but it is okay. It is not their fault because sometimes they don’t even know who sang the song. Most of the time while recording even we aren’t aware of who the song will be picturised on.

Rajeev Masand: Was Bollywood always a very welcoming place? You started pretty young. Did you find lots of egos and lots of people being difficult?

Sunidhi Chauhan: I was very young at that time. I was 11-12.However, my dad had to struggle for me. He left his career and everything and we moved to Bombay. It was him who used to meet people and take all the s*** that they gave. My job was just to go along with him, sing and come back. “Beta, wahan ja ke gao. Haan abhi chup ho jao (Go there and sing. Okay, now that’s it).” Like a tape recorder. Thanks to my dad. I am what I am today because of him.”

Rajeev Masand: The one song whose picturisation you were embarrassed by?

Sunidhi Chauhan: Oh this is a difficult one. Aag!”

Rajeev Masand: The most overrated singer is?

Sunidhi Chauhan: Atif Aslam. I know there are many fans of Atif Aslam but I think he can’t sing. Sorry.
