EXCLUSIVE! Sunidhi Chauhan charts Single plans around IIFA 2023

Sunidhi Chauhan is planning to release a music single early next year, the popular singer has revealed exclusively to Buzzzing.com. Winner of two Filmfare awards, Chauhan would not disclose any more or even the fact whether it will coincide with the IIFA Rocks awards while be held in Abu Dhabi on February 9-11.

The singer spoke to us amid a hectic schedule of promoting the IIFA Rocks well in advance and her other commitments. Last week, Indian singer Sunidhi Chauhan took part and entertained in a political rally titled ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, translating into a mission to unite India in an attempt by opposition party Congress.

Just 39, and singing for more than two decades, the country and her fans worldwide are united in the opinion that she is a world-class talent who has managed to hold on to her own with the passage of time. And she will head to the UAE capital where the IIFA awards will be held for a second successive year. The event is held away from India as much as possible to celebrate the achievers of Bollywood with fans worldwide.

No less than Lata Mangeshkar, the recently departed ‘Nightingale of India’, picked Chauhan as the most versatile singer in the contemporary period. “I am honoured and humbled that Lataji thought so for me. I think I am learning and still have so much to do. Every day, I am trying to explore different avenues and different styles in my singing. I hope I can keep doing that while staying grounded for my fans,” the melody queen told Buzzzing.com in an exclusive interview.
Her address to the fans is not new. She learned to talk the talk long back, after hastening headlong into a doomed early love marriage at 18 – a result of a one-year relationship with aspiring filmmaker Bobby Khan which nearly derailed her career before it began.
Be it a peppy item song number or a melodious track, Chauhan is adept and has rendered hits like Mast, Beedi, Dhoom Machale, Sheila ki Jawaani, and many more to Saami Saami as late as last year. But she prefers to be tight-lipped on what songs will she line up at the IIFA Rocks.
But she almost lets the cat slip out of the bag on any big projects in the pipeline, similar the international collaboration she did with Enrique Iglesias in 2011 and it has been a long time. “You will hear about something major soon early next year. It has been a long time since I have done a single. I don’t remember when I did that, honestly. So I am excited about and you will hear about it very soon.”
Chauhan has been ruling roost in an industry which has seen many changes and many singers rising on the scene in recent years. “I practice my craft every day,” she says on how she has managed to stay relevant and on her daily routine as an established singer. “The demands on my time means that it is not at a fixed time of the day or in the early hours, so I have adapted. Now I practice while I am driving or going from one place to another. But I agree times have changed and we have to adapt.”
Usually, most B-town celebrities prefer Dubai, but asked for her most favourite moment in the UAE, the private personality said she had a “very good time when she last came here for a vacation in Yas Island”, ironically, the venue of IIFA Rocks. The event will be hosted by Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar and Farah Khan, who also hosted the 2022 IIFA Awards as well with Aparshakti Khurrana and Maniesh Paul.
“I had recently been to Abu Dhabi for a vacation,” Chauhan said. “I had a blast, so I am looking forward to returning there. I have been a part of IIFA before. Wherever it is held, it is a great platform for singers to catch up and mix with people from different cultures and the music industry. It will be great to see fans from all over the world, who buy tickets and come to watch us. There will be other artists and we should have a gala time performing.”
