Singer Sonu Nigam

Singer Sonu Niigam, who has turned music director, says a composer should not crave to sing songs.

"I feel a composer should not crave to sing songs because songs itself decides its voice. The films where I have given music, I have kept my option for the last. Many singers have sung the song in my music. I like to make music and not necessarily I should be singing all the songs," he said.

He has composed music for "Jal" with Vikram Ghosh. He has also given music for "Super Se Upar" and "Singh Sahab The Great" where he has done the title song. "I get a lot of offers. Many people asked me to give music."

Known for singing mesmerising numbers "Suraj hua maddham, "Kal Ho Naa Ho" and "Saathiya", the singer admits his passion for singing is intact.

Sonu, who also tried his hand at acting, says at that time the audiences were not ready to accept singers as actors.

"I feel I was the first one to set this trend but that time people were not ready to accept a singer as an actor. But now audiences are ready," said Sonu, who featured in the 2004 movie "Love In Nepal".
