He considers each song, coming his way, a part of the learning process. “The film Shamshera, with two-hour-plus duration, has romance, action and emotion.

Playing here has been an honour and it feels humbling, being here today for Shabaash Mithu.” Taapsee adds, “It feels surreal kicking off our city trail from here. I have watched many matches here but never imagined that I would be standing here for a movie. It’s a different feeling, knowing and understanding the history and the importance of this space to the sport.” does he pick up a project? “All I ask is ‘do you have few days in hand’ and if that is in affirmative, I am on. Yes, I do like to know about the content of the film. If the content is good and the song given to me has clean language, then I put all my energy into the song.” And no, he is not bothered about whether the cast is new or old, the composer is established or not or the budget of the project. “When I was launched with Dil Se, I was a newcomer. But the song was accepted and loved. So, I am open to working with old and new alike.” Sukhwinder started to sing ever since he started to speak. “I must be around five or six when I knew that I wanted to be a singer. I started with stage shows and spent time in the company of singers. They mentored me and the learning that started back then has continued till today.” His passion for music took him away from childhood games like gulli danda and kanche. “While I look up to my mentors, I wish to be around fun-loving musicians. Even today, my profession gives me immense joy and I carry on making music with kindred souls.” Interestingly, Sukhwinder calls his hometown ‘Bharat’. Post receiving his third National Award, the then President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, invited him to the Rashtrapati Bhavan, and he wanted to know why he called his hometown ‘Bharat’. “When I went there, he had my bio-data in front of him and asked me about the same. I told him that I take pride being an Indian. I carry my nation with me wherever I perform – America, England Australia, and whenever I have to write hometown, it would be Bharat!” While many more projects are on his way, Sukhwinder is excited about working with Vishal Bhardwaj’s son Aasmaan Bhardwaj. While Sukhwinder’s relationship with Vishal Bhardwaj goes long back – they having done Haider, Dedh Ishqiy, Omkara and The Blue Umbrella together, the singer is all praise for Aasmaan. “He’s a young boy and very talented.
