Sonu's Instagram entry has been made at the behest of his fans, whom he refers to as his extended family. "Instagram is a new and an exciting platform for me as described by my extended family and well-wishers. I have been getting requests and messages from all over the world to come on Instagram and I think it is long overdue," he said in a statement.
"I hope and wish I can post regularly and people get a closer view of my life. I am going to try my best to keep up with the pace, although I am not the kind of person who shares his life and personal moments on social media. I am looking forward to this new adventure," added the singer of hit tracks like "Kal ho na ho", "Abhi mujh mein kahin" and "Panchi nadiya pawan ke".
