Meanwhile, Sonu Nigam has announced that he will be releasing his memoir soon. Talking about the book Nigam told IANS: "I remember a quote by George Bernard Shaw that I read in my English book in 9th Standard that said, 'All autobiographies are lies.' I strangely agreed with the reasoning behind it elaborated in that lesson. I never knew then though that there ever would come a time in my life when I would be asked to write mine."
"It is a tough task to decide how much would one, or should one, reveal of one's life. It's exciting too, considering one actually gets to revisit the lanes and by-lanes of ever-so-personal, undisclosed details of one's glorious life, and grin furtively at some of the most unfathomable experiences one is fated to go through.
"What I am going to go through while writing my autobiography sends chills down my spine honestly. Uncountable dynamics through a tedious, scandalous, emotional and spiritual life, need to be assessed and poured in the form of words. But I, on second thoughts, am sure my guts and courage will sail me through," Nigam adds.
