Guess what! These singers ‘Just Did It’

By Bryan Durham - September 9, 2018

Inspired by Nike’s ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick, we did a series of takes on the biggest Bollywood singers today with their most headline-worthy quotes/outbursts/lyrics that are relatable to the people who know and follow them.

ARIJIT SINGH

Arijit Singh is a real-life ‘Rockstar’. He is known to melt hearts with his voice, but a recent unearthing of an old video of his early days performing where he’s tackling Mohit Chauhan’s Nadaan Parindey went viral with the internet making him an instant meme over his angry outburst. Today, he is above it all, becoming one of the busiest, most sought-after performer and recording artists in the country.
Proof that if you believe in something, anything is possible. And that something as trivial as anger, will be just a footnote and not your legacy.

AMAAL MALLIK

Amaal Mallik puts his money where his mouth is. More often than he’d like, we assume. But that’s what we love about the guy. For someone so young and incredibly talented, the Bollywood composer-singer, he is a stand-taker of causes he believes in. And he’s honest to the core. And that shows in the one FB post he put up earlier this year (or was it last year?). Saying he wasn’t proud of Gulaabi Aankhen, a re-creation he put out for the film Noor, he went on to admit that re-creations are not going anywhere, that if people remake stuff, they should pay adequate izzat (respect) to the original with their version. Ending with a rejoinder (about the number of song re-creations this year) that had us in splits. The line you see in the image.
The man-at-work “just doing my job”, has a way with words.

ARMAAN MALIK

Known for being immensely quotable on a variety of subjects, the young superstar singer is known for his often profound, sometimes quirky take on life in general (have you even seen his Twitter page, bruh?). But everybody who knows him, knows that he’s someone who marches to the beat of his own mind, no matter where that takes him. And that’s a trait worth having.
An inspiration/motivation to others wanting to excel at doing their own thing, that’s ‘Rising Star’ aka Baba AM for you.

DARSHAN RAVAL

Darshan Raval features next in our series of takes on the biggest Bollywood singers today with their most headline- worthy quotes/outbursts/lyrics that are relatable to the people who know and follow them. Inspired by Nike’s ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick.
For someone so immensely popular, he has a sorted head on his shoulders and we’ve come to know the guy as one of the most rooted (and rooted for) artists around. A gentleman to the core, he’s got a warm aura about him and has the ability to put you at ease if you meet him, something anyone who has met him, can vouch for. And how can we not talk about his fans. There are fandoms and there are the Darshaners. Trust us, you’ll find very few Indian fan armies (the Armaanians on Twitter, for one) like this. You know we love you, #BlueFamily.
And so, this one is about all the late-night live conversations DR is known for. We know you’ll relate. The line in the visual, of course, is from Mitron’s Kamariya.

SONU NIGAM

Sonu isn’t on social media anymore. But he was actually quite active on Twitter at one point. Back in mid-2017, he put out a series of tweets expressing annoyance at “forced religiousness”. You know the details of this story, so we’re not going into it here. All we’ll repeat here is that a cleric stoked a controversy offering a reward of Rs 10 lakh for anyone who’d shave off the singer’s long locks, put a garland of old tattered shoes around his neck and tour him around for his comments. To expose the cleric’s “fanaticism”, Sonu tonsured his own head and asked the cleric to keep the money ready. Of course, which never happened.
The incident showed that Sonu was ready to go to an extreme to prove his point peacefully. What stayed with us, was his greeting: God Bless Everyone. We end it at that.
