Date of Birth : 30 July 1973
Height : NA

Mini Biography :
When Sonu was just 17 years old he moved to the city of dreams, Mumbai in search of work as he wanted to pursue his career in music. Sonu’s parents were also singers and hence he inherited the singing talent. He has two younger sisters.

He started his career singing covers of Mohammad Rafi songs. The song “Accha Sila Diya Tune” from Bewafa Sanam proved to be his big break. At the same time, he started hosting a singing competition on television called SaReGaMa, that became very popular later on. And then Sonu never looked back. His first big hit was “Sandese Aate Hai” a song from the movie Border. Sonu broke his image of a Rafi-sound-alike, after he sang “Dil Deewana” song in the film Pardes and proved his own singing style.
