For the most part, singer Hardy Sandhu, who will soon be performing at Bollywood Biistro, has no regrets. There is one that he cannot forget, however—despite being told all through his training, he entered the playing field without warming up and got himself injured. It cost him his first dream—cricket. This fast bowler, who played the sport for over a decade, had to give up cricket in 2007. It’s then that Sandhu shifted his focus from sports to singing, and acquired as much knowledge of this field as he could. Cricket may not have worked out, but his albums have surely worked up a storm at the musical box office. With his new song Hornn Blow from the album named the same, the artiste brings a live performance that promises to blow your mind.
Born as Hardevinder Singh Sandhu, it was during his coaching days that his name was shortened to Hardy Sandhu. “My friends came from different cities and found it difficult to pronounce Hardevinder, so it became Hardy. Thank God they retained my last name,” says the singer with a smile.
For his upcoming performance, besides Hornn Blow, Sandhu will also present some of his hits such as Tequilla Shot, Pehli Goli, Kudi Tu Pataka and others. “After Hornn Blow, my next album will be within a month. Another album is scheduled for July or August,” says the singer, adding, “Things are looking good for now. I am at the peak of being extremely self-motivated. It helps me become a better singer and also a better human being.”
May 28, at Bollywood Biistro, 23, North West Avenue, Club Road, Punjabi Bagh, 8 pm onwards. Entry priced `2,500 for a couple, which includes unlimited food. Prior reservation recommended.
