Biography

Singh got his break in the movie "Karma" in which he sang few lines, then he did a Madhuri Dixit film called Khilaaf, in which he sang the hit song "Aa ja sanam". But the singer himself realised that something was missing in his voice, took a sabbatical and left Mumbai to tour England and America to see, hear and understand the various forms of music. After this broadening of his musical horizons, he returned to Mumbai to kick-start his musical career.

His first effort in Hindi films, Aaja Sanam, went largely unremarked, even though the music carried the names of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Then, along came Dil Se. A. R. Rahman used Sukhwinder for "Chaiyya Chaiyya".
