On his 46th birthday on Tuesday, singer Sonu Nigam decided to work out, for the first time in his life.

“So it is my first workout in my 46 years of life. Although it’s not my birthday in New York…hours to go. But since all of you have been wishing me for my birthday according to Indian time…I would like to thank you all for the love and wishes. Thank you God for giving me a blissful life,” Sonu said, sharing a video of his workout in New York.

The National Award-winner has given several hit songs like Yeh dil deewana, Satrangi re, Sooraj hua madham, Har ghadi badal rahi and Abhi mujh mein kahin. Apart from singing, he has also tried acting. He featured in films Kash Aap Hamare Hote and Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani but he failed to impress people with his acting stint.

On the occasion of Sonu’s 46th birthday, many members from the film industry took to social media to wish the Sandese aate hai hitmaker. Grammy and Academy Award-winning musician AR Rahman took a walk down memory lane by sharing a link of the video of Sonu’s Satrangi re song from Dil Se movie. “Happy birthday Sonu Nigam,” Rahman tweeted.
