The 12 Rupees Boy | The Roadside Ustaad | Being Indian


Hi I am Ayushman from Being Indian Few days back we did a social experiment with
Sonu Nigam, where he dresses up like a beggar and goes to the streets of Mumbai, just to
find out how many people will respond to his music If you would have noticed, in that video,
there was this kid who walked up to Sonu Nigam,saying “Uncle please eat some food with this money” And we’ve managed to find that guy…his
name is Shahbaaz and he’s in for a surprise of his lifetime. We are taking him to meet Sonu Nigam
and he has absolutely no clue about it, he thinks we just want to do a meeting, get some
paperwork done. But what is going to happen is Shahbaaz, because of the pure love that he
showed, is going to get to meet Sonu Nigam today. So let’s find out… “Look at this guy carefully!” he’s the
one who gave Sonu Nigam Rs12! Tell us something, lot of users who
watched the video thought that it was fake, we planted you in that video. Did
something like that really happen? I genuinely didn’t know that I gave him
12 rupees. I just put my hands inside the pocket, and whatever amount of money I had, I gave it to him. So now we’ve reached our final destination
and we’re going to have a talk with Shahbaaz and that’s our desination.. How you doing? You’ve given
us so much love, thank you so much. ­Sir you are the one who’s given
me love and I can’t even begin to tell how big a surprise you’ve given me. ­ What’s your name? Shahbaaz Ali Shahbaaz Ali…..so sweet Shahbaaz ­First tell me, how was your experience that day? That was quite normal. The person
is very talented. Infact, I wanted to tell him that his voice is better than Sonu Nigam’s…really…. What was your reaction when you first heard of the video? Who told you about it? Her name is Vaibhavi..she’s my good
friend and colleague. I got up in the morning, was brushing my teeth and I was with my mobile
and suddenly she messaged me; “brother you met Sonu Nigam!!” and I said “what?!?”,
I asked her in a very shocked and surprised manner…I was like what is she talking about. And she said “ya,
you really did” and I asked her “when? I don’t know about it” she said
“I have a pic” and I said “ya. Send me the pic”and then
showed a picture on facebook, I was sitting and you were sitting in front
of me and I couldn’t even recognize it was you! So I asked her “where is Sonu Nigam in this pictue?” she said “ the old guy sitting with the harmonium is Sonu Nigam!” I said “you’re lying!”
she said “No. I am not lying, then she sent me a link and then I came to know, and when you mentioned it, it was as if I had lived my life. A lot of people heard me there, but
nobody/not one person gave me 12 rupees.. only you were the one who gave me. And I value that
a lot and that’s why I framed it and kept it where I keep my awards. Wait I’ll show you…see.. Given by a boy…now I’ll write Shahbaaz, on 20/01/2016 at the roadside shoot in an old man’s getup for Culture Machine for my singing. My god.. Have your mum and dad watched it? I don’t have father..but mum watched it and she’s happy. And my sister, she’s very happy ­I hadn’t expected that in such traffic,
dirt and pollution and in so much cacophony with noise any onewould notice me, but this kid noticed me. I want to hug you again. ­So this was our great surprise to Shahbaaz These people told me that they will
take a small interview but they never took me to any studio. They took me to such a place, that
if I was a heart patient, I wouldn’t have survived today. I will never forget this moment. I feel like
I am in heaven, so I am just enjoying the moment..really ­I would like to take this opportunity
and tell this to people, no matter what you tell, we haven’t faked a thing. This is a
genuine boy, a genuinely nice boy and we are really thankful to him. It was a pleasure meeting you.!!
