Sonu Niigaam-Aditya Narayan – the bond that endures

Their mentor-protégé relationship is still going strong

Recently, at an event to launch a music reality show, Sonu Niigaam and Aditya Narayan were spotted bonding very well. Aditya was compering the show and when Sonu joined him on stage, the two immediately hugged each other. Later, during the photo op, Aditya hung back while the cameras clicked Sonu, but the mentor called the protégé forward and posed with him too. It seems these two are not going to let their respective successes and failures affect their friendship. It’s heartening to see that all B-town relationships are not short-term. The first time we saw them bonding was in 2008, during Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs. Since then, both their careers have taken different turns, with Aditya going the Sonu way and trying his hand at acting and Sonu moving to the US to make his mark. But the bond continues even today and still brings a smile to our faces.
