Shoe Shiner singer's heart touching struggle to the Big Indian Idol stage.
He sang while he played in the school ground, he sang elegantly on the temple mound, he sang while shining the shoes and he sang under the falling roofs. He travelled from the streets of Punjab to the Indian Idol stage and bagged into his credit, numerous fans from national and international circuits. A show-stealer of every episode of Indian Idol. Yeah, you guessed it right Sunny Hindustani it is.
Sunny the Shoe Polisher.
Born in the year 1998 in Bathinda, Punjab, this youth icon embraced singing from a very tender age. This school drop out participated in various cultural events during his schooling and later he staged his voice at various local events. Sighting his absorption into singing, his father gifted him a Harmonium and a Tabla. Such an iron shoulder passed away in 2014 leaving Sunny and his mother devastated. Sunny took up his father's occupation of shoe polishing and his mother sold balloons to quench their hunger thirsts.
Shimmering Shoes and sensational voice.
Sharpening His Vocal Folds While Shimmering The Shoes only drew crowd and fans in the little radius around him. Someone important had to notice this mesmerising voice and soon he made his debut in 2014 with "Akhiyan De Buhe,” released by TMC Punjab.
Sunny now was clear that he was meant for more and contested in Sony TV’s show “Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega.” The wheel of time rolled landing him on the rostrum of Indian Idol 11 in 2019.
