On 16 May, YouTube channel Being Indian shared a video starring Sonu Nigam, disguised as a roadside musician. Complete with gray hair, dark glasses, a beard and mustache and tattered clothes, the award winning singer spent the whole day disguised in this way, as a part of a social experiment. During the course of the day, many people stopped and listened to him sing, but one man was a little bit different from the rest.
