The song ‘Munni Badnam Hui’, which has a place on the background of the film ‘Dabangg’, was performed by Sonakshi Sinha at the 2010 Sahara India Sports Awards. However, not the entire audience enjoyed this delightful song. The original performer, Malaika Arora Khan, did not receive this singing too well.
The latter has been performing this song, and after the film was released and the song topped the chartbuster, Malaika reached success, and was invited to sing at all the major events. Imagine just how upset Malaika got when she heard Sonakshi sing it at this important gala. Sonakshi sang Munni Badnam Hui just as Malaika does, without changing a note.
Everybody else who was present at the Sahara Awards praised Sonakshi manner of singing, and applauded her, especially as this was her first performance. She did remarkably well, and Malaika herself admitted that Sonakshi was great, but could have very easily chosen a different song.
