“I want Rs 5 lakh, a business class ticket and lots of other things. Other singers do it for free. I cannot do that. I work hard for my singing and cannot do it for free,” Mehndi said.

The 46-year-old Punjabi pop sensation has sung for ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, ‘Rang de Basanti’, ‘Singh is Kinng’, ‘Action Replayy’ and several other Bollywood movies.

“If I feel there is any need to lend my voice for playback, I will. But if I think I’m being used I won’t go for it,” he said.

Mehndi is a passionate Sufi singer and has also taken an initiative to nurture more talents in this genre of music. Read more on msn.
