Does he plan to come up with more numbers? “I don’t know. (Filmmaker) Anubhav Sinha (who directed the video of the rap song) keeps telling me that I am coming back to you with another one. I am not a singer first of all, forget trained or untrained. I am not a singer. Yes, I am a good listener to good singing,” Manoj .
“I understand what good singing is all about. I was a theater actor for many many years, and in theatre it becomes compulsory at least to be in sur and in rhythm,” he added.
