Lucknow: After Ranu Mandal struck gold while singing “Ek pyar ka nagma hai” at the Ranaghat railway station in West Bengal, it is time for Vinod, an Uber driver in Lucknow, to grab attention with his mellifluous voice.
Vinod was humming a song when his rider requested him to sing a full song.
The driver went on to sing Kumar Sanu’s hit “Nazar ke saamne”, the hit number from “Aashiqui” (1990).
The rider recorded the song on his mobile and posted it on the social media.
Within hours, the 56-minute clip went viral with the Uber rider saying: “Met an @Uber_India driver Vinod ji in Lucknow. He is an amazing singer and asked to sing a song for me after finishing his ride. Aur kya chaiye.”
Uber India also noticed the user’s tweet and informed that Vinod is “one famous driver-partner who keeps on receiving positive mentions on our pages for his musical rides”.
Uber thanked the ‘good Samaritans’ of the Internet who appreciate Vinod and his skills.
The video has been viewed almost 7,000 times and garnered over 4,000 likes.
Vinod could well be on the road to success and stardom – like Ranu Mandal.
