Ranu Mondal repeat? This Uber driver's singing is breaking Internet
Days after Ranu Mondal's singing video broke the Internet, a similar video of an Uber driver from Lucknow named Vinod has left netizens in awe. The video shows him singing Kumar Sanu's hit song Nazar Ke Saamne from the film Aashiqui, a 1990 release. Ever since the 56-second-long video clip was posted by a Twitter user, it has become the talk of the Internet.
It all started after a Twitter user named Gaurav shared the video on September 14. In the caption, Gaurav mentioned how Vinod started crooning when he requested, and left him mesmerized with his talent. "He's an amazing singer," he added, requesting others to "Please watch this video and make him famous." Vinod also owns a YouTube channel, Gaurav revealed.

The video went viral in no time with netizens lauding the "next singing sensation of India." Interestingly, Uber India also noticed Gaurav's tweet, and informed that Vinod happens to be "one famous driver-partner" and often receives admiration for his singing skills. "We're glad to hear this #UberStar's passionate voice being recognized," Uber tweeted, thanking the "good Samaritans" of Internet for the appreciation.

This wasn't all. Even YouTube took notice of Gaurav's tweet, and thanked him for "introducing us to Vinod and his amazing voice." Gaurav's efforts to make Vinod popular seem to have paid off, as he revealed that he even spoke to Kumar Sanu about the same. "I just spoke to Sanu and he had asked me to share this on his WhatsApp," he tweeted.
Meanwhile, the Twitterati can't stop gushing about Vinod, and wants him to participate in television shows. One of the Twitter users wrote, "Amazing voice hai Bhai.. extremely talented.. he deserves a big platform." "We should encourage his talent God bless you my friend," another tweeted.

Before Vinod it was Ranu who became an overnight sensation after a video of her singing Lata Mangeshkar's soulful number Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai at Ranaghat railway platform went viral on Internet. It surely became a life-changing moment for her, as she got a chance to collaborate with Himesh Reshammiya. She has recorded three songs with him for Happy Hardy and Heer.
