The song ‘She’s on Fire’ from ‘Dhaakad’ has set the internet on fire…
It has been amazing. The moment this song dropped, the internet was flooded with messages and comments and my social media was flooded with tags and so many people sharing the track. It was overwhelming to receive such a positive response from fans and they really appreciated my singing and how well my voice fits Kangana’s character. I am super thrilled to have collaborated with Badshah and Kangana on this.
How did you come on board for the song?
Like usual, it started with a text from Badshah that he wanted to record another song in the studio. That’s how ‘Bad Boy X Bad Girl’ and ‘Jugnu’ happened and now ‘She’s On Fire’. He just texted me saying we need to hop back into the studio and record something together. I am grateful to Badshah that he always looks out for artists and I feel really excited that he thought of me during the making of the song. I admire his way of working and am quite a fan of his compositions too. They bring out a different side of me.
This is the first time you have sung for Kangana Ranaut…
I have been a big fan of hers since I watched her movie ‘Queen’. It was such a beautiful and landmark film. I am sure a lot of people fell in love with her after that. She is definitely an actor I wanted to sing for and I’m glad it happened through ‘She’s on Fire’. As a playback singer, you don’t really choose who you sing for. Thankfully, I’ve had the opportunity to sing for some fabulous actors and I’m super excited to finally sing for Kangana.
Well recently, I released a single ‘Bura Na Mano Yaara’ and was so motivated with the response! I’m dropping another single at the end of this month. So you can expect a lot more music, as always.
