She sang for Chennai Express and English Vinglish, but we didn’t recognize her as her she landed her break in Shankar’s film I which will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Canadian Natalie Diluccio will be seen singing Aila Aila in a duet with Aditya Rao. The song featuring Amy Jackson and Vikram has been composed by A.R. Rahman and its lyrics have been penned by Karky.“The song is a dream sequence between the hero-heroine and even has references to advertisements,” described Diluccio.
Diluccio also worked with A.R. Rahman on the background score of the Mani Ratnam’s Kadal. “The song changes every 20-30 seconds, it has bhangra, opera, techno, choir and a tinge of jazz.” These words don’t come as a surprise as Rahman’s work has always been path-breaking. “Hes very open minded and puts no limitations on the singer.” Diluccio also reveals a lighter side to the maestro and mentions how they would joke about who’s Hindi is worse.”
“When I learnt western classical music, I sang in different languages. Tamil is more challenging than Hindi and Marathi too as it also has many sounds that require you to use your tongue.” The multilingual songstress will next be singing a song with Shankar Mahadevan in Subodh Bhave’s next and will also be heard in Rhythm, directed by Vivek Kumar.
