Singer Tulsi Kumar, who had earlier worked on solo albums and singles, has collaborated with singer Palash Sen’s band Euphoria for a single. The romantic song, which happens to be her first collaboration, is titled Is it you? and has been composed by Sen himself. “I have worked with Palash for a film called Kukku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi and it was there that I first heard some of his new compositions. He told me that he needs a female singer for a peppy romantic number and since the song is a duet, he asked if I was interested in working on this project. I really liked the song, so I immediately said yes. We recently finished recording for the number and trust me, it has turned out really well,” stated Kumar. Interestingly, the singer also waived off her fee for this track, since she was excited to work on this project and didn’t think much about the payment. This also happens to be the first track that Kumar will be singing for Universal Music. She mentioned that a music video for the song is on the cards and will be shot very soon. Kumar quipped, “If all goes well, the song should be out by the end of March.”
Sarah Jane Dias turns singer for her next
Actor Sarah Jane Dias, who will be seen in films like O Teri and Happy New Year, is taking singing lessons these days, for a reason. Sources close to the actor suggest that she will be lending her voice for a few tracks in an upcoming film. When contacted, Dias confirmed this but refused to divulge details about the film or its title. Interestingly, sources also informed that she is undergoing rigorous training for both singing and contemporary dance since a month.
Main Tera Hero/ Not impressive
These days, most Hindi film albums seem to be incomplete without a club number. Drama queen, Sunny sunny, Dhat tere ki among others were just a few recent additions to this genre. The first song of Varun Dhawan’s upcoming film Main Tera Hero, Besharmi ki height, has joined the bandwagon and it turns out to be a melange of all popular club tracks that we have heard in the past. The opening piece itself will remind you of Subah hone na de and then, several ‘been there, heard that’ tunes follow. Sajid–Wajid’s composition has zero novelty factor and the lyrics penned by Kumaar sound dated (it can’t get cheesier than ‘ek tu, ek main aur ho dim dim yeh light‘). Benny Dayal and Shalmali Kholgade do a decent job as usual, but their duet sounds straight out of Phata Poster Nikhla Hero‘s Hey Mr dj. Skip this below average song and listen to your other favourite club tracks instead.
