My career in Bollywood has been qualitative and many also refer to me as being picky about the kind of songs I choose to lend my voice to. As an artist I feel truly satisfied with this philosophy I follow. Only when the lyrics touch my heart I feel connected to the song.
After Tum Hi Ho Bandhu from Cocktail I was offered songs that did not seem to match the chords of my heart. But a call one evening from the supremely talented director Ram Madhvani was something I am grateful for. He wanted me to sing Jeete Hain Chal for his dream project Neerja. When he read out the poetry written by Prasoon Joshi to me, I had tears in my eyes. The accentuating inspirational feel throughout the song was something I instantly connected with. Vishal Khurana, the music composer of the song made me hear the melody and I was left with a flush of emotions.
Jeete Hain Chal from Sonam Kapoor starrer Neerja is another song I am ecstatic about. The film that narrates the story of Braveheart Neerja Bhanot who sacrificed her life while saving numerous others releases on February 19th 2016. Eagerly waiting!
Signing off with the link of the song. Would love to know how the song makes you feel!
