There has been a huge change in the soundtrack of Bollywood films along with the change in style and approach of movie direction. The Indie and upbeat song demands of today's era have obscured the music from the 80s and 90s. Meanwhile, the jukebox from the movie Monica O My Darling has become a massive hit all over the country. Since the release, the retro vibe of the songs have captivated millions of hearts.
The task of identifying a voice that precisely complements these kinds of tracks is difficult. After thorough research, music composer Achint Thakkar found singer Anupama Chakraborty Shrivastava to have the ideal voice. And, now Anupama’s undulating voice has swooned the nation. Recently, Anupama discussed her career and how she landed this opportunity in Monica O My Darling.
Anupama mentioned in her interaction with Jay Kumar that she received a call from Achint Thakkar. She recalls, "Achint Thakkar desired a voice that could sing a classic tune effortlessly and convey the same atmosphere. He said- I've listened to a lot of music on YouTube, but all in vain. When I finally chose to turn off my laptop, I heard your voice and knew it was the voice. Achint called me soon after, and then together we recorded the song.”
Anupama is back in the music business with a bang with Monica O My Darling. And now she's once more receiving a lot of offers. Anupama did not specifically mention her next projects, but she did make a hint that she will soon be surprising everyone with some brand-new music.
The fantasy to marry Kishore Da
Anupama's voice has enthralled many with its enticing tone. While in the conversation, she talked about her admiration for Kishore Kumar, and also her fantasy to marry him. Anupama added, "I don't remember when I first became passionate about singing. However, if I remember correctly, record players and radios were available back then. I used to listen to them. The first song which I heard was 'Tere Bina Zindagi Se Koi'. This song compelled me to sing. At the time, I was about 9 years old. And Kishore Kumar is my favourite singer. I once had a fantasy that I would wed Kishore Kumar when I was grown. And co-incidentally I got my first break with Kishore Da. I recorded the song 'Phool Ye Kahan Se Aaye Hain' with Kishore Da, but unfortunately that song was later redone with Sadhna Sargam.”
On the closing note Anupama Chakraborty Shrivastava explained why she is less active in Bollywood. To learn the full story of this magnificent singer visit Jay-Ho! The Jay Kumar Show.
