Anwesshaa: Being compared to Shreya Ghoshal makes me more responsible

MUMBAI: Anwesshaa, the singer who was last heard crooning ‘Bol Rahi Hai Payal’ from the film ‘Revolver Rani’ has now sung the song ‘Jalte Diye’ from the Salman Khan starrer ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’. The music of the film is composed Himesh Reshammiya and lyrics have been penned by Irshad Kamil.

“I was recording for the film ‘Kaanchi: The Unbreakable’ when Irshadji heard my voice and he recommended me to Himesh sir. I have known Himesh Sir for a while now as I previously worked with him on the film ‘Dangerous Ishhq’,” said Anweshaa. She revealed that the song took about two hours to record as Reshammiya was composing the track simultaneously.

Often, the singer is compared to one of Bollywood’s most famous voices- Shreya Ghoshal, and instead of being worried about it Anweshaa is unperturbed with the comparison. “Being compared to Shreya Ghoshal makes me more responsible. She is so much more experienced than I am, and is someone who can sing any song in the best possible manner. So being compared to her is actually a good feeling,” she elucidated.

Apart from her track in ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, Anweshaa is also crooning a song in Tamil ‘Nisagaresa’ for the horror film ‘Darling 2’, for which music is composed by Radhan. The brief given to her was that the song is a romantic number, which got recorded in a couple of hours. When asked if she has to undergo special training to get the diction for the track right, she explained, “For other languages I do not need much of training, but I find Malayalam to be the most difficult language, followed by Tamil.”

Anweshaa, who is quite active in the Bengali music industry, is even dubbing a few songs in various other languages. She has recorded for an upcoming film based on the life of Saint Kabir in Kannada. The music of the film is composed by Ismail Darbar.

She also revealed that her pre recording preparations varies from composer to composer. Citing an example of Ismail Darbar she explained, “When you are recording with Ismail sir, there is a lot of detailing involved in the song. He lays emphasis on each and every word, and will make sure that everything is perfect.”

Her upcoming projects include ‘Black’ in Bengali and a few others.
