Siddharth Basrur rocks Bollywood again with 'Baaghi' song

MUMBAI: Mumbai metal outfit Scribe's vocalist Siddharth Basrur continues to create a strong impression in Bollywood with the contribution to mainstream film composition . For the upcoming summer release 'Baaghi' starring Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor, Basrur lends his vocals for the fiery track 'Get Ready To Fight'.

Composed by the promising and young Pranay Rijia, the video song was released on YouTube by T-Series recently. With Benny Dayal sharing the vocal responsibilities, Basrur executes a belter of a song and the video provides a few glimpses of what to expect from Sabbir Khan's third directorial venture. The song falls under the 'rock' genre, and Basrur, the frontman for the now-defunct progressive hardcore band 'Goddess Gagged', through his experience and expertise in the same, effortlessly blends his vocals to Rijia's composition. Basrur's vocals for the chorus act as the icing on the cake for the two-minute long composition (However, the original length of the song for the movie varies).

Basrur has earlier shared the stage with Dayal, but 'Get Ready To Fight' will be the duo's first collaboration for a studio production. "I have a lot of respect for Dayal. The guy has immense knowledge of music, and there's always something new one can learn from him," informs Basrur.

On how he landed with 'Baaghi', Basrur explains, "Pranay and I have been friends for a very long time. We have worked together, but we know each other since a long time." Rijia and Basrur's contribution to the Sajid Nadiadwala produced flick restricts to 'Get Ready To Fight'. "I took less than a day to get the work done, and the freedom provided worked in my favour," added Basrur.

The playback singer's discography began with the 2011-release 'Haunted 3D', and Basrur believes there's more he can offer. "I am planning to do a few Bollywood shows. I do not want to restrict myself to certain things. I understand my limits and I intend to test them. Singing for Bollywood movies is a completely different experience," adds Basrur, who recently collaborated with Mumbai-based songwriter Vasuda Sharma for a refreshingly unique rendition of AR Rahman classic 'Dil Se.'

Would the new venture affect his focus on the alternative music scene? "Absolutely not. Right now, I am working on the first-come-first-serve basis, and I surely have plans with the other band projects," said Basrur.

"I had the good fortune of working with Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Ram Sampath and Clinton Cerejo, and I wish to, one day, work with Rahman sir and Amit Trivedi," says the promising young talent, who took music as a "full-time job" only five years ago.

For someone aware of Basrur's professional growth and his personal fight against elements that could have potentially damaged his career, the singer's journey acts as an inspiration to the emerging talents in the musician space and beyond, in more ways than one.
