Singer Shilpa Rao, known for her hit songs like ‘Ghungroo, Kalank, Subhanallah is once again reuniting with maestro A.R. Rahman for a song titled ‘Phuljhadiyon’ from upcoming Netflix movie MIMI featuring Kriti Sanon and Pankaj Tripathi.
The two musicians had collaborated earlier for romantic dance track ‘Ishq Shava’ from ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’, the song had unique soundscape of music for their fans. Shilpa Rao spoke to The Daily Guardian about her experiences working on it.
Shilpa Rao shares,” It is always an immense pleasure to collaborate with A.R. Rehman sir. I had first met him for a shoot and we spoke about about ghazals and eventually did our first song ‘Ishq Shava’ together. It was an iconic huge song because of Yash Ji and Gulzar Sahab, Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, Aditya Chopra and Yash Raj Films were all in one. That’s when AR Rahman sir said that hearing my voice transported him to Egypt and couldn’t believe if it was me or Amar Mahal singing. That was a huge compliment for me and the next day itself I got a call for recording our latest released song ‘Phuljhadiyon’.
She further adds, “It was fun recording at his studio. As a woman, you connect with song as it talks about what a women goes through on this journey of becoming a mom. I feel, it’s high time women should start talking about it, because we never knew what our mothers went through the process of giving birth. The transition and fluctuations that your body goes through. This song address that and perfectly takes us through this journey of birth giving. I would like to dedicate this song to all the women out there.”
