Aditya Narayan returns to Bollywood with AR Rahman’s ‘Dil Bechara’ after 7 years
Hugely talented playback singer Aditya Narayan has made a comeback to Bollywood after almost 7 years with ‘Mera Naam Kizie’ from the film ‘Dil Bechara’. Sung by Aditya Narayan, ‘Mera Naam Kizie’ is composed by AR Rahman.

Talking about the song Aditya says, “Mera Naam Kizie is my next Bollywood singing project after a gap of almost seven years so, the struggle is real. One day I got a call from AR Rahman’s studio and they called me for the recording. Rahman sir was there in the studio and he personally decided to record me.”

Thank you @arrahman sir for this beautiful song 🙏🏼 Thank you @castingchhabra, lyricist @amitabhbhattacharyaofficial & my co-singer @poorvikoutish. I am glad to be a part of Sushant Singh Rajput’s swan song, one of the finest young talents, gone too soon. The album is out now. It’s so refreshing to listen to an entire Hindi album consisting of only originals. Please give it all your love ❤️
Describing the recording Aditya says, “Only thing going inside me was that Aditya you have to give your best and enjoy yourself. Later on, when I was informed it was for ‘Dil Bechara’ which is an adaption of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, was my favourite film and starred Sushant and Sanjana I was extremely thrilled. It’s the first time I am singing for Sushant and obviously, at that time I had no idea that it was the final time.”
On Sushant, Aditya says, “As an artist I always really liked Sushant. He had a charming smile on his face every time we met.”
Describing the love for AR Rahman, Aditya said, “Late back when I was kid, I sang for Mr. AR Rahman and I didn’t know what big deal it was to sing for him and then being a grownup I realized how fortunate I was and always kept wondering when I will get the opportunity to sing again with him as a male playback singer in the feature film.”
