‘Kudiye Ni’: Aparshakti Khurana debuts as singer-composer-lyricist with Neeti Mohan
Aparshakti Khurana, who you have so far known as an actor, debuts as a singer-composer and lyricist with his maiden single ‘Kudiye Ni’. Interestingly, the video of ‘Kudiye Ni’ has been directed by his sister-in-law Tahira Kashyap. This is Tahira’s next directorial after her short film, ‘Toffee’.
You will be surprised to know that ‘Kudiye Ni’ was composed and written in exactly five minutes when Aparshakti was shooting for ‘Dangal’ in Delhi four years ago. The second directorial of Tahira is a simple song where the boy and girl meet at a common friend’s wedding in Chandigarh and indulge in light banter.
“You could even call it a musical love conversation between the two,” quipped Aparshakti. Besides Aparshakti, the song features actor Sargun Mehta in the video. It has been sung by Aparshakti and the very talented Neeti Mohan. Check out the song right here:
Further talking about his debut single, Aparshakti said, “I took time to bring this song to the listeners and viewers. I was looking for the right window, the right person to direct it and the right platform and the label to release the song, the right co-actor to feature in it and the right person to render female vocals for it. Who better than a versatile singer and family friend Neeti Mohan? That’s why it took four years. I believe everything happens at the right time. I did not want to come out with this single in a hurry for the heck of it.”
Director Tahira pointed out, “Aparshakti came to me with the song and said we have to shoot this video in the next 10 days and I was like okay, let’s do it. Suddenly, we were told the shoot has been preponed by 4-5 days. Here, I was thinking this is my debut effort and am going to do a full-on prep but next thing we know we were rolling. It was complete madness but all of us had fun putting together the video.”
Strangely, although Sargun was finalised to feature in the video months ago, the actors had to wait for three months to shoot it because they just couldn’t lock a date when both of them were free on the same day. Laughing at the memory, Sargun said, “Now also if someone asks for my dates, I can only give them dates in September, not before that but yes I enjoyed working in ‘Kudiye Ni’ because of the raw vibe and experimental streak that Tahira brought with her.”
From the looks of it, the song looks lovely. Stay hooked onto Bollywood Bubble for more such inside stories and gossips from Bollywood.
