Fun to explore the singer in me, says Shraddha Kapoor
Mumbai, Oct 25 (IANS) Actress Shraddha Kapoor, who is known for her acting prowess as well as her singing, says she enjoys it when she gets a chance to explore her singing talent while working on a project.
Her soothing voice in songs like “Galliyan” and “Bezubaan phir se” has been well appreciated by listeners. She got a chance to sing her own songs in the musical drama “Rock On 2” – sequel of “Rock On”.
“I am exploring the singing aspect and having too much fun exploring that. Also I feel grateful to Ritesh (Sidwani), Farhan Akhtar and Shujaat Saudagar (director) for considering me as a perfect fit for the role. I think it is a rare opportunity for me to sing for a musical film,” Shraddha said at the trailer launch of “Rock On 2”.
She has explored acting, singing and dancing. So what’s next for her?
“Well, I want to go with the flow. It was my childhood dream that I am singing and dancing apart from doing films. I am blessed that I am getting the opportunity to work in good films and playing such lovely characters. I hope this continues”,” she said.
The upcoming musical drama film is directed by Saudagar, produced by Farhan and Sidhwani, and has music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.
While Farhan, Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai and Purab Kohli reprise their roles from “Rock On”, Shraddha and “Titli” fame actor and musician Shashank Arora have joined the team for the sequel.
The actress says singing rock songs was difficult.
“I am very fond of rock music so I was happy to get to sing my own songs in the film. I hope the songs of the film will receive as much love as the prequel,” she said.
The “Baaghi” star added that being a part of the film franchise is a “dream come true” moment for her.
The film will release on November 11.
