Kumar Sanu: Have Memory Associated with Every Song I Sang for Nadeem-Shravan

Kumar Sanu: Have Memory Associated with Every Song I Sang for Nadeem-Shravan

Playback veteran Kumar Sanu is not against the current trend of remixing old songs, smd he says he likes a remixed number even better if the original voice is retained. He also opened up with nostalgia on his association with composers Nadeem-Shravan. “I was never against remixes. There are some songs that the new generation does not even know who had composed the music or who had sung them. They get to learn about it through its remix, which is a plus point. Secondly, remix is not bad if the lyrics and composition are kept intact and only the arrangement is changed. Also if a superhit song is remixed and the remix also becomes popular, it is certainly a plus point for today’s music directors and producers. It is good for everyone,” Sanu told IANS. Kumar Sanu Urges Everyone To Help Each Other in the Tough Times of COVID-19 Pandemic.

Quizzed if he is personally fond of remixes, the singer replied: “Personally I like remixes when the remix of a song also features its original singer.” Sanu became popular in the nineties, particularly singing romantic numbers that reigned that charts back then, and among his biggest hits were songs he recorded for Nadeem-Shravan, starting “Aashiqui” in 1990. Shravan Kumar Rathod of the Nadeem-Shravan duo passed away last month. Walking down memory lane, Sanu recalled how he has a special memory with literally every song he sang for them. Shravan Rathod No More! Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Kumar Sanu Mourn The Loss Of The Composer To COVID-19.

“Music composer duos like Nadeem-Shravan are rare and Shravan ji’s demise is a great loss for our industry. I have so many memories with them. Shravan ji was a soft spoken and jovial person, and loved me a lot. They used to call me Tiger. I have a separate memory associated with every song I sang for them, the shows we did together, the tasty food I had at their place, the tips they shared to help me during song recording. I remember how, at times, they would try to make a song a little tougher with a classical touch while I would try to make it easier, and how we celebrated after every recording was completed. These are the things which keep flashing in my mind now,” Sanu recalled.

Any Nadeem-Shravan number close to his ? “Every song I have sung for them is special to me. Their songs used to have melody and good lyrics, for which people remember me. One song, ‘Zindagi ki talash mein hum maut ke kitne paas aa gaye’, from the film ‘Saathi’ — it’s a meaningful song and really close to my heart,” revealed the singer. Times are difficult especially when the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc in India and the veteran singer suggests everyone to get vaccinated at the earliest.

“I have completed my second dose of the vaccine. It has been 12 days since I took my second dose and I haven’t experienced any side effects, which people are talking about, like pain or fever. Everybody should get vaccinated. It is good for you,” Sanu suggested. What is it that he is missing the most being stuck at home during lockdown? “I miss live concerts and recordings. I enjoy doing live a lot and am definitely missing it,” informed the singer.

Neena Kulkarni: I Have Been Fortunate Enough to Get Interesting Work

Veteran actor Neena Kulkarni says she feels blessed that her filmography comprises characters that have stood the test of time. The 65-year-old actor has been part of the entertainment industry for four decades with a great body of work spread across mediums, including theatre, TV, cinema and OTT platform, both in Marathi and Hindi. Some of her noteworthy performances include theatre presentations “Mahasagar” and “Dhyani Mani”, TV shows “Ados Pados”, “Yeh Hai Mohabbatein”, National Award-winning Marathi film “Shevri”, Priyadarshan’s comedy “Hungama” and veteran British actor Judi Dench-led “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”. Photo-Prem Trailer: Neena Kulkarni’s Identity Crisis As She Searches for a Perfect Picture Looks Amusing (Watch Video). 

“The roles that I have played have been timeless. There may be some quintessential characters, but otherwise I have been fortunate enough to get interesting work. I am glad I have played timeless parts,” Kulkarni told PTI in a Zoom interview. On OTT she has acted in the Amazon Prime Video series “Breathe” and Marathi film “Photo-Prem” that released on May 7 on the same platform. It is the strength of a character — be it of a mother or wife — Kulkarni said, that drives her to select a project. “After all these years, I look for characters that are strong, unique in a way. In case of ‘Photo Prem’ I the journey was very interesting and hence said yes to it,” she added. Neena Kulkarni Says, ‘Marathi Films Are Always Ahead of the Time’.

Directed and co-written by Aditya Rathi and Gayatri Patil, the movie follows the journey of a housewife named Maee (Kulkarni) who tries to overcome the fear of camera and click a perfect picture so that her family remembers her post her death. The movie with the theme of death and afterlife but with a dash of humour. Co-director Patil said a chance encounter with a woman in her 50s, who arrived all decked up at a photo studio to click her pictures, and the experience of her own grandmother having an old picture led to the germ of the idea for the film.

“Whenever you look at photos of grandparents they have white hair, no teeth, and wrinkles. There is so much more to them than just looking like this. I would feel so sad and bad about this. “My grandmother too in her photo had wrinkles and was looking old. I felt she should have taken more pictures when she was beautiful and full of energy. So these two thoughts combined and the story came about,” she said. Rathi added that the challenge was to deal with a subject like death and yet maintain an easy vibe.

“When we started observing such photos, they seemed dangerous. Also, when someone dies the exercise with ‘where is the photo?’. You start calling relatives, get group photos, you edit it and get it printed. We found fun in this journey,” he said, adding, when he lost his the family did have a photo that brought out his personality. For Kulkarni to explore this journey of a typical housewife, who is taken for granted and suddenly becomes excited about getting her own pictures, was pure joy.

“Because she is observant she saw how a family was looking for photos after a death in the family. I found her world interesting,” the actor said. Produced by Everest Entertainment, the film also features Amita Khopkar of “Lai Bhaari” fame and Sameer Dharamadhikari, best known for his work on the TV show “Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat” and Marathi movie “Nirop”, in pivotal roles.
