MUMBAI, Jan 14:
Actress Shruti Haasan has sung a recreated version of “Ranjha Ranjha” from ‘Raavan’ along with Academy award winner A R Rahman.
Shruti says singing the song, originally sung by Rekha Bharadwaj for the Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer, was a gratifying experience.
She lent her voice for the song at Royal Stag Barrel Select MTV Unplugged Season 6.
“As a singer and musician, I enjoy challenging myself to push the boundaries and keep trying to do something new. The song ‘Ranjha Ranjha’ is an unconventional choice for me I would think, especially in a setup like Unplugged,” Shruti said in a statement.
“But when it came from Rahman Sir, who I’ve looked upto, I knew I had to just flow with it. Singing live and keeping up with an entire orchestra was incredibly exciting and extremely gratifying,” she added.
The actress, who will soon turn 31, said she cherished singing with the “Tamasha” composer as he is “one of my biggest musical influences.”
Apart from this, Rahman performs songs like “Enna Sona”, “Mann Chaand Re”, “Aise Na Dekho” and “Tu Hai” from “Mohenjo Daro”.
