Born to sing
Upcoming singer Pragya Dasgupta says her singing style suits Telugu cinema better than Bollywood
Ever since she was a child, Pragya Dasgupta has had a passion for singing. She completed classes in Indian classical music and Ghazals, and started her career as an RJ with Big FM and Radio Mirchi. In between her shows, she used to sing.
She began to believe in her dream when people appreciated her talent in singing. In Bollywood, she did background singing for films such as Hasee Toh Phasee and Action Jackson, among others. She made her debut in the Telugu industry with Mehbooba. At first, she was signed for one song but ended up getting two.
Pragya says she is fond of South Indian languages and South Indian music. “I feel my singing style suits Tollywood more than Bollywood, and my favourite singer is Geeta Madhuri. I love the songs from Pokiri and Super. I especially like the melodious songs which most of the South Indian directors prefer too.”
Recounting her experience with music director Sandeep, Pragya says he is a perfectionist who makes it a point to get the best out of every artist. “My experience with Tollywood has been amazing so far,” signs off Pragya.
