Aralutiru Jeevada Geleya holds a special place in my heart: Shreya Ghoshal
The National Award winning singer talks about the iconic song from Mungaru Male and her experience singing for Kannada films
Indian playback singer Shreya Ghoshal, who has won millions of Kannadiga hearts with her mesmerising voice, says she has a divine connection with Bengaluru as she attends the Ganesh Utsava. The singer was in the city today to treat thousands with Hindi and Kannada medleys. Cinema Express caught up with the singer just before she went on stage.
“There is a lot of memory I take back home from this Ganesh Utsava,” she says.
Shreya’s contribution to Kannada industry has been immense. It is interesting to know from the singer herself that she has never had a bad song from the Kannada industry. “Also, the response I get is overwhelming. I feel the people love music and they enjoy every kind of song. I am lucky to have composers giving me the best opportunities,” she says.
Her favourite Kannada song remains Aralutiru Jeevada Geleya from Mungaru Male. “I can’t have any favourites, but I feel Aralutiru Jeevada Geleya is an iconic song and it has been a special part of my life."
Ask her for a tip for upcoming singers, and she says, “No tip. Respect music and the love for art. We create music which touches the heart and it stays and becomes a part of history. All I say is don’t stop learning music and never be complacent in life. Just follow your passion. This is what I have learnt from my seniors.”
