Papon on his new track Akhiyan: ‘My first Punjabi single is special’

The singer on his latest hit, Akhiyan, a romantic track composed by Gourov-Roshin and released by Sony Music 

Published: 14th December 2019

Singer Papon recently collaborated with Sony Music on his new track Ankhiyan. The single, ‘a mushy, melancholic song about one-sided love’, is composed by the Gourov-Roshin duo.

The music video, which features TikTok stars Manav and Garima, has clocked more than four million views on YouTube.

“I’ve worked with Gourov and Roshin on some film music before. This is our first single together,” says Papon. “I found the melody of Ankhiya interesting. It is very well arranged and produced. The mood and the vibe is bang on. This is also my first Punjabi single, that too a romantic number. That made it really special for me.”

The lyrics of Ankhiyan are penned by Kunwar Juneja. He has written singles like Baarish Ki Boondein and the film song Aaj Singh Garjega from Kesari. “The lyrics nicely complement the melody and the story,” Papon says of the writing. “It’s also quite simple in its expression so very easy to hum.”

Papon’s recent playback works were for the films Bala, India’s Most Wanted, and Music Teacher (on Netflix). He also appeared in the musical awareness series Express Yourself by Mx Player, where he performed a song on river conservation.

Asked about his upcoming projects, Papon says, “I have a big film releasing in January There are lots of other Bollywood projects lined up as well. We will be announcing them soon.”
