'Music comes from the air'

Tini Sara Anien, Nov 9, 2012, DHNS

Priyanka Chopra, one of the Bollywood’s top actors is on cloud nine after the success of her single ‘In My City’

High heels Priyanka Chopra.

Never say, never. And that’s what Priyanka Chopra strongly believes in. Ask Priyanka if her acting career has contributed to the success of her single and she admits that ‘it was a huge contributing factor’.

“Acting is what I do, it’s my career. I was always fascinated with music and that’s how this came into being. In In My City, where I worked with will.i.am, I saw how music happens.”

She adds, “Music comes from the air. Someone hums something, and then a beat adds to that, and then the whole making-process follows.” Did she have to work intensely for the single? She’s quick to answer, “For anything to be done perfectly, one has to practice hard and work for it. I was undergoing vocal chord training, even while on different projects.”

Is there a song she would have loved to sing? She smiles, “I would have loved to do
Kolaveri D or Gangnam style, because they were so viral, and so fiercely popular.” Her music tastes are an eclectic mix, which differs from pop to Bollywood to ghazals. “I’m a moody person, and the music I listen to, changes with that,” says Priyanka.  

With an active career in Bollywood, and now her debut into music, what would she like to explore next? She thinks for a moment and says, “I’m still taking baby steps into music. Something I would love to learn, is write Urdu. I’m a strong believer of the need of knowledge and the need to learn new things.”

With Barfi! being a hit and Priyanka having done a challenging role in the movie, she talks about her experience. “Jhilmil (her character) is an isolated, emotional person; she’s happy when she’s happy, angry when she’s angry. And it has changed my outlook towards life. I realise that little things in life matter a lot, and it’s we ourselves who complicate things.”
