Reliving old days

All Smiles: Akriti Kakar

Akriti recently finished recording the revamped version of Meri Desh Ki Dharti along with Daler Mehndi, for the upcoming film Kisaan. The original being sung by Manoj Kumar in the film Upkaar, was a big hit and almost became as famous as our national anthem.

The talented singer says, “As a child, when I was part of Kalyanji Anandji’s little wonder troupe, we used to sing this song in all our trips abroad as well as in India. I also remember meeting the lyricist Gulshan Bawra then. Today when I met the duo, I was so nostalgic. At the same time, I felt privileged to have lent my voice to such a historic score.” We bet that must have been one proud moment for you girl.
