Shruti Pathak's new song tops the chart

Bollywood singer Shruti Pathak lent her voice  to the popular song 'Mar Jawaan' from 'Fashion' which still remains a favourite among  many. It's been a decade since and she is now one of industry's leading female singers.

She's back again with 'Soniye Dil Nayi' from 'Baaghi 2' starring Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani. The song has been topping the charts and she couldn't be happier.

She chats with Anila Kurian about her successes so far and what she's looking forward to in the future.

How are you enjoying your success of the new song 'Soniye Dil Nayi' from 'Baaghi 2'?

I'm loving it, especially because it is well-received by many out there.  I keep getting videos of singers who have done cover versions of the song and that itself speaks volumes.

Does social media bring you closer to your fans?

Of course! Social media is a task for me since I am not too active on it, but I am working on that. I feel that it's the perfect way to connect with your audience and know how they feel.

What other Bollywood projects are you working on?

I do have a few songs that will be releasing this year but I can't talk about them till they are finalised. Apart from that, I am also working on my single which will be released in a month's time. I love working on singles as the process is completely different from working for a movie. You aren't bound by the script or the situation; it's just an expression of the work you believe in.

How do you describe your sound?

What matters most to me is the kind of music I grew up listening to - ghazals, classical and semi-classical. I am a trained classical singer so my style is largely influenced by that. I use those elements in my music. For example, my new single, which will be released soon, has a Punjabi-folk-Sufi flavour to it.

Since you are a trained classical singer, is it challenging to sing Bollywood numbers?

Not at all. I believe that if you are trained, you will be able to do justice to any kind of song. Your way of imagining the song also changes. If anything, I think my training as only helped me evolve.

'Mar Jawaan' from 'Fashion' is still trending. How do you feel about that?

I'm very lucky to have sung the songs I have done so far. Many singers still send across cover versions of the songs which I am very happy about.

Would you be impressed if some of your popular songs were recreated?

I wouldn't mind as long as they are done well. I think it's great if someone wants to recreate it because it shows that it's been received well. I will have that sense of pride and happiness. Having said that, recreating songs should not be the only thing we are doing. We should also make new songs.

What's your second favourite passion?

I love traveling and exploring new places.
