Actress Anushka Sharma: Let the girl discover herself

Anushka Sharma

Actress Anushka Sharma has said she grew up in an environment where she was allowed to do whatever she wanted, and hopes every girl can be free and experience life the way she did.

“I have grown up in an environment where I was allowed to do whatever I wanted. My father gave me that. It’s sad that even now in so many homes in India, you don’t let the girl just be free,” Anushka said.

That’s what attracted her to be part of the video of the song “Kudi nu nachne de” from Irrfan Khan’s film “Angrezi Medium”. The song celebrates womanhood.

“This is what the song is saying, to let the girl make mistakes and discover herself. It’s so sad that even now in so many homes in India, people don’t let the girl just be free and be their truest self. I hope every girl can experience that the way I did,” she added.

“Kudi nu nachne de” is sung by Vishal Dadlani, and speaks for equality and respecting a person’s wishes. Bollywood’s leading ladies including Anushka, Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Ananya Panday and Kiara Advani, got together for the special song.

Talking about tune’s relevance, Alia said: “The song is important for today’s generation. It talks about letting a girl be, let her dream, let her achieve and once she does, she will do wonders and take over the world. Just let her fly.”

On what the track means to her, Katrina said: “The song is about celebration of life. Of course, the lyrics say ‘Let Her Dance’ but for me dance is an expression of joy. The message of the song is also about letting a girl express her true self. Don’t tell the girl how to dance… let her express her true herself and the world will be a better place.”

To this, Ananya added: “The song stands for letting the girl sway to her own tunes and I am glad that my parents let me groove to my own beat my entire life. I hope that all parents let their girls dance to their own wish.”

Kiara feels the song is “every single girl’s inner voice. It talks of girls hoping to change the mindset of people, so that they live and let us live, let us be however we want”.

Sharing her fondness for the song, Kriti Sanon said: “I absolutely loved the song; it is not only catchy but also meaningful. I completely relate to it. This song is about freedom. That’s one of the reasons I did it.”

“Angrezi Medium”, revolves around a beautiful relationship between a single doting father, Irrfan and his daughter Radhika Madan. “Angrezi Medium” also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Tripathi, Deepak Dobriyal, Ranvir Shorey and others. The film is presented by Jio studios and Prem Vijan.

Radhika feels “the song is about empowerment. Let the girl dance, let her be and she will make the world a magical place”.

Director Homi Adajania feels there shouldn’t be just one day to celebrate Women’s Day.

“It should be celebrated every day,” he added.

Jio Studios and Prem Vijan present Dinesh Vijan’s “Angrezi Medium”, a Maddock Films production. It is slated to release on March 13.

 Anuradha Paudwal, who has given voice to several popular tracks like ‘Mujhe Neend Na Aaye’, ‘Dhak Dhak Karne Laga’ and many more shares an interesting anecdote from her recording days.

The renowned singer will appear as special guest on the reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. She goes down the memory lane after looking at contestant Anshika Chonkar’s performance on Anuradha Paudwal’s melodious song ‘Bahut Pyar Karte Hai’ from the movie ‘Saajan’.

Revealing an incident from the day of her recording, Anuradha Paudwal said: “Back in those days we used to record multiple songs in a day, so we always were in a motion and our voices were also prone to that. So, one day, while I went for the recording, I was told we would rehearse a bit before the final take of the song, and I agreed.”

“I still remember there were live musicians because it was supposed to be a live recording and I heard the song and went on to rehearse for it. And when it was done, I asked when we would be recording the final one, and to my surprise they said it was done. So, the scratch version of the song that I recorded thinking I was rehearsing, actually went on to be the final song for the film and I had no clue about it,” she added.

Vishal Dadlani, Shankar Mahadevan and Himesh Reshammiya are the judges on the singing reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. The show hosted by Aditya Narayan airs on Zee TV.
