Kavita-Krishnamurthy

Renowned singer Kavita Krishnamurthy has given a plethora of chartbuster tracks over the years.

Her song “Hawa Hawai” from the film “Mr India” continues to be one of the most popular tracks that can still make people dance and sing along. The singer has now revealed how the opening lines of the song came to being.

Kavita shared some interesting facts related to the making of the song and how words like ‘Assi-Tussi’ and ‘Mumbasa’ were included in this track.

Talking about the lyrics and the recording of the song, Kavita said: “There is a small story behind this song. Laxmiji had composed three to four words. While I was sitting, Pyare bhai was getting the musicians ready. There were actually four words. When the musicians used to open the door and say ‘Namaste’ to Laxmiji, someone said note down the words ‘Assi-Tussi’, add ‘Lassi-Pissi’. Another said, if there is Hong Kong, there should also be King-Kong.”

“Then finally, at around 1:30 to 2 pm, Javed saab came in and said that last night he felt that ‘Mumbasa’ should be the last word. And that is how the whole thing became an opening intro to the song,” she said.

Kavita is going to be the chief guest in the ‘Dosti Special with Kumar Sanu and Kavita Krishnamurthy’ episode of “Indian Idol 12” on Sony Entertainment Television.

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Grimes have broken up after three years together, Page Six reported.

The SpaceX founder confirmed that he and the Canadian singer are “semi-separated” but remain on good terms and continue to co-parent their one-year-old son, the epically named X A A-Xii Musk.

“We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms,” Musk told Page Six on Saturday.

“It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room,” Musk said.

Page Six first revealed in May 2018 that Musk and Grimes were dating. They welcomed their son in May 2020.

They were last seen together at the Met Gala earlier this month, when Grimes, 33, walked the red carpet alone. Musk, 50, also attended the event but only joined her inside, the report said.

He later threw a starry Met Gala afterparty at hot private members club Zero Bond, where he was joined by Grimes, and the duo were photographed leaving New York together the following day.

But last weekend, Musk attended a party thrown by Google co-founder Sergey Brin’s wife, Nicole Shanahan, alone.
