Duet with Shruthi – Aaj Ki Raat; Movie : Don (Hindi 2006)
Technically, this is my first duet and that too with another blogger. Shruthi, if you guys didn’t know, is a classically trained singer and even does stage shows. Very often, we discuss and gossip about music and at times, I even take tips from her on certain songs. All of my earlier duets were recorded by retaining the original female voice of the song and once, in my desperate attempt to do something different, I also went ‘bisexual’ for chaiyya chaiyya. But this thought of singing with somebody else had always been in my mind. None of my plans worked out because of various reasons and when I suggested this idea to Shruthi during one of our conversations, she agreed without giving it any second thoughts.
Well, as you know, this is not one of those regular film duets but it was fun doing something different and I consider it as an honor to have sung this song along with Shruthi.
Ok, ok, enough of my yapping; listen to the song and, this time, please let ‘us’ know how the song is 🙂 🙂 And, also please read Shruthi’s post here.
Yeah, Don 1 song on the eve of Don 2 release! Now that’s what I call timing!! Well, actually no, both of us have been planning to publish this ever since we completed the song, more than a year that is! We wanted publish the song in both the blogs at the same time, but then, like all the late comers say, everything has got its own time and better late than never!! Oh, there is another reason for posting this now; Shruthi is supposedly leaving the Indian soil in a couple of days and I am sure, with her new role, “Shruthi ko pakaddna mushkil hi nahi, naa mumkkin hoga” !!! 😛 😛 😛
PS : I actually had a huge anti-SRK write up here; almost a page and a half, you know, trying to provide some negative publicity for Don 2. But, decided to delete the whole part since this is Shruthi’s first song over here and I didn’t want all the attention to shift towards that loser SRK. Also because, being a huugge Ex fan of SRK, all those remarks against him would make me sound like I am bashing an ex-girlfriend !!! Not worth it, seriously !! But you know what, I feel much better now; I have managed to reduce Mr. SRK to a mere ‘PS’ 😀 😀 😀
