Mumbai: Actress Parineeti Chopra is now looking forward to explore her singing ability after doing a melodious rendition of “Teri mitti” from “Kesari”.
“I think now is the time for me to sing more and show people what I can do because I do believe I can sing. I have been trained enough for me to be able to learn and I want to hone that skill as much as I can so that I can sing better and better,” Parineeti said in a statement.
“I would like to come out with tracks that really resonate with youth. I think I will always want to pursue doing very very melodious songs because I have a very husky voice and I think that suits me. Here is a shoutout to all the music directors who are looking for new singers I would like to come and give it a shot,” she added.
Her version of “Teri mitti” has got a good response from the audience and music industry.
A trained Hindustani classical singer, this is Parineeti’s second song after “Maana ke hum yaar nahin” from “Meri Pyaari Bindu”.
“Music and singing is actually the first creative art I actively pursued because I was 3 years old when I did my first live singing stage show. The mike was as big as my body size and I fell in love with singing right then and there.
“I come from a family of singers so I have been blessed and given the gift of having (what they call) sur and taal. While I was growing up, my parents thought that it was a good idea for me to also learn it professionally, so my style of singing is very Hindustani classical because that’s what I learnt from my Guruji, Nidhi Narang.”
Parineeti credits her father Pawan Chopra for boosting her love for music while she was growing up.
“Music has been a big part of my life throughout but obviously I started acting and that’s what really came out in the forefront and not the singing.”
