A R Rahman gave me an identity in music industry: Neeti Mohan
She has sung several hits since making her debut with ‘Ishq Wala Love’ in 2012 but singer Neeti Mohan credits Oscar-winning music director A R Rahman for helping her establish a name in the industry.
“I have sung ‘Jiya Re’ with A R Rahman and it is one of my biggest hits. He has given me an identity and I’m extremely grateful to him and always will be. In 2007, I had auditioned to be one of Rahman’s singers for a concert that he was doing in America and I got through. Since then I have been part of his concerts and it has really been a great experience.” said Neeti.
Neeti said working with Rahman was a dream come true for her and she considers the 49-year-old composer as her guide.
The singer said she feels really lucky that she has worked with almost all the big music directors including Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Pritam, Vishal-Shekhar and Amit Trivedi, in such a short period of her career.
“It is very difficult to get to work with everybody but I’ve worked with almost all the music directors as of now. I feel extremely lucky. Each of them has something unique to teach you. The way they make you sing in the studio, you also get to explore yourself as a singer,” she said.
