Can’t sing classical songs, I like to rap: Sonakshi
Actor Sonakshi Sinha says she will not be able to sing classical songs as her voice suits hip-hop and rap numbers.
“I know I won’t be able to sing all kind of songs. I won’t be able to sing classical song that has nazakat, harkat, as I am not a trained person,” said Sonakshi. The single Aaj Mood Ishqholic Hai, released last week by T-Series, showcases Sonakshi’s rapping skills. The song has music by Meet Bros and lyrics of Kumaar.
“There is one genre that suits me, my voice. I like to rap... Rapping is something I enjoy, that comes easier to me. There was trial and error but we did it. I want to sing more,” she said. The Lootera actor says she will continue singing songs in hip-hop and rap style as that are her forte.
“May be there will be little deviation. It will be songs that I will be able to sing. I will be true to myself, I will not try and deviate and do something else. This is something I like, take it or leave it,” she said.
The actor says singing was always her passion and she wanted to learn it formally as well.
“I was always passionate about it. When any new song used to come...I used to get the set up of a music system, get mike, would download and learn the lyrics. It was always easy for me to grasp music than grasp stuff from my textbook,” she said.
“My mother even got me a teacher...he came home. He gave me one lesson and after that he did not come back. So, my dream of learning it remained unfulfilled,” she said.
Sonakshi earlier rocked the stage of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Weekend and Awards by singing.
“During ‘Lootera’, I told Vikramaditya Motwane to let me sing a song but he did not. I performed and sang on stage for IIFA, I enjoyed it. This time I felt I need to do something about it (singing),” she said.
