Nagarjuna Turns Singer
A month away from his 57th birthday Nagarjuna has crooned a song for the first time. Entitled Kotha kotha bhasha, the number is composed by AR Rahman’s son, Ameen.
Enthuses Nag, “Would you believe,Ameen has composed this catchy peppy number, is only 10! When I heard it, I was immediately hooked. It’s catchy and young, I just couldn’t stop humming it. The composer Roshan Salur heard me humming it. He said I sing well. And why don’t we record the number in my voice. I decided, why not?”
This is Nag’s first attempt at singing professionally. “We are all bathroom singers, right? What I enjoyed the most about my singing debut was its suddenness. No one, not even me, had an inkling of this. I just went to the studio and recorded and had fun. The bonus is, my fans enjoyed my singing. They were delighted by my unexpected gesture.”
For now this is all the singing that Nag will do. “Please! I am getting repeated requests to sing more.I did this song because I loved its young spirit. Plus, it is composed by a child prodigy. Most of all the song is part of a film Nirmala Convent which I am producing. I’ve tremendous faith in this film. Nirmala Convent, as you might know, is a much revered institution in Andhra Pradesh.”
