How did singing for AR Rahman happen?
I came to Chennai with the intention of doing some quality singing. My search led
me to Pravin Mani, a Canada based music producer, as he calls himself. His main
interest was that I sing in Fla, Emco Latino and Gypsy styles of Spanish
music. I have been learning Spanish for a year now, and am still not fluent at
speaking it but I sure can sing it. Pravin and I cut a demo, and saw that the music
was flowing. Its he who introduced me to AR Rahman.
After Id finished shooting in Hey! Ram, Rahman called me in to sing Shakala Baby
for the movie Mudhavan and its Telugu Okke Okkudu. The song marks a
guest appearnace by Sushmita Sen. I have also sung for Rhythm, a film directed by
Vasanth and also a number in Rajeev Menons Kandu Konden.
