It is essential to have the feeling of romance: Shruti Haasan

Shruti Haasan

Q 1. How would you describe the music of Ramaiya Vastavaiya which is a musical?

The songs of the film are very romantic, the kind that you get to hear in films of the 90s. The Atif Aslam track is specially catchy.

Q 2. Being a singer yourself, is there any song in the film that you would have loved to sing?

Not really, the music is beautiful but it's not my genre. I sang a love song for my Tamil film 3 but that was very challenging and exciting because I was playing a 16 year-old. It was also for the first time that I had to change my voice.

Q 3. Any particular musical instrument that enhances a romantic number?

No, I don't think so. It is essential to have the feeling of romance for the number to touch the heart.

Q 4. Can you name a Hindi film whose music has stayed with you?

It would have to be Kaagaz Ke Phool. The song Waqt ne kiya kya haseen sitam is my all-time favourite Hindi song.

Q 5. Which song from a Hindi film you would love to render?

Pareshan which Shalmali Kholgade has sung for Ishaqzaade. It's a lovely song which provides many opportunities to vocally experiment with.

Q 6. Any musical instrument which you cannot do without when you were playing for your band?

My voice is my instrument. I play the piano, but I really just need my voice.

Q 7. Which is your fave musical show?

When I was a kid, my dad took me to watch Stomp in New York and I was blown away. There were actors using dustbins as drums with some merrily dancing to the tunes.

Q 8. Which musical would you love to have been a part of?
