Humming on an island
From his Bombay Vikings to Bollywood hits like Love Mera Hit Hit and the recent Character Dheela Hai, Neeraj Shridhar has come a long way
From his Bombay Vikings to Bollywood hits like Love Mera Hit Hit and the recent Character Dheela Hai, Neeraj Shridhar has come a long way. He tells CS about five of his songs that would keep him company on a lonely island:
>> Woh Chali Woh Chali definitely tops the list. This was my first song, which gave me an opportunity to travel all over the world. R D Burman is my inspiration and to take my first ride on his song was the most beautiful experience.
>> Prem Ki Naiyya from Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani. It is a soft melodious song. The lyrics of the song are striking and soothing.
>> Next is Hare Krishna Hare Ram from Bhool Bhulaiya. It is close to my heart as it established me as a singer in the film industry.
>> Songs from Love Aaj Kal -- Twist, Chor Bazari and Aahun Aahun -- for their sheer entertainment value. Twist became the most popular dance number. It's so peppy that it always brings a smile on my face.
>> And last but not the least, Character Dheela Hai from Ready. The song has been picturised so well. The lyrics are different and catchy. It is one of the cult songs of recent times.
