Singer Neeti Mo­han (right) has been part of the mu­sic in­dus­try for a long time now, but since the last three years she has made a place of her own in Bol­ly­wood. She is cur­rently one of the most sought af­ter fe­male play­back singers.

“I am thank­ful to my par­ents for let­ting me pur­sue mu­sic as a ca­reer. Noone in my fam­ily is a mu­si­cian, so when I won a mu­sic re­al­ity show a decade ago, it was a break­though for me,” says Neeti, who has sung songs such as Jiya Re (Jab Tak Hai Jaan; 2012), Kash­mir Main (Chen­nai Ex­press; 2013).

Neeti was then se­lected to be­come a part of com­poser AR Rah­man’s troupe for a world tour. “Ini­tially, I didn’t know how to ap­proach the mu­sic di­rec­tors. So I just au­di­tioned for Rah­man sir. And in 2012, I fi­nally got a chance to sing my first song, Ishq Wala Love (Stu­dent Of The Year),” she says about the film that also marked Alia Bhatt’s de­but. So did she know that she was singing for Alia? “I didn’t know which film it was for or who Alia Bhatt was back then. The com­posers know what they want from you. So as a vo­cal­ist you have got to trust them and sur­ren­der your­self to their vison. And this is what I did,” says the singer, who has crooned another num­ber — Nazdikiyaan — for Alia for her up­com­ing film.

Ask Neeti which is her favourite genre and she says, “I’m glad I’ve been of­fered songs from var­i­ous gen­res, but I love singing melodies the most.”
