Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - An­juri Na­yar Singh

Singer Pawni Pandey (above), who is known for her song Laila Main Laila from the film Raees, says that com­pe­ti­tion in the mu­sic in­dus­try has grown mul­ti­fold with bud­ding singers up­load­ing their songs on the web.

“It’s not easy any­more. With digi­ti­sa­tion, there are so many artists now. This makes it tough to make a mark. Ev­ery­one is work­ing hard to do well. But I be­lieve that there is des­tiny, which works,” says Pawni.

Not just play­back singers but even ac­tors such as Shrad­dha Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Pari­neeti Cho­pra have sung songs for their re­spec­tive films. How­ever, Pawni doesn’t view them as the com­pe­ti­tion. “There are a few ac­tors who can re­ally sing well. But I know they will not make a ca­reer out of this. They sing be­cause it’s their pas­sion. Plus, they don’t sing all their songs,” says Pawni.

Talk­ing about her jour­ney so far, Pawni says, “Laila (pic­turised on Sunny Leone) is my first big hit. My jour­ney has been a roller coaster ride. I’ve learnt so much. But a song like Laila was a dream come true. I wish ev­ery singer gets to sing a song like this at least once in their ca­reer.”

On what’s planned for fu­ture, Pawni adds, “I’ve sung a few songs and the films are lined-up for re­lease this year. Also, I am plan­ing to come out with a sin­gle this year.”
