‘There is noth­ing that girls can’t do’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Etti Bali

Singer Tulsi Ku­mar and her sis­ter, de­signer-turned-ac­tor Khushali Ku­mar have just come out with their third sin­gle to­gether, which is quite dif­fer­ent from their pre­vi­ous col­lab­o­ra­tions.

“I made the con­cept, did the styling and the cos­tumes... ba­si­cally the en­tire look and feel of the video. The song has been sung by my sis­ter, Tulsi, and I have acted in it. With this video, we wanted to do some­thing in­spir­ing. We were very par­tic­u­lar about the lyrics, in­clud­ing Raf­taar’s rap. I play the char­ac­ter of a girl who runs a garage, which is ba­si­cally a man’s job. So, we have tried to say in a fun way — there is noth­ing that girls can’t do,” Khushali says.

She has strong fam­ily ties and owes her suc­cess to them: “I am blessed to have a fam­ily who’s al­ways given me the right di­rec­tion and the free­dom to choose. But when I look around in our so­ci­ety, there’s a lot of sup­pres­sion. Af­ter this video, I got a lot of mes­sages on so­cial me­dia where peo­ple said the video mo­ti­vated them. This is very en­cour­ag­ing.”

On prepa­ra­tions for the part, Khusali adds: “I had to give up sweets and sur­vive on steamed and boiled food. When you eat right, you are more en­er­getic.”

Fans can ex­pect more from her in the com­ing days, she shares, “There are a cou­ple of sin­gles that I have planned with my sis­ter. A movie project is also in the pipe­line.”
