Was an ex­pe­ri­ence to sing for SRK: Aa­man Trikha

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Rishabh Suri

Singer Aa­man Trikha (right), who started his ca­reer in Bol­ly­wood with the hit song Go Go Govinda (Oh My God, 2012), is con­tent with the way his ca­reer is shap­ing up. His lat­est song, But­ter­fly, in the up­com­ing Im­tiaz Ali di­rec­to­rial Jab Harry Met Se­jal is climb­ing the charts. What makes it more spe­cial for him? The song has been pic­turised on su­per­star Shah Rukh Khan.

“I have been work­ing with Pri­tam da (mu­sic com­poser of the film) for a long time. Last year, he gave me the hit song Jaane­man Aah in the film Dishoom (2016) says Trikha. “We also record songs reg­u­larly. One day when he called me to his stu­dio late at night, I was ex­pect­ing the usual stuff. But then he told me that the song I was go­ing to record is for Shah Rukh, I was over­joyed.”

The 30-year-old, who has also sung for ac­tors such as Ajay Devgn in Son Of Sar­daar (2012) and Ak­shay Ku­mar in The Shau­keens (2014) says that singing for Shah Rukh is an ex­pe­ri­ence in it­self. “When you sing for SRK, you have to get into his char­ac­ter, adapt his man­ner­isms, and vi­su­alise how he ex­presses him­self on-screen. His char­ac­ter Harry in the film is a happy-go-lucky guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. I had to get into that mode while singing,” says Aa­man.

The singer feels that his strug­gle in the in­dus­try has made him what he is to­day. “Life has come a long way, since the time I used to visit each mu­sic com­poser, just to make them hear my voice. As an out­sider in this in­dus­try, you have to give your 300% to achieve any­thing,” he says.
