Dev wants to sing love songs

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

Singer Dev Negi (left) is steadily emerg­ing as the voice of the sea­son. He has pulled off a feat not many singers can boast of — he has sung for both Shah Rukh Khan and Sal­man Khan in their re­spec­tive films.

“I was over­joyed to have Sal­man bhai lip-sync my song Naach Meri Jaan in his film Tube­light (2017). My next song is for Shah Rukh in Jab Harry Met Se­jal, called But­ter­fly. I have to thank Pri­tam da for both of them,” he says.

The 28-year old, who started his sing­ing ca­reer in 2010, is en­joy­ing the suc­cess of his lat­est song, Sweety Tera Drama for the up­com­ing film Bareilly Ki Barfi.

How­ever, he doesn’t like that the in­dus­try is quick to stereo­type any singer. “In­dus­try mein aapka ek gaana hit hota hai, toh peo­ple think that he/she can sing songs of only that par­tic­u­lar genre,” he adds.

Dev says that though he wants to sing songs from the ro­man­tic genre, he is now ex­pected to sing only up­beat and peppy songs. “I had sung a ro­man­tic song, Ho Gaya Hai Pyaar, for the film Tanu Weds Manu Re­turns (2015). But since my dance num­bers like Badri Ki Dul­ha­nia were a hit, ev­ery­one now thinks my voice is suited bet­ter for them [up­beat songs].
