Dreams of a Teen
ACTRESS, writer, painter and singer, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi might have been making headlines in the past few months for her forthright comments and the controversies they generate, but it is her and her ex-husband Shekhar Kapur’s daughter Kaveri, who is slowly stealing the limelight from her famous parents, and it is definitely for all the right reasons. Believe it or not, the 16-year-old is already writing songs, singing and composing music for her songs! She has already had two smash hits, Did You Know and Half a Heart, and has recently launched her third single, titled, Again. Kaveri, who reminds us of a younger Suchitra in her Dole Dole days, started her singing career at the extremely young age of six and recorded her first single at the age of 12. Her debut song Did You Know was a massive hit and gained a lot of love and support from the audience. This talented young artiste is not only trained in Hindustani classical music, but also in western classical vocals, piano and guitar. Her latest single is about the complicated journey of an adult and their constantly changing views on love. Kaveri has emphasised on the teenage years and how they affect them both emotionally and mentally. This little singing sensation is writing songs that every person around her age can relate to. She states that with her ever-changing circumstances, song writing has been the only consistent defining factor in her life. Talking about her musical journey so far, the gifted artiste says, “I feel extremely fortunate to be able to sing and pursue what I’ve aspired for in my whole life. I am grateful to my parents for everything—for encouraging me to be totally fearless and do what I really wanted to do, especially my mother, who has been my inspiration throughout. I look forward to growing as an artiste and learn more about music. I look forward to keep writing and doing what I love for as long as I can.” Well, with talent in the family gene pool and the hard work that this teen is putting into her musical career, we are sure Kaveri will keep enthralling the audience and will go a long way.
