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.
