‘I’m still known as the Humma girl’

Hindustan Times ST (Jaipur) - Hindustan Times (Jaipur) - City - - Time Out - Shreya Mukher­jee

Shashaa Tiru­pati con­sid­ers The Humma Song from OK Jaanu as her first song in Bollywood, de­spite start­ing her ca­reer in the in­dus­try with songs in Bumm Bumm Bole (2010), and Turn­ing 30!!! (2011). She shares this is be­cause it was the re­hashed ver­sion of the track orig­i­nally com­posed by AR Rah­man, which got her fame. “Even af­ter singing sev­eral songs in Bollywood, I didn’t get the pop­u­lar­ity that Humma Humma gave to me. Af­ter it re­leased, I started get­ting more of­fers from the in­dus­try. The re­sponse I re­ceived from mu­sic lovers was also over­whelm­ing. I am now known as the Humma girl,” Shashaa says, adding that she was happy when Rah­man, whom she con­sid­ers her men­tor, also en­joyed the way she sang the song. On the trend of re­mak­ing old hits in Bollywood, she says “Any song that sounds in­ter­est­ing, works for me, even if that means re­vis­it­ing an old song. But as an artist, I think that we should make new songs,” adds the singer.
