In her forty-seven year old career, yesteryears diva, Zeenat Aman sings for the first time in her upcoming web series Love Life & Screw Ups!!! Interestingly, the lines which she has sung in the song has mentions of dialogues from her previous iconic films.
Initially, Zeenat was very reluctant to sing as she is not a trained singer. In fact the music director recorded the song with a professional singer. “But I was not satisfied. As this song is introduction of the persona of Joanna, her character name in the series. And Joanna’s persona is the combination of her memorable, full of life roles like in Yaadon KI Baraat, Heera Panna and Manoranjan.
I wanted that nostalgic essence. Somehow, I convinced her to come to the recording studio and just give a try. We promised her that if her voice is not sounding right, we shall not keep her voice and will get it dubbed by another singer. Surprisingly, in her first take itself, the song got okay as her rendition was totally in sur”, says the director Kapil Kaustubh Sharma excitedly.
Composer Nikhil Kamath adds “I was overwhelmed and surprised by the voice quality and energy she has at this age!” This song is picturized on Zeenat in various episodes.”.
