On A High

amitAmit Mishra has given us chartbusters like Manma emotion laage from Dilwale and Sau tarah ke from Dishoom. The singer talks about experimenting with the romantic-Sufi track Bulleya

Amit Mishra has really shone with his latest song Bulleya from Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. On bagging the song, he says, “It was very straightforward. I received a call from the studio and the team. I went to the studio to give a vocal test and, in the process, I got the song.”

The soul-stirring track has been composed by Pritam, “Dada (Pritam) came to the studio and gave me a detailed brief in terms of the notes, pitch, technicalities and the melody. The brief was important because they knew exactly how the song had to be delivered and the energy levels it required. It was going to be picturised on Ranbir (Kapoor) sir, so I knew I had to match his energy,” he reveals.

The song belongs to an alternative rock genre, specifically Indie rock, something the youth will love. “I got a good feeling while recording the song. The lyrics written by Amitabh Bhattacharya were beautiful. It is an amazing track. Bulleya was interesting because it has a very Sufi feel,” he says, adding that this was not an easy rendition as the genre was unique.

About preparing for the song, Mishra reveals, “I got to learn new words and phrases and many other things. Every time a vocalist gets to listen to a new track, it’s like a vocal test for us. It was fun. Team Pritam is hardcore workaholic. Studio sessions bohot mazedaar hote the and at the same time we were focused on our work.”

Mishra says being technically strong is one thing and singing a song is a different experience. Singing over a microphone has its own difficulties. I had to be technically correct. Apart from that, I had to use apt expressions while singing the song. It was fun but I made some mistakes. Bohot daant bhi padi, but unki daant me pyaar hota tha. We had many retakes. They wanted me to improve with this song and also as a vocalist.”

Mishra says he is overwhelmed by the reviews he’s received, especially since he has attempted a new genre. “Bulleya is doing pretty well. I am getting ‘likes’ and feedback on social media. Industry, seniors, mentors and directors are praising it a lot.”
