Two Much!

Shashaa Tirupati, whose last outing Humma humma was much appreciated, is back with new tracks. After crooning for Half Girlfriend, Tirupati speaks to Komal Sharma about her growth as a singer and upcoming tracks Barrish and Phir bhi tumko chaahunga 

Sashaa TirupatiShashaa Tirupati was over the moon when she heard her voice in the background of the film Half Girlfriend. The young singer believes that after singing for a couple of Hindi films, it was
AR Rahman’s Humma humma which changed the course of her career.

That experience set the stage for her, and now Tirupati has delivered two tracks for Half Girlfriend, and is very happy with the outcome. “Barrish and Phir bhi tumko chaahunga, are very different from Humma humma. These songs have more romantic tones whereas Huma huma was bold and sexy. When I heard my voice for the first time in the background of the film, I couldn’t control my joy. When Shraddha Kapoor’s character is being introduced in the trailer, it is my voice in the background. I couldn’t have asked for more. My voice has been extensively used throughout the film as part of the background score,” says Tirupati.

Working with the team of Half Girlfriend was a cheerful experience for the young singer. “Mithoon, the music director of the film, is also very happy with the way I have delivered the songs and everyone in the team including director Mohit Suri as well as Chetan Bhagat liked the songs.”

“Even Shraddha Kapoor appreciated my efforts and loved the songs. Suddenly, my fan following rose to another level, and within a week, I received more than 40,000 ‘Likes’ on Facebook,” says Tirupati.

On working with Arijit Singh and Mithoon, she reveals, “Arijit is like a guru. I usually listen to his songs with a learning ear. He is so perfect in his art; he is one of the few singers we have in the industry who has the ability to pick up any genre and style of singing. When Arijit heard my song, he complimented me on his social media and, to be honest, receiving a single compliment from such a talented singer is a huge deal for me. I was on cloud nine.”

In contrast, Tirupati says Mithoon is very critical and a perfectionist. “He is very honest towards his work, and if he thinks something is not working, he is vocal about it. He never sugar-coats anything. He is very conceptual in his process of making music and at the same time very proactive. He lets you do your things as long as it brings out the essence of the song to the fullest,” the singer shares.

Tirupati is eager to swim in deeper waters and experiment with the tone of her voice. On her wishlist of people she would love to work with are Vishal Dadlani, Amit Trivedi and Pritam.
