T-Series has come up with a single with twin sisters Sukriti Kakkar and Prakriti Kakkar, a song which talks about the feelings of today’s youth when faced with betrayal in love. Titled ‘Sudhar Ja’, singing sisters Sukriti Kakkar and Prakriti Kakkar have taken a gamut of emotions and their personal experiences and turned it into a celebratory anthem of sorts.
In Sudhar Ja, Sukriti and Prakriti tell the boys they have had enough and won’t take their abuse anymore and they do it in style. For those who have come in late Sukriti has sung Bollywood songs such as Kar Gayi Chull (Kapoor & Sons), Neend Churayi (Golmaal Again), Pehli Baar (Dil Dhadakne Do) among others. Prakriti has to her credit hit numbers such as Subah Subah (Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety), Hawa Hawa (Mubarakan), Hard Hard (Batti Gul Meter Chalu).
The twin sisters are super excited about their non-film song ‘Sudhar Ja’. Both the sisters have been active with playback singing since 2015. They have composed the music themselves and Abhijjit Waghani has been the music producer on it. The video shot by Robby Singh has spiffy lyrics by Kunaal Verma and features the two sisters in an avatar representing today’s modern woman who will not take lying, cheating and being two-timed lightly anymore.
Says Sukriti, “This song got made very organically. I got a random idea and was humming it casually and that’s how the tune was created. I wanted it to reflect my experiences of growing up years, heartaches and disappointments and issues about dealing with boys.”
Prakriti offers, “Although it is based on our personal experiences of growing up years, we also wanted it to be very relatable. The first test we passed was when the two boys who feature in the video said that they had been there. Subsequently, we showed it to some of our male friends and they also said the same thing.”
Adds Sukriti, “Although the song is from a girl’s perspective, we were very sure we wanted boys to enjoy the song too.”
Both the singing sisters maintain that ‘Sudhar Ja’ being their first single is very special. Says Prakriti, “We are very happy to have done playback singing since last few years but in playback singing we are constantly told to sound a certain way, to match our voice to the actress who will be singing the song on the screen. Here we could express ourselves freely.”
Adds in Prakriti, “We are happy that through this video people will know the face behind the voice.”
Further, the twins recall funny things that happened while shooting the song in Dubai. “Like in a Hindi film, we both forgot our choreography steps at the same time, we both dropped our earrings at the same time, we both sneezed at the same time. It was hilarious for all of us while shooting,” says Sukriti recollecting the madness.
Prakriti adds, “Shooting the song on the first day was very smooth. We wasted a lot of time. The second day we were racing against time to complete the shoot. We had to cancel out flight and book the next flight so that we could complete the shoot of the song the same day. Both of us were slated to perform a gig in Mumbai in the afternoon the next day. We did not get any sleep but we somehow managed to reach in time for our performance.”
Sudhar Ja will release on 21st February 2019.
