The actress who considers herself a bathroom singer tries to give a perfect take, under the guidance of music maestro AR Rahman. And we must say the actress has nailed it. Priyanka Chopra, you have competition.
Learning the ropes
"When I was recording with Rahman sir, I messed up a few times but that is ok... it happens. I did not know anything about singing... I did not know how to sustain my breath, but later on I learnt with the help of Rahman sir," said Alia.
How she got the offer
"I think Imtiaz heard me humming a tune on the sets and he might have discussed this with (AR) Rahman sir," shares Alia.
And why she accepted...
“It’s a soft song and I like soft, mellow numbers. Probably that’s why I sang the song. But, I was really nervous,” says the actor.
Will she keep singing?
“I am a bathroom singer, to be honest. I am not looking to sing professionally or anything,” added the Student of The Year actor.
Industry reactions are also not bad...
Karan Johar: my darling!!! You sing so beautifully... chalo... I atleast have one singer on my side...(wink...wink)!!!
