The forthcoming film
Karthik Calling Karthik
not only marks the directorial debut of Vijay Lalwani, but also launches music director Loy Mendonca’s (of Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy fame) daughter Alyssa as a singer.
When asked about his daughter’s debut, Loy said, “I am very happy. Shankar was handling the department, so he will be the better person to speak on it.”
Shankar, on his part, feels Alyssa is a very talented girl. “But she is extremely shy, therefore she was scared to sing the song. In the beginning, I told her to sing a rough take of the song Uff Teri Adaa...
I know her potential because she is a very good singer and composer. One day when no one was in the studio, I asked her to sing the song as if she is singing for the final take. But I also told her not to think that she is giving the final take. Later when I presented it to Ehsaan and the director, they were very happy.”
The album of Karthik Calling Karthik has six songs and three remix numbers.
The film is about a loser named Karthik (Farhan Akhtar), whose life changes with the help of someone who also claims to be Karthik. The flick also features Deepika Padukone.
