"When we were kids, we used to sing and dance and have lots of fun together. About four years ago, we thought about creating our band," Anusha told IANS at a Fiama Di Wills event at the 15th edition of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week on Friday. She was here to launch the Shine in Style Hanna Montana pack.
"We started talking about it and bring things down on paper and about a year ago we started full fledged work over it," she added.
Their first album titled Teenage has a variety of songs be it bohemian, Punjabi or Hindi. The trio have not only sung the songs but have also written the lyrics.
"We used to pen lyrics whenever we used to get time whether in train or in flights. We like all types of music and we have tried to inculcate it in our album. Our album contains all genres of music be it R&B, Pop, Punjabi, Hindi. We love the fusion, and we are also planning to add Marathi. Every track in our album has a meaning," said Anusha.
The Sudan-born Australian Indian actress, who was also seen in films like Mumbai Matinee and Virrudh, says she doesn't want to be typecast in NRI roles.
"It's not that I have not been receiving offers for films, but I was not comfortable doing them. I am being offered NRI roles and that is why I am not accepting any such roles," she added.
"I am looking forward to doing something challenging so that I can prove that I am not an NRI," she added.
She gave a glimpse of her singing talent as she performed some of the tracks of her album at the event.
