Singer Jaspinder Narula, who is the voice behind songs such as Pyaar toh hona hi tha..., Taare hain baaraati... and Sabki baaratein aayi... is all set to bounce back. “I was busy completing my PHD in music, which I did from DU in 2008. I never run after work. Now, I am working on an International album on gurbani shabads and there are other big things happening that I can’t reveal at the moment,” says Narula.

The crooner, who boasts of a singing career of around 36 years, says that the current crop of singers don’t have it in them. She says, “These days, name and fame is instant. So catching the eyeballs is easy but it is tough to sustain. We never used to market ourselves. I believe my PR is God. I can say for sure that the singers of today won’t be able to last for 36 years like I did. Their career span is far less.” She adds, “The individuality of singers is missing and all sound the same. Richa (Sharma) has tried to copy me a lot. “
