Singer Aalap Raju, who is known for his beautiful tracks like Ennamo Aedho, Engeyum Kadhal and Nenjodu Cherthu (Yuvvh), is a casual guy in real life. The fashion-conscious singer is now all set to do a ramp walk for the first time, that too wearing attires designed by top-notch designers, and is quite excited!

About his expectations on walking the ramp, he says, “While watching ramp shows on television, I used to think what it would be like, walking on the ramp like a model. I wanted to experience the feeling and as if destined, the opportunity to walk in the Kerala Fashion League (KFL) came to me. When they told me that I would be walking the ramp wearing costumes designed by popular designers, I said, ‘Yes’! So far, music has been my life. It is for the first time, I am attempting something different.”

 

Organised by Abhil Dev Fashion Company, Kerala Fashion League will be held on May 27 at Hotel Crowne Plaza, Kochi.

Is he nervous? “No. I am actually thrilled. I know that it is not a joke walking with professionals on such a big show. But I believe that it is all about attitude and translating the elegance of my costume to the audience well. It is yet to be finalised whose design I will be wearing. I am eager to know it and will attend the trials before the big day. However, I am sure that it will be quite an interesting experience. Let’s wait and see what is in store,” he says.

Though he is a Malayali, Aalap became popular through Tamil and Telugu movies. He has sung only a few Malayalam songs, including the song from the album Yuvvh. It was Harris Jayaraj’s songs that made him popular, the recent one includes a song from the movie Yennai Arindhal. “I have sung more songs in Tamil. Harris Sir made me a singer, giving me back to back hit songs,” he says.

Aalap is now looking forward to sing in his mother tongue and to go forward with his independent music projects. A Tamil single of his is also set to release.
