The young and talented singer, Sukriti Kakar, made her dream Bollywood debut with Pehli Baar, a peppy number from the movie Dil Dhadakne Do.
Kakar’s latest party anthem, Kar Gayi Chull, from Kapoor & Sons became a huge hit, and has crossed 63 million views and counting. In a quick chat, she tells us her musical favourites:
One song on repeat on your iPod these days:
Tere Sang Yaara from Rustom
Five songs in the soundtrack of your life:
Don’t You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia
Listen To Your Heart by Alicia keys
Khwabon ke Parindey from Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara
When you believe by Whitney Houston
Patakha Guddi from Highway
A song you love to listen to when you’re:
Happy and upbeat: Let me love you by Justin Bieber
Really low: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger by Kelly Clarkson
Is there any music you loved as a kid or teenager but now are embarrassed about?
Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Hilary Duff and Hannah Montana. Some of their songs were my ultimate favourites during my teenage years. It’s embarrassing to admit, but I had a phase when I was obsessed with them.
How would you describe your taste in music?
I’m not a very genre restricted person at all. My taste in music varieties according to my moods. Every day of the week, I can drown in different genres of music. I could obsess over my US/UK Top 40 playlist and the next day, I could be listening to Coke Studio all day.
Favourite time and way to listen to music?
Our work and timelines are usually random, so whenever I can squeeze in a couple of free hours, I love to blast new music on my dock in my room. And my earphones are my best friends on flights and during travel.
