MUMBAI: Shraddha Kapoor, who is known for her acting prowess as well as singing, says she enjoys it when she gets a chance to explore her singing talent while working on a project.
Her singing in Galliyan and Bezubaan Phir Se has been appreciated by listeners. She got a chance to sing her own songs in the musical drama Rock On!! 2 - sequel of Rock On!!
“I am exploring the singing aspect and having too much fun exploring that. Also I feel grateful to Ritesh Sidwani, Farhan Akhtar and Shujaat Saudagar (director) for considering me as a perfect fit for the role. I think it is a rare opportunity for me to sing for a musical,” Shraddha said at the trailer launch of Rock On!! 2.
“I want to go with the flow. It was my childhood dream that I am singing and dancing apart from doing films. I am blessed that I am getting the opportunity to work in good films and playing such lovely characters. I hope this continues,” she said.
The upcoming musical is directed by Saudagar, produced by Akhtar and Sidhwani, and has music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. While Akhtar, Arjun Rampal, Prachi Desai and Purab Kohli reprise their roles from Rock On!!, Shraddha and Titli fame actor and musician Shashank Arora have joined the team for the sequel.
The actor says singing rock songs was difficult. “I am very fond of rock music so I was happy to get to sing my own songs in the film. I hope the songs will receive as much love as the prequel,” Kapoor said. The film will release on November 11.
