Brijesh Shandilya (along with Swati Sharma) continues to win awards including the recent GiMA Wizcraft Honor 2016 for Best Duo/Group for his song Banno Tera Swagge (‘Tanu Weds Manu returns’). “I would like to thank Anand L Rai for giving me the opportunity to sing in the film and the audience for appreciating my song,” says Brijesh.
The singer later crooned for other hit numbers like Saddi Hobby Jhappiyan Paani (‘What The Fish’), title song of ‘Jai Ho’, Main Nachan Nu (‘Air Lift’), etc., and even won praises from Shah Rukh Khan. “When I met Shah Rukh Khan at an award function I got nostalgic and recalled all my childhood memories.
I still remember his advice. He told ‘there’s magic in my voice and not to leave my roots and originality, and I have a bright future’. I was just listening to him with moist eyes.” The reticent singer is thrilled to debut in South. He crooned the title track in the Allu Arjun-starrer ‘Sarrainodu’ and is ecstatic that the racy number is topping the chartbusters.
“I always want to debut in South with a fast and energetic number and I’m thrilled to croon for Allu Arjun who is one of the best dancers. I recorded the peppy number in just 40 minutes. Initially I was nervous but thanks to the lyricist Ramjogayya Sastry and composer Thaman. Both of them explained me the situation of the song and meaning of the lyrics and made my job so easy.”
Ask him how different is South from Bollywood , he says, “Both are unique in their own way but my Bollywood hits numbers gave me the opportunity to come to South. It’s a new experience for me and I would love to sing more numbers here.”
