The singer rates the second song from ADHM as one of the best in his career
Arijit Singh is the only male playback singer in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. There will be no scratches, re-recordings or versions featuring any other singer on the soundtrack. And this was decided, right at the time of starting the soundtrack. According to sources, even Ranbir felt Arijit’s voice suited him.
Arijit admits it is an added responsibility for the playback singer to give voice to an actor when he plays a singer. “I’ve done it earlier in Aashiqui 2, where Aditya Roy Kapur played a singer. Now with Ranbir, I am again giving voice to the character of a professional singer and it’s different, more challenging than the usual playback singing. Ranbir had already shot the title song with a scratch recording. I sat and observed Ranbir emoting to the words. Then recorded my songs.”
The ADHM experience has made Arijit realise how important it is to have an actor understand what he is singing. “Ranbir isn’t just using my voice in the film. He is experiencing and savouring the words, letting them flow into his soul. It’s such a pleasure to sing for him because as a professional playback singer, I know Ranbir’s screen presence will carry my song very far.”
Arijit says he is still recording songs for ADHM. “We haven’t decided on how many songs I will sing for Ranbir. But I can tell you this. Whatever Dada (composer Pritam Chakraborty) and Karan Johar decide, it will all add up to a grand musical experience. And for those who are raving about my first song for Ranbir in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, here’s news. My second song for Ranbir is even better. I rate it as one of the best songs I’ve sung so far.”
Music composer Pritam Chakraborty, who has composed music for Karan Johar's "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil", says that the filmmaker is one of the easiest persons to work with as gives enough space to everyone.
"Karan gives too much space and the best part of working with him is that, though it might look like working on a Karan Johar film is difficult, I think it is one of the easiest because I haven't seen so much clarity in anybody.
"He reacts instantly to a tune and conveys whether he likes it or not," Pritam told a news portal.
"Karan is actually one of the easiest persons to work with and I think he has this tremendous music sense that complements his films," he added.
