Talking about the song, Tulsi Kumar says, ” Independent music gives an artist creative freedom to define oneself. I wanted to do a single which was in a very different and unique space, something soulful with touching lyrics but at the same time having a pop-rock vibe to it that is relatable with today’s youth. Sachet-Parampara understood my vision and managed to make that happen with ‘Tanhaai’.They both are extremely talented and our energy and vibe really matched so it was a great experience working on this song with them as a team.”
She adds, “When you sing for a film you sing for a character but here in the independent music space, you are the character and you also have the freedom as an artist to be creative, in how and what you want to express through your music. Right from the time I decided to do this single, I had a thought process in my mind and visualization of the video. So right from its making, conceptualizing, to the actual filming, I was personally involved in every aspect along with my director Sneha Shetty Kohli which is why ‘Tanhaai’ is extremely close to my heart.”
Composer duo Sachet – Parampara add, “Tanhaai has been a journey for us. Every song we do, we keep our hearts out on the creation and leave the rest to the audience to decide. We have presented Tulsi Kumar very differently in this song. As far as we know, all of us have never ever seen her in this rigorous rock avtaar ever before… It’s been a wonderful learning experience and many ups and downs while composing this song. Along with the big vision of Bhushan Sir, beautiful lyrics by Sayeed Quadru Ji, smashing vocals by Tulsi Kumar and our music, we will make Tanhaai a milestone.”
Director Sneha Shetty Kohli says, “Needless to say I had a great time working with Tulsi. It’s always amazing to work with an artist who has a vision. My job was to transform her vision into something beautiful on screen for people to connect and Live the artists’ mind for the 5 minutes they give us to watch our work. working on Tanhaai was also a new path for me as I am known for my hardcore commercial dance videos my earlier videos. Tanhaai is a soulful journey for every person who has every been in love.”
