Young singer Akriti Kakar is exuberant! Well, she’s got a pretty good reason to be and that naturally gets her tickled pink! Akriti recently finished recording the revamped version of ‘Meri Desh Ki Dharti’ along with Daler Mehndi, for the upcoming film Kisaan. The original being sung by Manoj Kumar in the film ‘Upkaar’, was a big hit and almost became as famous as our National Anthem!
When we got in touch with the talented singer, she shared, “As a child when I was a part of Kalyan ji Anand ji’s little wonder troupe, we use to sing this one song in all our trips abroad, as well as India and I also remember meeting lyricist Gulshan Bawra, then. Today when I met the duo, I was so nostalgic. At the same time, I feel privileged to have lent my voice to such a historic score.”
We bet that must have been one proud moment for you girl.
