MUMBAI—Their worlds couldn’t be more different. He is a desi, tough guy with a rough-edged personality, who is known for his attitude and for creating intense reality shows. She, a Canadian opera singer, is known for singing songs in Hindi, Marathi, Tamil and Gujarati, and is as easy on the eyes as her voice is appealing to the ears. What happens when these two disparate worlds collide?
Sweet music, apparently!
“Roadies” fame Raghu Ram joins soprano Natalie Di Luccio in a collaboration that melodiously mixes opposites. Beautiful in its simplicity, both the song, a romantic melody composed by Chirantan Bhatt and the video, which is a refreshing departure from “filmy” music videos and hinges solely on the chemistry between the two singers, are mint-fresh.
As for Luccio, her Hindi diction, and the attempt to get better are so transparent that we wish that so many of our homegrown singers tried half as much to get their diction and expression spot-on! Watch the song here.
