Actress Digangana Suryavanshi who has worked in shows like Shakuntala – Ek Prem Kahani , Kya Hadsa Kya Haquekat , Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kate , Krishna Arjun and was last seen in Hemal Thakkar’s Ruk Jana Nahin and will now be seen in a new show Qubool Hai on Zee TV as Karan Singh Grover’s step sister. She has written a book of lyrics in an age where teenagers are figuring out what they want to do with their career. She celebrated her 15th birthday with book launch of English Lyrics titled ‘Waves’.
She says, “It is great to have my book launched on my fifteenth birthday. I started to write songs at the age of five. Initially I wrote them in Hindi but since I was young and did not know how to write, my mom used to write on my behalf. But I never liked someone else writing for me. Once I started going to school, my first language was English, so the only language I could write in was English. That is how I started to write in English! Gradually I started to sing and write both in English as I was also inspired from Miley Cyrus in Hannah Montana. Later on, I did not even realize how and when writing and singing in English turned into a habit. It’s become a part of me and I am highly passionate about it. At the same time, I don’t really think that languages make a difference because ultimately it is about expressing and making people understand what I think and feel and share my point of view. I have also got a song on YouTube which is in English and is written, composed, sung and acted by me. It is titled “I’m missing you”.
Digangana can sing in English and Hindi. “I can write in English, Hindi and Marathi but I prefer to write in English. I already wrote around about 150 lyrics so song writing is something I love to do and I always wished that if I could share my piece of knowledge with the world it would be nice. That is when the idea of the book came in my mom’s mind. We approached a publisher who was convinced and thus my personal diary has turned into a book of lyrics and will reach the world on my fifteenth birthday on fifteenth October.”
