We too, can be free to pursue our lives with vigour and passion again, the song imparts. “With an interesting hip-hop rap section thrown in the middle, the song extolls the gutsiness and resilience of the human race, all the while reaffirming faith in the never-say-die attitude that is so intrinsic of every Indian,” avers Vinod G Nair.

“I wanted to create a song that would cheer people up and make them want to dance with joy and abandon,” states Hariharan while adding, “Phir tera Time Aayega is my tribute to the tenacity of every Indian.”

“The lockdown is not just a calamity. It is also an opportunity to find new skills and aptitudes and for people to take stock of their lives and appreciate what life has given them.

“This is not a national song… it is a people’s song”, says ace comedian Kapil Sharma, “and all we want is to get people to smile through this toughest of times”.

Enjoy Neeti Mohan & Sukh E’s electrifying chemistry in the first episode of T-Series MTP-2

T-Series MixTape Punjabi Season 2 gets off to an energetic start with Neeti Mohan and Sukh E’s electrifying performance. Presented by Amazon Prime Music and produced by T-Series Chairman and Managing Director Bhushan Kumar, the two-month musical extravaganza will put on display 24 artists who will add a unique twist to the mix of two hugely popular Punjabi songs.

In the first episode, Neeti with her feminine grace and Sukh E with his ‘Punjab da puttar’ attitude will blow you away with their powerful, high voltage rendition of Nikle Currant and Wah Wai Wahh. The livewire performers have left no stone unturned to ensure that they do justice to the inaugural episode of  T-Series MixTape Punjabi Season 2, available first on Amazon Prime Music

The first episode serves as an embodiment of the razzmatazz that you are going to witness in the next 10 episodes. Radhika and Vinay Sapru, the series directors offer, “This episode captures what we had set out to do with T-Series MixTape Punjabi Season 2. It truly depicts the energy, the play of sound and light and the complete extravaganza with the artists. You can see the crowd enjoying the whole rendition and whatever the artists expresses. It truly comes out in the first episode.”

Says Neeti, “I have been part of MixTape for the last two seasons but that was in Hindi. This time I wanted to be an integral part of T-Series MixTape Punjabi Season 2. I am singing and performing in Punjabi for the first time for MixTape and I am so excited about it. I loved performing both the tracks and singing them with Sukh E was such a memorable experience.  I think Punjabi music is becoming my favourite genre already.”

Sukh E informs, “Nikle Currant, although sung by Jassie Gill, was a song I was associated with as a music producer. Wah Wai Wahh was a song that I had sung with Neha Kakkar a few months ago. So when I got this opportunity to be part of these two songs for T-Series MixTape Punjabi Season 2, I was determined ‘yeh to mujhe karna hi karna hai’. I was getting to show my skills as a live performer and I was very excited to be part of it.”

Laughing at the memory, Sukh E adds, “After, the first take, they found it difficult to see me jumping around and dancing so much. I was asked to go easy on the dancing bit. So, I had to control myself and I have never controlled myself while performing but, for a change, it was nice.”

Neeti and Sukh E’s high-energy, juxtaposition of the two songs will instinctively set you grooving. Adds,  Radhika and Vinay, “Each and every instrument whether it be the tumbi, guitar, dhol or the synth comes out so clear and correct in this episode that it truly is a great beginning to a great season that we are looking forward to and hoping that we hit it big at the word go.”

Jubin Nautiyal & Neeti Mohan collaborate for reprised version of Nigam’s ‘Tujhe Paane Ko’

T-Series artists Jubin Nautiyal and Neeti Mohan, who have in the past created magic with their hit duets such as ‘Bawara mann’ (Jolly LLB 2) and ‘Socha hai’ (Baadshaho) have once again come together in a jugalbandi  for a non-film single ‘Tujhe Paane Ko.’

Presented by music giant T-Series, ‘Tujhe Paane Ko’ sung by Jubin and Neeti is a recreated version of a soft, lyrical ballad from Sonu Nigam’s popular album, Jaan. Manoj Muntashir has recreated the lyrics and Abhijit Waghani has recreated the music.

Shot amidst the lush green landscape of Alibaug, the sensuous video features popular TV actor Shalin Bhanot and model and actress Priyanka Agrawal and is directed by Luv R Isrrani.

Singer Neeti Mohan, recalling her experience says, “Tujhe Paane Ko instantly took me back to an era when I used to listen to Sonu Nigamji a lot. I really enjoyed singing it because it was a modern take on the same melody. It’s a very loungy kind of track, yet very sensual and intimate kind of song. When we heard the final product we really liked it. I think people will play it in their cars, people will hear it on radio and they will have it on their phones. Whenever they would be travelling, they will be listening to this and forwarding it to their loved ones also.”

Jubin Nautiyal says, “It is a new age take to the ‘90s sound. Abhijit Vaghani is a brilliant music producer. After doing a great collaboration in the MixTape series, we are coming with something special in Tujhe Paane Ko. The cherry on the cake is my favorite female voice of present time — Neeti Mohan.”

‘Tujhko Paane Ko’ will release on October 12.

Neeti Mohan’s new single ‘Kithe Reh Gaya’ launched

It’s been a year of high profile weddings and the wedding season ain’t over yet. Coming close on the heels is singer and T-Series artist Neeti Mohan’s new single titled Kithe Reh Gaya, which released.

Though Kithe Reh Gaya is a video about an engagement ceremony, it packs in all the energy, vibe and vibrant colours of a traditional Indian wedding with extended family joining in the merry-making and the celebration. And why not?  Kithe Reh Gaya is about a ring ceremony waiting to happen in the luxurious Neemrana Hotel in Patiala. Hmm… but what is a love story without a few hiccups?

In Kithe Reh Gaya, the dashing groom accompanied by his friend is on the way to the engagement venue.  On reaching the venue, they realize that instead of reaching Neemrana Hotel in Patiala, they have reached Neemrana Hotel in Jaipur.

At the other end, the ebullient girl, played by Neeti is waiting for her to-be fiancé and is visibly  worried that it’s time to exchange rings but the man of the moment has still not arrived.  The video records the journey of the groom who surmounts various difficulties to reach his to-be bride. Some of it makes for quirky viewing.

Neeti Mohan breaks away from the tradition of a coy bride, lends a zestful quality to the vocal rendition of Kithe Reh Gaya and effuses it with an irreverent spirit, characteristic of a modern day woman.  She says, “Kithe Reh Gaya, my brand new single is full of new beginnings… it’s a song for every girl who’s in love. It’s a song of celebration with the family. I believe Kithe Reh Gaya is the song for every bride and bridesmaid. Super excited to showcase the video shot in Patiala to everyone.” Neeti shares some additional trivia. She points out, “The interesting thing is that we shot this song when it was six degrees in Patiala where I had to be in a lehenga-choli. That was coolness to the next level.”

Producer Bhushan Kumar adds, “Kithe Reh Gaya is a very refreshing dance number and will make you take a liking to it instantly. The beat is catchy and has been sung beautifully by Neeti. I am sure it will be one song that will make a mark among the non-film category.”

The music of the video is composed by Abhijit Vaghani, with lyrics by Kumaar and the video has been directed by Robby Singh.
