Ekta Kapoor makes singing debut
By Bryan Durham - March 11, 2019
But it’s not the Ekta you’re thinking about!
The first single of the John Abraham starrer RAW: Romeo Akbar Walter, Vande Mataram is out and while Sonu Nigam’s rendition is giving us a chest-thumping feel with the song, it’s an unusual credit that has caught our interest.
The credit in question is for the female vocalist: Ekta Kapoor.
In case you were wondering, it ISN’T the TV czarina, who’s making her singing debut on this gaana Exclusive.
Her namesake is the wife of producer Ajay Kapoor, who has formerly worked with T-Series. Kapoor has since then, started his own production house, KYTA Productions. KYTA also happens to be the co-producer of RAW.
When reached for comment, Ekta said to us, “I am very honoured to sing my debut song in honour of my country and that too with the legend Sonu Nigam. There can not be a better opportunity than this. My heart is full of gratitude.”
Shabbir Ahmed, who has penned the lyrics and composed the music for Vande Mataram, apparently tried her vocals out and found her perfect for the song, sources tell us.>
