As well as being a brilliant filmmaker, many don’t know that Vishal Bhardwaj also has a talent for singing. News has it that director Amol Gupta has roped Bhardwaj in to sing one of the songs from his forthcoming film ‘Sniff’.
According to Deccan Chronicle, the song titled ‘Aur Kitni Dur’ is inspired by the music direction in Mujtaba Aziz. Talking to the media, Gupte was reported explaining, “Vishal is my dearest friend with whom I did Kaminey as an actor. He has been an inspirational person in my life. I got a kick off from ‘Maachis’ (1996), which he had composed. The whole album was a revelation. He went on to become one of the cutting-edge filmmakers. He has a lovely voice which is under-utilised. ”
He went on to add, “I just feel that the wisdom of a music director percolates into his voice — sometimes singers are self-obsessed about having a correct voice, the correct thing and it gets a little over-processed. When I heard Vishal sing, I was just floored and the best way to pay a tribute to a great voice like his is to use it in your film. It makes me believe that the song ‘Aur Kitni Dur’ is in the range of ‘Tare Zameen Par’s (2007) Maa sung by Shankar Mahadevan.”
Set to release on 25th August, ‘Sniff’ tells the story of a young boy who becomes a spy after discovering his advance sense of smell.
