Mumbai: Singer Prajakta Shukre is now Kangana Ranaut’s voice on screen. After Dankila in Manikarnika—The Queen of Jhansi, she has now sung for the actress in her upcoming film, Thalaivii.

Tere Aankhon Mein is picturised on Kangana and Arvind Swamy who play late actress-turned-Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa and her mentor MGR respectively. To recreate the golden years of South Indian cinema when the duo ruled, the makers have recreated four iconic songs from the sixties— Kannae Kaniyae and Enna Porutham from Rasiya Police 115 (1968), Ninathathai Nadathiyae from Nam Naadu (1969) and Ninathen Vanthai from Kaavalkaaran (1967).

The Prajakta-Armaan Malik duet is composed by GV Prakash Kumar and penned by Irshad Kamil.

Interestingly, Prajakta was the lead vocalist in Irshad Kamil’s Ink Band. “Irshad sir has always loved my voice and it was he who referred my name for this song for which I’m really grateful,” she shares.

The singer had no idea which film Tere Aankhon Mein had been composed for. “I was simply told that I was doing the Hindi version of a Tamil love song from an era gone by. I was excited because the lyrics were by Irshad sir and I was getting to sing his words in a film,” she reminisces.

When she later learnt that the song was for Thalaivii, she was super excited to sing for Kananga again after Manikarnika. “I have met her only once, very briefly at the music release of Manikarnika. I wouldn’t even call it a meeting because we just made eye contact on stage. I hope one day soon I get to really meet her, speak to her. Till then, I am happy singing for her. Kangana is amazing and I really admire her as an actor,” asserts Prajakta.

Directed by Vijay, Thalaivii, will be released worldwide in theatres on September 10. The film which traces Jayalalithaa’s journey from a sixteen-year-old debutante to a reigning superstar and then the much-loved politician, Amma, will hit screens in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
