Composer Sachet Tandon from music composer duo Sachet-Parampara of ‘Kabir Singh’ and ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ fame, recently spoke to RJ Harshit from ‘City Ki Double Decker’ show on Radio City Mumbai about his latest song, ‘Kandhe Ka Til’.
When asked about how did he feel when live shows and worldwide gigs stood cancelled following the outbreak of the global pandemic, the young musician said, “I was very upset when our shows got cancelled due of the pandemic, because we had a lot of shows lined up till July end, August beginning. We had shows lined up across the Gulf and in Switzerland, which all got cancelled because of the nationwide lockdown that was imposed from March 24th. We were also performing across a lot of colleges in India. So, personally, it did affect me a lot.”
The singer shot to overnight fame having sung ‘Bekhayali’ for ‘Kabir Singh’, which was the biggest chartbuster of the year 2019.
When also asked about how he deals with fan attention especially from women, a smiling Sachet responded with innocence, “I don’t misunderstand fan attention. When people send messages like, ‘I love you’, etc, it’s because they relate very strongly to a song that I’ve composed or sung. I understand and respect their sentiments. I try and respond to as many fan messages as I can, because I feel that it’s my duty to engage with my audiences too on social media.
Sachet and his frequent collaborator Parampara Thakur will compose music for their next film, ‘Jersey’ starring Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur.
