Young singer Akriti Kakar is exuberant! Well, she's got a pretty good reason to be and that naturally gets her tickled pink!!! Akriti recently finished recording the revamped version of 'Meri Desh Ki Dharti' along with Daler Mehndi, for the up coming film KISAAN. The original being sung by Manoj Kumar in the film UPKAAR, was a big hit and almost became as famous as our National Anthem!
We got in touch with the talented singer, who shared, ''As a child when I was part of Kalyan ji Anand ji's 'Little Wonder' troupe, we used to sing this one song in all our trips abroad as well as India and I also remember meeting lyricist Gulshan Bawra, then. Today when I met the duo, I was so nostalgic. At the same time I feel privileged to have lent my voice to such a historic score.''
We bet that must have been one proud moment for Akriti
