Amercian music guru David Kushner of the rock 'supergroup' Velvet Revolver is all praise for Mallika Sherawat's upcoming snake goddess thriller HISSS directed by Jennifer Lynch and his musical collaboration with Shruti Haasan for the film's soundtrack.
On the even of the release of his song BEYOND THE SNAKE which features Miss Haasan singing vocals (and for the first time in history with an Indian writing English lyrics for an American rock legend), Mr. Kushner released a statement about the project:
'When I first heard about this project, I was immediately interested, as I've always been a fan of the Lynch family as a whole. But then I saw the previews, I got REALLY excited! Jennifer and her dad have always pushed the limits in many different art forms and I'm honored that they chose the song I submitted. I really tried to capture the vibe of the scenes I saw in the song and I think I did, but when Shruti threw down her vocal, it just took it to another level.
"I'm also honored and humbled to see all the buzz the collaboration has caused. Whenever I've had a chance to work with someone from another country, I jump at the chance, because whether they realize it or not, they always bring a nation's musical history and influence to the table, and to me, that's such a heavy concept that I can't say no! I love what Shruti did and I'm proud to have my name on it and to be a part of HISSS.'
