Shivi Kashyap, a music composer and singer, made her debut in Bollywood with Ketan Mehta’s TERE MERE PHERE and recently sung & composed a promotional track for Vir Das starrer AMIT SAHNI KI LIST. Now, Shivi is gearing up for yet another project DILPHIRE, directed by debutant Puneet Prakash.
Interestingly, she has composed three tracks - a sufi number, a love duet and a tapori song for DILPHIRE. While she got Rajasthani folk singers for sufi song, the tapori number is sung by Mika Singh and the love duet is with singer Arijit Singh (‘Tum Hi Ho’ fame)
Ask Shivi about DILPHIRE compositions and she shares, "Director Puneet Prakash is a good friend of mine. When we first met he heard my compositions and within 20-25 seconds he said I want it for my film DILPHIRE. The first one which he finalized was a sufi number. Then he asked for a love song, which happens to be the title track of the film. Then, one fine day he came to me saying that Shivi 'I would like to push you for a tapori song now. Why don’t you do that?’ With the kind of conviction he said that to me, I was completely charged and I thought lets try something different. I started working on it. I started to hang around with office boys and watchman and would talk about their lives. In that way it would help me to understand their lingo, their lifestyle. And I used the same while composing the song."

Further revealing about the tapori song, Shivi said, "The song is about a boy wooing and trying to impress the girl. And Mika was apt for it! He is great as he comes with the experience of singing similar type of such numbers. When you hear him there’s certain naughtiness to him. So I wanted the same in my song too. When I made him heard he instantly fell in love with the track."
About singing the title track ‘Dilphire’ along with Arijit, Shivi said, "The song that I have sung along with Arijit is a duet. It’s a romantic, a very spaced out and beautiful track. It’s one of my favourite tracks in the film and I really can’t wait for it. It’s way different from ‘Tum Hi Ho’ of AASHIQUI 2. Arijit is a great singer."
