When asked about “Socho Zara,” Javed Ali shared his thoughts:
1. Can you please tell us about the song “Socho Zara” and its genre?
“Socho Zara” is a romantic song. It’s a duet that Akriti and I have sung together. It’s a great feeling, and Lalit Ji has composed it fantastically. I am really happy and looking forward to the song.
2. How did you get involved with this song, and what was your experience of singing it?
Answer – I received a call from Minara Music Production, asking me to sing this song. When they mentioned that it was composed by Lalit Ji, I was even more delighted because Lalit Ji has beautifully composed it. The track has a very romantic feel to it, which I enjoyed a lot.
3. Did you have to make any preparations for this song? If so, please tell us about it.
In terms of preparation, I received a scratch recording from Lalit sir. I didn’t dub this song in India but in New Jersey, America, as I was on tour at that time. Producer Minara Akter was also present during the dubbing session. It was a fun experience recording this song. I sang it with a lot of passion because the song demanded it. The composition and lyrics of the song speak for themselves, so there was no specific preparation required. However, I poured all my feelings and love into this song.
4. Can you share your experience of collaborating with Lalit Pandit Ji and Akriti Kakar for this song?
Lalit Ji is a legendary artist and music composer, well-known for his work as part of Jatin-Lalit. I have worked with him on some other songs in the past, and every time I get an opportunity to work with him, it’s always a fresh and new experience. This time was no different. As I mentioned, I recorded this song in the US, and Lalit Ji wasn’t present at that time, so I recorded it by myself. The best part is that he kept the song as it was without making any changes or corrections. Akriti is an incredibly talented singer, and I really appreciate her voice. I believe people will enjoy our combination in this song.
