Actor Kirti Kulhari who played the role of Sasha, an unapologetic, independent lead vocalist of a band in her most recent movie “Shaadisthan”, opens up about her experience of portraying a musician.
Actor Kirti Kulhari said, “I am a musician at heart and also very fascinated by the world of music. So I was more than thrilled when I got the opportunity to portray Sasha, the lead vocalist of a rock band. I admire a lot of qualities about her, but essaying this role allowed me to bring everything I know about music to the table. Also, Sasha and I both have strong classical roots.”
She further added, “I started learning Indian classical vocals during my childhood and still take singing lessons whenever I get a chance. Stepping into the shoes of a musician was an extremely enjoyable experience for me, and I also got to act with three real musicians which was very exciting. Once the shooting started, I got to spend time with Shenpenn, Apurv and Ajay as well as the movie’s music composers Sahil Bhatia and Nakul Sharma – an electronic-music duo. They all taught me a lot about various songs, genres, and bands, and we would often have jam sessions between scenes which were a lot of fun. Not only will this movie always hold a special place in my heart, but Shaadisthan has also motivated me to learn more about music!”
