New Delhi: Following the footsteps of her sister Priyanka Chopra Jonas, actor Parineeti Chopra has proved her mettle in singing, her latest bout being ‘Teri Mitti’ from ‘Kesari’.
In a heartfelt post on Instagram, Parineeti revealed that singing is her ‘first love’ and also spoke about how nothing in the world makes her happier than singing out loud or even humming in her head.
“I think the crux of who I am is my love for singing. NOTHING in the world centres me more, focuses me and makes me happy than just plain singing. I sing all day. And when I am not singing out loud, I am humming in my head. It is my first love. My mom tells me I used to sing the ABC song when I was a year old!” Parineeti wrote alongside a video of her latest song.
“Anyway, you get it. Anyone who has heard me sing, has a piece of my soul, my version of ‘Teri Mitti’. Thank you, Karan, Akshay sir, Anurag sir, Azeem, Arko, Aditya, Manoj and Arko for letting me do this” she added.
The melodious voice of Parineeti in the song will take you back into the era of the catastrophe and will definitely give you goosebumps. The sombre ambiance and the heart touching visuals of the battle of Saragarhi during the song will coax you to think about it again and again.
To celebrate the success of ‘Kesari’, which recently crossed Rs 150 crore in its fourth week, Parineeti recorded the track which was originally sung by B Praak and penned by Manoj Muntashir.
‘Kesari’ is based on the 1897 Battle of Saragarhi, where an army of 21 Sikhs fought against 10,000 Afghans.
The ‘Namaste England’ actor had last lent her voice for ‘Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahin’ from ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’.
On the work front, Parineeti will be seen in ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’ opposite Arjun Kapoor and ‘Jabariya Jodi’ alongside Sidharth Malhotra.
