Ahead of her concert this weekend, singer Kanika Kapoor tells us that she is sticking to singles for now
If you’ve been browsing through news papers or tuning in to the radio recently, you know by now that singer Kanika Kapoor is set to perform in the city this Sunday. This happens to be the first time that the artiste, who gave us the hip shaking hit Baby doll over a year ago, is performing here, and that too for a cause. Organised by Rajasthan Youth Association Cosmo, this event is a fund raiser in aid of the organisation’s day-care centre in Otteri.
“The response in South India has been great right from my first song Jugni ji and I hope to take up projects in the South Indian music industry. I can’t give out names but I am working with someone already,” says Kapoor, who has a line-up of her hits for the audience this weekend.“I will perform songs from Jugni ji to Dilwale’s songs. I’ve prepared some great medleys for the show,” she shares, revealing that her personal favourite is Chittiyan kalaiyan that she sang for the movie Roy. Given that her new project from the South Indian music industry is all hushed up for now, we ask her if she is thinking about an album anytime soon. “I’m sticking to singles. It’s easier. I am drawing inspirations from my life, and from the kind of music I have been listening to all my life. I always like to try styles that are different from what I usually do. Like Chil gaye naina from NH10. So wait and watch,” she concludes.

I have been inspired by singers and composers from RD Burman to AR Rahman. I also love Pritam’s music
I admire Celine Dion and Mariah Carey and also enjoy listenting to Amy Winehouse. Rajasthani sufi is my favourite kind
I think stage presence is very important today. I have seen so many differences in myself since I was a classical singer for AIR many years ago
