Shashaa Tirupati, who has recorded almost 30 songs with music maestro AR Rahman, is back with ‘Vaan.’ The romantic number is composed by AR Rahman for director Mani Ratnam’s film Kaatru Veliyidai (Cheliyaa in Telugu). Though the singer had lent her voice for Deepika Padukone in Kochadaiiyaan, the 29-year-old thinks it would be awesome to sing for Alia Bhatt. “I want to sign for everyone. I want to sign for Katrina. I want to sing for Deepika again. I have sung for her but a little more to that I want to try. However, it would be awesome to sing for Alia who is also a really good singer,” she added.

While actors are trying their hand in singing, an era of singers turning into actors was observed too. On asking whether we will get a chance to see her acting on the big screen to which an honest Shashaa said, “Well, I have been given a lot of offers for acting but it is not something that I want to do. Endorsements are fine and my favourite is Starbucks so doing a Starbucks endorsement would be great and music instruments and stuffs would be really cool but acting, a definitely no! I want to concentrate on signing. I want to concentrate on my original music. I just want to shine in what I do.”

While ‘Humma Humma’ received a mixed response, Shashaa believes that it was the people who made the song work. On quizzed as to how is she handling fame post the song’s release to which an elated Shashaa said, “I am enjoying it all! Having sung ‘Humma Humma’ I enjoyed and people really liked it and that's what really is important. It is people who make a song work. I was glad that I got to sing a song and it was accepted by people.”

“Honestly speaking, I don't think people were critical of my work. In fact they were really supportive of my signing and I have been getting a lot of work after ‘Humma Humma’ but in terms of criticism, I think it is completely fine for people to be doing so. Care should be taken that the soul of the song is not taken away. It gives you a new perspective on the song which was heard back 25 years ago. I think people should be open to experimentation to music because at the end of the day it is music and anything that is musical and gives you a new outlook on a song, I think it is totally cool,” the ‘Humma Humma’ singer concluded.
