Tara Sutaria recalls how it was 'quite tough to navigate' her first Hindi song 'Shaamat'

Mumbai, June 23 (IANS) Actress Tara Sutaria on Sunday reminisced about her first Hindi song, 'Shaamat', which she recorded for the 2022 action thriller film 'Ek Villain Returns' and said as a trained western classical and pop singer for the last 20 years, she found it challenging to navigate her technique and sound to suit her character.

Taking to Instagram, Tara shared a series of behind-the-scenes pictures from the shoot of the song.

Along with the snaps, she wrote: "A little over two years ago, I recorded my first Hindi song #SHAAMAT which is at 93 MILLION views today.. This was for our film #EkVillainReturns where I play a singer. It felt serendipitous as one seldom gets to sing for oneself in film.. As a trained western classical and pop singer for the last 20 years it was quite tough to navigate my technique and sound to fit and suit my character's.."

"English and Hindi music are both close to my heart but entirely different when it comes to training, sound and technique! In retrospect, SO glad to have taken a leap and grateful to experience so much love toward the song. Such sweet memories with everyone too!@mohitsuri@arjunkapoor @ankittiwari@badboyshah You made it special," added Tara in her post.
