Palak Muchhal: Didn't know Honey Singh was also part of THE XPOSE
After making her mark with EK THA TIGER song 'Laapata' and AASHQUI 2 songs 'Meri Aashiqui' & 'Chaahun Main Ya Naa', singer Palak Muchhal has now lent her voice for Himesh Reshammiya's THE XPOSE song 'Ice cream Khaungi'.
Her association with the ace singer and composer, Himesh Reshammiya dates back to DAMADAMM days. Palak has been part of Himesh's quite a few projects from POLICEGIRI to JAI HO to now being THE XPOSE.
''DAMADAMM wasn't my proper debut. It was only few lines which I had to render. My first ever song was 'Laapata' from EK THA TIGER. With Himesh ji I have done lot of songs. In POLICEGIRI, I did two songs for him, while in JAI HO I sang the 'Photocopy' number along with him. Once again in THE XPOSE I crooned along with Himesh. Having worked on so many projects together, I share a great comfort zone with him.''
Though the duo has been associated for quite some time now, when Himesh came up with 'Ice Cream' number, Palak was sort of taken aback. She expressed, ''After AASHIQUI 2, luckily I was not typecasted but I was shocked when Himeshji came to me with such a commercial & promotional track. I even asked him 'Do you really want me for it?' to which he replied, 'This song would suit your voice. Only you can do justice to it.'''
Palak further reveals about the peppy retro number. ''Since it had 60s and 70s setting much like Ashaji's (Bhosle) 'Piya Tu Ab Toh Aaja', we had to match its standard. 'Ice cream' song has the flavor of Ashaji type of numbers. It belongs to the retro zone,'' she says
Probe her how was it to render like Ashaji and she shares, ''We haven't copied her. When Himesh came to me with this song, he wanted that same type of masti with which Ashaji used to croon. He wanted have the same kind of attitude that Ashaji used to bring out in the songs.''
Besides having Himesh Reshammiya and Palak Muchhal, the song also has popular rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh, who forms icing on the cake in the 'ice cream' song. Like an enthusiastic fan Palak was delighted to know that Honey Singh is part of the song, though she didn't sing along with him.
''You won't believe right in the beginning of this year, I had wished that I win some awards and have the opportunity to work with the rapper Honey Singh. I am a big fan of his and wanted to sing a song with him. When I was recording for THE XPOSE, I always knew that Himesh is doing this film, but I wasn't aware that Honey Singh will also be a part of it. As I had sung my portion much before, some 8-9 months back, while Honey's rap portion was appended from behind. I got know to first about Honey Singh when I came across the first ad of the song that was released on social media. I was shocked to know that Honey Singh also has done his bit in the said song.''
Palak is in awe of Honey's energy and is keenly waiting to sing along with him. ''I wish I soon get an opportunity to sing with him. I don't know whether I would be able to match up his energy levels but it's my dream to croon along Honey Singh. I hope I'll do justice it,'' gushes Palak on a parting note.
