Nikhita Gandhi is one of the most active vocalists working today. She has often provided chart-toppers for her followers to groove to. She has, however, also been a victim of other vocalists dubbing her songs.
You did read it correctly.
Nowadays, it's become customary for music directors to audition a number of vocalists for a song before choosing one to perform the final version that will appear on the soundtrack of the film. But, until a decade ago, this wasn't a typical occurrence.
In response to the question of whether her voice has ever been dubbed, Nikhita Gandhi states, “Yeah, that has happened to me quite a few times, and at first, it used to worry me because you become emotionally connected to a song and then you feel very uncomfortable when you cannot claim it as your own.”
So what does she do to prevent herself from losing it over the fact that someone else dubbed her song? “I came to the realisation over time that if it happened to me, it also happens to other people. Thus, I am certain that I may have replaced some individuals in songs, just as they may have replaced me. As a result, it somewhat balances things out, according to Nikhita Gandhi.
It is such a lovely and upbeat perspective to have.
“I also recognised that I didn't write or create the music, so I need to know that my job is to make the song work and be the proper voice for it. Since Bollywood music is so situational, sometimes that requires trial and error, says Nikhita Gandhi.
The talented singer has had a great year. Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar, a chart-topper, and a few singles from “Shehzada” are among her best-known works. She will soon be heard in the song “Udta Parinda” from the upcoming Tiger 3 movie, which stars Emraan Hashmi, Katrina Kaif, and Salman Khan. A surprise cameo by Shah Rukh Khan's 'Pathaan' character will also be in the movie.
