Harshdeep Kaur — the voice behind some of the stirring songs like Katiya Karun from Rockstar, Heer from Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Zaalima from Raees — will be in Singapore on Nov 3 as part of the MTV Unplugged musical concert.
The unique thing about this lady singer is the turban that she dons when on stage? What’s the story behind the turban?
“It’s a style statement. It started with the reality show I was doing ‘Junoon Kuchh Kar Dikhaane Ka’. So I started wearing the turban in that show and now it has become a part of my identity. Whenever I perform on stage or sing Sufi songs, I wear a turban,” she tells Connected To India in an interview in the run-up to the Singapore event.
Introduced to music at the age of five, Harshdeep has come a long way after winning the reality show ‘Junoon Kuchh Kar Dikhaane Ka’ in 2008. She has worked with some leading music directors such as AR Rahman, Pritam, Vishal-Shekhar, Shankar Ehsaan Loy and Amit Trivedi, the report said.
This is the first ever MTV Unplugged in Singapore, but Harshdeep is no stranger to the republic, having performed at Esplanade at the Jagjit Singh Tribute concert.
“We were very happy to see the response to how people look for good music and how they come and listen to soulful music,” she said.
