Famous for not usually her confidant voice though her intrepid opinion too, thespian Sona Mohapatra is on a new journey. The singer, who has “Ambar Sariya”, “Naina”, “Bedardi Raja” and other Bollywood marks to her credit, has started a plan called Lal Pari Mastani, that she terms as an change ego. While we consider a plan encapsulates what Sona is all about (Lal as bold, Pari as radiant and Mastani as blunt and fearless), she credits her fans for coining a tenure for her. In an disdainful review with indianexpress.com, Sona reveals how a tenure Lal Pari Mastani came into being.
“For a final 10 years, my fans who have closely followed me, know me by a moniker – Lal Pari Mastani. But where it came from is a really engaging story. we am a transport addict and it was in Delhi, we was vital in a guest house. There were these travellers from around a world. So, there was this French lady from Afghanistan who spoke about a area between Afghanistan and Pakistan border, that is a hearth of Sufiana music. However, once a Taliban had come in and they were wiping out music, creation women stay during home lonesome in burqas. Then she mentioned a lady who wore all red, was a finish insurgent and used to sing in Dargah. She did not caring about anyone. The design was imprinted in my mind that there is a sea of black and here’s a force of inlet who is station adult conflicting everything, singing, dancing and observant strain is not haraam. This part is from some 15 years ago and given then, we have been carrying a picture in my heart and mind. That is how Lal Pari Mastani happened,” suggested Sona.
Sona Mohapatra quipped that this plan is a approach for her to try conflicting facets of her possess personality. She said, “I felt this year, it was time to launch an change ego and a conflicting avatar of myself as an artist and no improved approach to name it than Lal Pari Mastani since my closest people and fans know what it stands for and my mindfulness for a colour red. we trust in a culture, a colour red has a low significance. It stands for power, womanhood, appetite and a garland of other things. And since for me it is vicious to put myself out there with this change ego is since we have always famous and people around me know me as someone who is some-more than usually a singer.”
Sona continued, “I consider a attention pigeonholes people into one sold bracket. we trust we have many facets to me over thespian and there are these interests we have in terms of music, humanities and amicable commentary. Yes, we am a thespian and that would sojourn a essence of a plan and me, though we wish to delight and try other things in a avatar of Lal Pari Mastani. So, this (project) is a tour for me.”
The “Daav Laga” thespian has finished a niche for herself in a attention with her eccentric music. Her singular voice has always finished her mount out in Bollywood. However, she chooses to sojourn detached from a film industry. When asked if she is selective about playback singing for Bollywood films, Sona smirked and said, “The attention does not have work to offer to not usually her though any womanlike singer.”
“You know something, we work harder and get many work than a people in a city right now. we am perpetually travelling with my band, always formulating new things and reinventing live strain experience. So 99% of my life is that. Now, we have stopped speculating since Bollywood is not giving me work. It is simple. we do not consider it is personal or they are conflicting me. Nowadays, a some-more we are progressing, we are regressing. We don’t have work for women,” forked out a singer.
“Out of 100 songs that we furnish as an industry, hardly 9 of them have womanlike voices and solos are neglectable. It is intolerable for a nation that was not means to put out an manuscript though Mangeshkar sisters to be celebrating testosterone. Even existence shows have a deplorable ratio. Or strain festivals, we will not find womanlike headliners in many of a cases. So, somewhere when a opportunities are so low for my gender, forget about me, we will not hear any womanlike voices. Whatever work is there, it is common by 40-50 extraordinary artists. we would not even get a chorus. So, we am finished with it.”
She believes Lal Pari Mastani would change how strain artistes are viewed in a nation and on a tellurian platform. Sona said, “I emanate my possess tour and if we get things right with Lal Pari Mastani, this will truly change how Indian artistes are viewed within a country. Even globally, Indian artistes are on one finish there are exemplary singers who applaud a niche difficulty and afterwards they consider rest is playback. It is a qualification we have distinguished though we do not have strain personalities. It is terrible and scary.”
Stating an instance from a West, a thespian settled a unhappy unfolding of musicians in India. “In a west, a Beyonce has most some-more impact than Angelina Jolie though here repeatedly, all is associated to cinema. we can't consider how a nation with millions celebrates usually one essence of art and this should be bothering a benefaction generation. It is time we watch over this fact,” quipped Sona.
But does that meant her fans would never hear her voice in films? Well, a answer is no. Sona certified that while she dislikes a operative of Bollywood industry, she would not mind collaborating with courteous people in a industry, like Aamir Khan. The thespian said, “I trust a beast of Bollywood overwhelmingly wipes out a existence of everything. we myself have no issues with it (Bollywood strain industry). we see a value of songs we have sung, we delight my connection. For example, Satyamev Jayate is another hit. Aamir Khan is one of a people who takes conflicting instruction when others follow a way. There are excellent people in a attention though overall, it is not a place we demeanour adult to.”
Under Lal Pari Mastani project, a thespian will be rising a strain and a video each month until a finish of a year. The plan will also ring detailed essays, filmmaking, strain video creation and other forms of humanities in partnership with Sona’s fans on Facebook, who is a pivotal partner in a plan along with Red FM 93.5.
