Preetika Rao and music seem to have some sort of karmic connection; no wonder she seems to do lots of music and allied stuff. After launching her own cover versions of Na Tum Humein Jane and Yaad Kiya Dil Ne, Preetika will next be seen in one more music video. Prior to this, she had graced Surili (Shaan) and Tere Vede (Manpreet Dhami).
“My first Punjabi music video, Tenu Bhul Na Pavagi, is sung by Shahid Mallya and Neelam Batra.”
“This beautiful video, directed and choreographed by Firoz A Khan, was shot in the beautiful locales of Wai and Jadhavgarh fort (Pune).”
“It is a romantic pathos song, where my on-screen character remembers the beautiful moments she had spent with her guy (newcomer, Aryan Vikal),” says Preetika, who first gained small-screen fame courtesy, Beintehaa, on Colors.
Looking ahead, Preetika is planning to release one more single, “Which might be a cover or an original composition. Several people have approached me for the same. As a necessary prerequisite, I am further brushing up my Hindustani classical music training.”
“I love music videos for they are not only short duration assignments, but even your fans want to see you in song and dance routines, which mostly never happens on telly. Interestingly, when I was in my teens, I was offered several of them, including the Rahul Vaidya debut song, but I never took it up; but now it seems life comes full circle.”
As regards acting, Preetika, who was last seen in an episode of Laal Ishq, is in talks with a big channel for an interesting fiction project, “But it is too early to give out more information, as there is a big difference between signing a project and it coming on air, having faced the same issues in the past.”
Tenu Bhul Na Pavani launches tonight.
