Yes, we are talking about Union Minister Kapil Sibal… but he is not exactly ‘singing’ a song, wrote lyrics for an entire album rather! The songs were put to music by none other than AR Rahman, the album is titled “Raunaq” and was released in Mumbai yesterday. the unveiling was done by bollywood muscle man Salman Khan. Jatin Pandit, Adnan Sami, Amar Singh, Jayaprada and several others attended the ceremony. Salman praised Sibal Saab’s lyrics more than Rahman’s music.
Sibal said that he finds present day film music is more noise than music. He wished for the resurgence of lyricists like Sahir Ludhiyanvi again. “I felt my lyrics had found their soul in his tunes. He is a simple man who is totally immersed in music. He is a genius. His tunes give life to my thoughts. When I penned these songs, I wanted them to be in the hands of someone who had consistency of thought and I think Rahman’s music has that,” he said.
Lata Mangeshkar, Shreya Ghosal and several other topnotch singers were part of the singers list of the album.
Will Sibal make this his future profession, as there is BJP – NaMo mantra all around?
