A fan of Nahid already, Sonakshi Sinha shared to say, “I had heard Nahid singing on Indian Idol and her voice is absolutely amazing. I loved watching her perform on the show and I had even once commented saying I hope you can do playback for me some day! Who knew Vishal who was a co-judge, would actually make it happen. Vishal too liked Nahid’s voice and thought it could be used for one of the Akira tracks and decided to record a song with Nahid, when I heard Nahid’s recorded track I was amazed and it was indeed amazing that I could live up to my word and actually have her sing for me in Akira! I am sure this is just the beginning and this girl will go very far in life and make us all very proud”
Another exclusively signed artist, Ananya Nanda, Winner of Indian Idol Jr. S2 has also bagged her first song in the upcoming film M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story. Music Director of the film Amaal Malik said, “I was really impressed with Ananya when I went for a special episode on Indian Idol. She is a very talented and level headed girl, listens really carefully and her expressions are bang on!
I knew I needed a voice for the elder sister, but I didn’t want her to sound too old. She understood the age I wanted the voice to sound like and she did a wonderful job. Her hold over Hindustani classical is terrific”
