Laila singer Pawni Pandey takes a DIG at Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra! – Yes, she was asked about actors turning singers and her answer might not leave the two amused..
Pawni Pandey on Priyanka Chopra and Parineeti Chopra
Today, many actors are turning singers. Like Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and others, Parineeti Chopra too made her singing debut with her first song Maana Ke Hum Yaar Nahin, which is already raging charts.
While the soft, melodious number from YRF’s next Meri Pyaari Bindu has tugged at people’s heart, singer Pawni Pandey who rose to fame with her brilliant rendition of Laila Main Laila from Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees, has taken a rather surprising dig at both the Chopra sisters.
When Pinkvilla asked her about actresses turning singers and the use auto-tune in such cases, she said, “‘Jo real talent hota hai woh live performance mei samaj aata hai‘ because that is the place where your real talent is tested. There are many singers who sing brilliantly in recordings, but are really not that good in live shows. You can’t take it away from the real singer. I think it’s okay if actors want to sing, it’s purely out of their passion for music. Like Parineeti, Priyanka they sing good, although I don’t know if they can sing well during live performances but whatever I have heard I like it.”
She further added, “Having said that, koi actress kitna bhi gaale but at the end of the day she cannot replace singers like Sunidhi Chauhan or Shreya Ghosal because after a point you need real singers to sing some songs. Like a singer can act in cover shoots or music videos but they cannot act in movies. However, if the actors want to sing, I personally feel it’s okay. I don’t feel insecure.”
We are sure both the PCs won’t be too amused!
