Multi-talented personality Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, who released her new single Sawan barse after 18 years, says though she lost her confidence in singing, her daughter and family friends encouraged her to sing all over again.

“I would say that somewhere my daughter Kaveri nudged me into music again because she is so much into music. She learns music and that is how I am always surrounded by it. Since I love music and I am a singer, though I lost confidence on active singing for some years, my daughter and all my friends, well-wishers helped me to deal with the mental block and come out of it,” actress-singer Suchitra told IANS in Mumbai recently.

Sharing the story of how she met the song’s composer Surya Vishwakarma, Suchitra said, “I was attending a screening where the filmmaker Surya Vishwakarma saw me and connected on social media, later mentioning how he is so interested to do a song with me. I found it so sweet… And since people around me were so encouraging, I told myself to keep the fear aside and pursue it.” “I played the recorded version... and my musician friends liked it and told me to make a video of it. I thought that is a cool idea,” she said.

The song is composed by Vishwakarma and video directed by Karan Butani. The concept of the video is “return to innocence” that celebrates the reclaiming of one’s essence, reclaiming the purity of childhood, reclaiming the love we owe ourselves.
