Sonali Kukreja is on cloud nine that her music video alongside Gautam Rode, Mujhse Pehle, is doing well: We all are happy that the song is being loved
Sonali Kukreja’s latest music video alongside Gautam Rode has grabbed attention. The song titled Mujhse Pehle has been sung by Saaj Bhatt. This is Sonali’s second music video. Her debut was Banna Re. The model-actor shares how much she is enjoying romancing the camera and is keen on taking up more work. She begins by talking about her background.
“I was born and raised in Delhi, in a Punjabi family. Since childhood I was always inclined towards acting and active in the drama community in school/college. While in college, I started teaching students but somewhere my passion was towards something else, which I realised later when I got my first modelling assignment in Delhi. From there I started my career as a fashion model and soon many new opportunities came my way. That’s when I shifted to Mumbai. Since then I have been a part of a lot of fashion shoots, ads and lately explored my interest in acting, which is my new love now. After taking formal workshops for it, I loved the whole process and started getting opportunities,” she says.
Banna Re, her first music video was with Mellow (singer and her co-actor in the show) and Manesha (folk singer). “This song got recognition and a lot of praise as an actor/performer. I was presented in a very glamorous avatar in it. Your first break is always important. Mujhse Pehle is with Gautam Rode that was recently released. It is completely different, high on emotions and gave me a range to perform, while Banna Re was more commercial and dance-oriented,” she adds.
About working with Gautam and response around the track, she says, “It’s always an add-on learning experience to have such an experienced co-actor on board. He was calm and patient throughout the shoot. We all are happy that the song is being loved. It is sung by Saaj Bhatt, who has done justice to the role. The music has been composed by Shamir Tandon.”
Sonali is particular about the kind of work she associates herself with. “I believe in choosing the projects where I can give my best. As today films, OTT , TV and digital, everything is there to consume. As an actor you have to choose the right roles and find your niche,” she adds.
Happy with how things are opening up for her, the model-actor only has gratitude. She is thankful for everything she could achieve so far.
“God has been really kind as at such an early stage I have been accepted in the industry. As fashion and modelling have always been my strength, I am just focusing on more acting opportunities now that are coming my way,” she ends.
