Singer Sona Mohapatra has been very vocal about her views and opinions in recent times. After taking a dig on Salman Khan yesterday, she has now opened up on the new generation actors including Jacqueline Fernandez, Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar not having the conviction to lip-synch songs. Here is what she has to say about the same.
As per the recent reports, Sona Mohapatra opened up how actors in the yesteryear, used to take efforts of lip-synching. This helped the audience in feeling that the actors are singing themselves. But according to her, the actors in this generation lack the conviction to take that legacy ahead.
In an interview with Bollywood Life, when asked about the Same, Sona Mohapatra said, “Pichle Zamaane mein, actors would at least used to work on their lip-sync. When you do Saiyaan Tere Pyaar Mein Lut Gaye Hum Baazar Mein (she sings the song), when you do Saiyaan, Baazar, your mouth is supposed to open. Here, for some example, I sang some qawwali or something for Jacqueline Fernandez (pauses)… I think Jacqueline Fernandez. Woh Saiyaan bolte waqt mooh khola hi nahi usne, Saiyaan karke muh band rakha hai. I am like, lip-sync karna bhi ek art hai jo humare pichle generation mein actors used to work on. They used to make sure they know the lyrics by heart, their throat would show a certain strain when they were lip-syncing and they used to look like they were singing the song.”
Further adding one more example about the song from Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar’s Saand Ki Aankh, Sona Mohapatra said, “They are supposedly, you know, more serious actresses in it, and yet, I would like to ask Bhumi (Pednekar) and Taapsee (Pannu), did you not hear the song once before you did a lip-sync because there is no effort to even lip-sync the song in a way ki woh lage ki woh gaana bhi gaa rahe hai. Kyunki set pe aagaye or aise thoda muh hila diya aur cut away hogaye. and actually the audience get it. They are like ki lag nahi raha hai ki gaana ga rahi hai and you know people don’t know why it’s the case.”
In the chat further, Sona Mohapatra cleared that her intention is not to slam or demean anyone. She just felt it is a valid discussion and needs to be taken ahead. However, yesterday Sona had expressed how upset she was with the violence of TikTok debate and also took a dig at Salman.
