Antara Mitra, vocalist … yeah you got it right. She is the Gerua girl.
Antara who was a contestant on Indian Idol 2 has done playback earlier as well. This Kolkata lass sang the Sari ke fall sa in R…. Rajkumar, the Shahid Kapoor starrer. She considers composer Pritam to be her mentor.
It took nine long years to get Gerua. But this number in Dilwale made all sit up and take notice of her. So, as they say, she has arrived….and how !
As a Playback Singer in Films :
- R… Rajkumar (Hindi)
- Yoddha (Bengali)
- Abhishapto Nightie (Bengali)
With music by Pritam, heart felt lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya and sung in the soulful voices of Arijit Singh & Antara Mitra, don’t be surprised if you feel a love overdose after watching the first song – Gerua. Experience love in all it’s glory…
