‘Sridevi-jee was a divine angel who ‘sang’ with me’: Jolly Mukherjee

“Undoubtedly, her untimely exit is a shattering shock for everyone, including me, but legendary Sridevi will always ‘live’ in the hearts of all her loyal fans with her memorable movies and the fabulous dance-songs picturised on her. Especially this, playback title ‘duet’ chartbuster song ‘O Meri Chandni’ from the Yash Chopra-directed movie ‘Chandni’ (1989) which she ‘sang’  with me,“ says noted senior playback singer and live concerts singer, Jolly Mukherjee.

How did Jolly-Da find awesome actress-dancer Sridevi as a ‘co- singer’?  

“Although she was the reigning superstar heroine, she seemed very unassuming. Being an excellent actress, her vocal artistry, her voice modulations and exuberant expressions throughout the ‘Chandni, O Meri Chandni’ song were so natural and endearing. One can listen to our duet song repeatedly, it grows on you. Observe how perfectly she has even performed on-screen with Rishi Kapoor to her own playback voice. Even after nearly three decades, there is always an audience farmaaish, to sing that evergreen ‘Chandni’ title-track in live concerts.''

“Recently, on the sets of a reality singing TV show, when I complimented Sridevi for her ‘playback’ talent and asked her when she would sing again with me, she smiled and politely responded by saying,  ‘But actually I am not a singer’.  Today all I can say is that, for me, Sridevi will always be the divine ‘angel’, who gave me my biggest chartbuster. For which, I will eternally remain grateful to her,” signs off Jolly-Da.
