Composer Bharat Goel and singer Nikhita Gandhi have released their latest song, ‘Kamli’ today. The new track relates the story of a girl who secretly admires a boy and wishes they were together.
Goel is an award-winning music producer who has been associated with films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013), Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015), Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016) and Badhaai Ho (2018).
Speaking about ‘Kamli’, the composer said, “The song has been written beautifully by Anurag-Deepak. They are very talented writers. The track was recorded during the lockdown at Nikhita's place. She is very proactive and professional, hence she managed to record ‘Kamli’ in just three days.”
Goel further shared the idea behind the new track, saying the song was the story of a secret admirer in today’s times. “I have always had a very keen interest in dance music composition and production,” he explained. “The song needed a contemporary vocal texture along with precision-based performance. Nikhita has phenomenal control over her notes as well as the apt texture to match the track.”
Gandhi enjoyed working on the track immensely. “When Bharat approached me with this song, I was immediately intrigued,” she stated. “I was excited about being part of such a commercially viable song through an indie release. I even told Bharat jokingly that, ‘Bro, pitch this to a film, they will love to feature this.’”
The singer added, "But his bold and awesome attitude to release this as a single, and own this genre was what made it really exciting to come on board. We need more artistes like Bharat who proudly release such awesome work! Looking forward to all of you hearing this track.”
Goel also described what made ‘Kamli’ special. “While it sounds phenomenal as a dance record with cutting-edge dance music production, it sounds equally pleasing if one was to just hum it with a simple guitar, which is why I believe it will appeal to a wide audience across all age groups and demographics,” he said.
