Khushboo Grewal began her career as an actor, VJ, and finally a playback singer. She got fame from her first song ‘Pink Lips’ with Meet Bros from Hate Story 2. She loves making people tap their toes while on stage with her electrifying dance numbers. In a heartfelt interview with Harsha Prerna, she shared her musical journey and opinion on a lot of things. Let’s know more about this tech savvy singer who loves her SmartHome, gadgets and gizmos.
Exhibit: What is your style of Music?
My style of music is honestly that makes me dance instantly. I am somebody who’s very energetic; I am a Punjabi by nature completely. So, any kind of peppy music that makes me just tap my toes and start grooving is the kind of music I love. I also think music is for all kinds of mood. But, there are times when you are driving and want to listen to some soulful songs.
Exhibit: Describe your relationship with technology?
Oh I am a very tech savvy person. My life revolves around technology and I enjoy my gadgets completely. Right from my cooking to my workout, everything is related to technology. In fact our house also has a lot of gizmoz which helps in making our life a lot easier. In our unwinding time, my husband and I like watching Netflix, we really enjoy our sound system and home theatre.
Exhibit: Who is your inspiration in the Music field?
Well, I am not somebody who’s been following music since I was little. I did not grow up in a musical background. It’s only during the teens, that I started enjoying my own kind of music. And, I think the two people I really idolize and feel they are talent galore are Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan. Not only they are fabulous singers, but can also put the stage on fire. To be like that kind of an icon, is next level.
Exhibit: One thing you’d like to change in the current music scene?
I would like to reduce the use of technology to create fake voices. That’s something which really pierces me, and I am sure it pierces those people who have given their blood and sweat to the music industry. I feel the whole use of technology and auto tuners are making us forget what real music sounds like.
Exhibit: Enlighten us on your upcoming movies and what can we expect next on the cards?
There are couple of songs that are coming up! There’s a single that’s coming with Meet Brothers. There are two more songs in the pipeline and unfortunately I can’t talk about it. One is a dance number and another one is a slow romantic song which I have sung with a very renowned singer and it was a dream to work with him. So, the single with Meet Brothers is going to come on Meet Bros Music Channel, we have already shot the video for it. You will also find me doing a little Cameo in the video.
Exhibit: What would be the future of technology? Would you invest in any startup idea?
Of course I will! I would love to invest in a great startup idea. In fact, I always feel that there is an entrepreneur in me which is waiting to be unleashed. And, I think in another 5 or 10 years I will be leaving the industry and start a business or something and obviously technology is the way to go.
