Singer-politician-minister Baabul Supriyo has never beemhappier. His new IndiePop Song *#SHAYERA* presented by #9XMedia & #SpotlampE, has turned into a goldmine, and rightly so. It’s a song about love with lyrics which, for a change, make sense. The tune has an undulating amiable hook that sinks deep into the listeners’ heart transporting them to a time when love ballads were a rule, not an exception and to lulling listeners to be transported into happier times when love and togetherness were not suppressed by a fear of the current contagion.
Baabul has sung memorable love song in the past , the most cherished being Saanson ko saanson mein dhalnedo zara from the film Hum Tum.
“I’ve always enjoyed singing songs about love . I am not surprised by the success of my new song Shayera. Given the traumatic times that we are going through everyone needs a healing touch . I think Shayera provides that,” confesses Baabul.
He would love to sing more , if only he had the time. “Being a cabinet minister I hardly get time with my parents, wife and daughter. Singing is my first love. But family comes first.Whatever time I get to spare from my political work I spend with the family. Gaana toh merijaan.Aur main kahin bhi rahun kuch bhi karun zindagimein gaate rahunga,” says Baabul emotionally.
Baabul’s singing career has the Prime Minster NarendraMaodiji’s blessings.
“Our Prime Minister is a connoisseur of the arts. He encourages me to sing .I am hugely encouraged by the success of Shayera. I never expected my listeners to respond with such enthusiasm to my new song. Of course it came straight from the heart. Good intentions can never go to waste,” says Baabul confidently.
