Sri Lankan singer Yohani has created a storm with her hit 'Manike Mage Hithe' in the past few weeks. The 28-year-old singer's song is one of the most played songs on social media, with several singers doing a cover version in various other languages of it. After the stupendous success of the single, it was just a matter of time before Bollywood would rope the young star to do playback for Hindi films.
On Tuesday, Yohani's first cover of a Bollywood film was unveiled. The star has done a soulful rendition of the title track of the upcoming film 'Shiddat' which features Sunny Kaushal and Radhika Madan in the lead.
The official female version of the title track originally sung by Manan Bhardwaj was released today.
Shiddat ‘Journey Beyond Love’ is an Indian Hindi language romantic film Directed by Kunal Deshmukh and produced by Bhushan Kumar and Dinesh Vijan under the banners T-Series and Maddock Films.
Sung in her signature style, Yohani totally transports the listeners to a musical journey as she sings beautifully the song. Whether the song features in the film is something that we will have to wait and watch.
The film will premiere on 1 October 2021 on Disney+ Hotstar.
A major Indian talent company has already grabbed Yohani after her track “Manike Mage Hithe’ went viral in India and around the world.
