Suraj Jagan’s vocals have opened up a new genre in Bollywood film music, which is now being called ‘Bollywood Rock’. His distinctive style will be heard on the track he recently recorded for Vishal Bharadwaj’s upcoming film Saat Khoon Maaf. It is a high energy Rock song and has been picturized on John Abraham’s character in the film.
The singer has recently been praised for his vocal abilities for the song ‘Sadka Kiya’ from the Imran Khan / Sonam Kapoor hit film I Hate Luv Storys. Though the song was not promoted as much as the other songs from the film, it is an underground hit on the social networking sites and has been praised by critics worldwide.
Suraj has also been part of the “controversial” adaptation by SEL of the Elvis Presley song ‘Jail House Rock’ for the Bollywood film We are Family. When asked about the song in a recent interview, Suraj Jagan said, “I didn’t even try to go anywhere close to Elvis! The producers were limited by the contract, so I sang it according to the brief given to me”.
Fans will also hear the Suraj on the Theme song for the much awaited reality show Khataron Ke Khiladi 3 which this season is hosted by Priyanka Chopra.
Keep your eyes and ears out for the fabulous singer’s work, we know we can’t wait to hear what he comes up with next!
