Kattassery Joseph Yesudas, the Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan and seven-time National award winner, who has recorded over 50,000 songs till date, recently recorded a Hindi song after almost two decades. The renowned singer has lent his voice for Praveen Morchhale’s internationally acclaimed Barefoot to Goa and the debutant director is naturally elated having roped in the maestro for his film.
And while Yesudas is known to have recorded as many as 16 songs in a day, for the song Naina Do Nyare in this film, the singer took nearly four hours to record it, as he wanted the song to turn out perfect. And industrywallahs who’ve heard the song vouch that the lyrics of the song in his voice makes it even more beautiful and nostalgic. The film revolves around the relationship of a grandmother and her two grandchildren and the song fits in perfectly with the theme, reveals an insider.
