Singer Neha Bhasin says she and her former band mates – Pratichee Mohapatra, Mahua Kamat and Anushka Manchanda might have issues from time to time, but she sees them as her sisters.
The four singers and Seema Ramchandani were chosen as winners of the show “Coke [V] Popstars ”in 2002. Following their victory, they became a part of a Viva girl group. Although Seema quickly left the band, the other four stayed together for a while and performed hits like “Hum naye geet sunaye”, “Chori chori” and “Yeh pyar nai to kya”.
During the lockdown, Neha Bhasin, Pratichee, Mahua and Anushka reunited for the 2020 version of their hit song “Jaago zara”.
“Someone did a funny rendition of ‘Jaago zara’ and then we started talking about it. Anushka suggested that “Jaago zara” was a song ahead of its time. It was written by Javed sahab (Javed Akhtar) and composed by Salim-Sulaiman. She (Anushka) was like, ‘This seems like the need of the hour. How about getting us together and doing a home version and putting it out there to put a smile on people’s faces? Although many people have tried to bring us together in the past, we have never collectively agreed, ”Neha Bhasin told IANS.
“I guess the lockdown was like a reminder of where we were as humans at that time and our love for each other will never end, we can have problems intermittently , but I think it was my sisters that I started my career with. I share the story with them, ”added Neha Bhasin of her former band members.
When asked if they would have a reunion anytime soon, the ‘Kuchh khaas’ singer replied, “Well, it took us almost 15 years to get together and 10 years to start talking again. I wonder if there will ever be a meeting. It will be good at some point to just do a song for fun for the sake of the fans of our time.
“It’s good to see an older band, we’re from 2002, that’s when we were launched, to come together. But I don’t know if it will ever be commercial. If we come together, it will be out of love and out of love for our fans, ”added Neha Bhasin, who is currently linked to the“ Indian Pro Music League ”show.
