After enthralling audience across the globe with over 600 live shows, Veena Parasher is back with a soul touching track that narrates the love story of a transgender. This cover of the much popular number ‘Do Lafzon Ki Hai…’ will definitely leave you flabbergasted, assures the ace singer.
Besides making a song that the audience would listen on loop, Veena was in search of an engaging story for its video and hence ended up deciding to show the ground reality of a transgender’s life. “Everyday I run into eunuchs and transgenders completely capable of working but sadly forced to beg at traffic signals. Every encounter with them set me thinking as to how their life would be. Their emotions, their feelings, their love stories… everything is quite fascinating,” says Veena who came into light by winning uncountable shows on Indian Television.
“After recording the song, ‘Do lafzon ki’, me and my partner in tune, Sherrin Varghese were traveling for rehearsals, discussing and exploring ideas related to love and it’s different forms of acceptance in our society. And that’s when Sherrin came up with this beautiful idea of showing their love story in our video.”
“Sherrin is from Kerala where the LGBT community not only gets equal rights but is treated equally with respect. In fact, the state has become the first in our country to roll out a transgender policy aimed at ending the societal stigma attached to this sexual minority group. That is why he could very well connect and perceive the idea on a personal and professional level,” she added.
“Thereafter, we converted this idea into a story and figured out Ain Honey Aarohi – the best from the LGBT community in Kerala. She is a model, beauty pageant winner, a wonderful soul and a perfect fit for our video.”
The response to the teaser has been phenomenal and Veena is hoping for it to become a chartbuster.
