‘Maar Khayegaa’ singer Farhad Bhiwandiwala: People call me for badass songs and that’s my identity, I love it – Times of India

Farhad Bhiwandiwala, who has sung over 30 songs in several languages, has crooned ‘Maar Khayegaa‘ from Akshay Kumar and Kriti Sanon starrer ‘Bachchhan Paandey‘. He gives credit to his father and uncle for the exposure to different genres of music since childhood. Farhad began his career in 2005 and ever since then there’s no looking back. He is also the man behind ‘Tera Baap Aaya‘, the most loved song from ‘Commando 3‘. In an exclusive chat with ETimes, the musician spoke about his hit songs and how they are relevant among the millennials. Excerpts:

Your song ‘Maar Khayegaa’ describes the persona of Bachchhan Paandey. How does it feel to lend your voice to a song featuring superstar Akshay Kumar?

It’s trending everywhere and I would like to thank Akshay sir, Sajid sir, Farhad sir. Also, Vikram Montrose and Azeem Dayani for giving me this wonderful opportunity.

Your father and uncle had a lot of exposure to different genres of music. What made you decide to pursue a career in entertainment?

I was always inclined towards singing and when my hobby exhilarated to passion, it turned into a profession.

In terms of composition, which song of yours do you like the most and why?

I would say ‘Tera Baap Aaya’ because whatever little I am today is because of that. It helped me carve a niche for myself… people call me for badass songs and that’s my identity and I love it.

What is your creative process like?

It comes with a flow. I try and get the vibe of the script and the character; that’s very important as it gives a better perspective

Your song ‘Tera Baap Aaya’ from ‘Commando 3’ has crossed more than 130 million views. How does it feel?

I still get Instagram tags and comments for ‘Tera Baap Aaya’, it’s more like a part of me and it gives me an adrenaline rush. I will always be grateful to Vikram Montrose, Vipul sir and the entire team of ‘Commando 3’.

What musician do you admire most and why?

Music above everything, I love them all.

India lost two legendary singers in February…

Legends never die, Lata ji and Bappi da will always be with us and their legacy will keep on flourishing.

You said that you have crooned songs in various regional languages, which language was easiest and which one was toughest to adapt?

Well, I enjoy different languages and I take it as an opportunity to express myself to greater audiences.

How do you stay relevant in today’s TikTok generation?

I kind of understand what millennials like because I am exposed to different genres, it keeps me in tune with their vibe

What new music are you working on?

Some killer tracks dropping out soon. It’s a mix bag and I am sure people will enjoy it.
