MUMBAI: T-Series has released the maiden solo album of Gulshan Kumar’s daughter, Tulsi Kumar.
Tulsi Kumar says, "It was my father’s dream to see me singing. So somehow it was understood in my family that I would become a singer."
She has been trained in classical singing by the Suresh Wadkar Academy and with Pandit Vinod Mishra for the last four years.
The lyrics of her album are penned by Sameer and music is by Monty Sharma.
She started her playback career with Himesh Reshammiya for the film Aksar – Janaab-e-Jaaniya followed by Humko Deewana Kar Gaye, Tom Dick & Harry, Dil Diya Hai, Zindagi Rocks, Chup Chup Ke, Darling, Bhool Bhulaiyaa to name a few.
"I come from a very religious family and as a person I am religious too. So to get god’s blessings, I first started out with singing devotional songs and have lent my voice to as many as seven devotional albums. I even did a lot of remix numbers and cover versions. I wanted to explore the whole gamut of songs before getting into mainstream playback singing," says Tulsi.
