Punjabi Mast ~ Action Jackson


1) Congratuations Arya, on the success of Surya Asth…Punjabi Mast from Action Jackson! The song, that features your rap has become a very popular track. Please tell us how this collaboration came about.

A – Firstly a big Thanx to all the HR fans for appreciating the song, As usual Himesh ji called me for this song, with a Rap angle in mind, So myself, Himesh ji, Sameer ji & Prabhu Sir jammed together on the concept and lyrics, and what I wrote and delivered in that 1 hour Music session was liked by all of them, so I dubbed the song in another 30 minutes and my Rap section was born.

2) Please share with us your journey into Bollywood and how it all began.

A – I started composing and writing rap songs at the age of 15 during my schooling days. I would often jot down songs, which had a clear message to convey of causes, which bothered me and people around me. Soon, I made my professional debut as a composer, lyricist and rapper with the album Pump Up Yo Style with Baba Sehgal in 2001. Later, my work was appreciated in Funtoosh, Phir Hera Pheri, Namaste London, Apne, Money hai tho Honey hai, Humko Deewana Kar gaye, Fool & Final, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Bodyguard and more of such Bollywood films. Over ten years, with more than 400 Film songs, Remixes and Private music albums including the Megahit “Aap kaa Suroor” with singer-actor Himesh Reshammiya, “Ustad & the Divas” with Maestro “Ustad Sultan Khan”, and “Kajra Nite” with Vocal Genius “Sonu Nigam”.

3) You have worked on several songs with Himeshji over the years (Bodyguard, Fool & Final, Namastey London and many more) Please share with us your experience of working with Himeshji & HR Musik.

A – If I have met a Fully Committed, Musically Immersed & a no Nonsense guy in the Indian Music Industry that has to be Himesh Reshammiya. We have done more than a Dozen films together, but right from our first film Phir Hera Pheri, till date he has been the same serious & dedicated musician I had met 10 years back.

4) How does it feel to have worked with esteemed artists from Himeshji, AR Rahman through to international artist Akon?

A – In one word “Blessing”, A lot of musicians yearn to work with these musical greats, but for me being directly called by them and working one on one as a team with them has been a blessing and I thank god & my gurus for these Musically rewarding opportunities.

5) When rapping in a song please briefly share with us, the thought process that is involved.

A – Its Simple, I keep my mind totally blank before I hear the track, and once I hear it, the song itself inspires me to write the lines and the Songs Rhythm gets my Lyrical scanning and flow together, that’s it, once I have my lyrics & flow ready, it takes me maximum 30 mins to dub the rap sections.

6) Which song of Himeshji’s, has featured your most enjoyable rap?

A – There are several in fact, Singing the voice of Bodyguard was exciting, “Cheena cheena” with Sunidhi Chauhan was very interesting, then “Chhed De Pyaar Ki Baat” with HR himself from “Aap ka Surror” was super duper, “Hey Ram” with Benny Dayal & HR from “Oh my God” and many more such popular tracks. Working on HR tracks are always musically enriching.

7) Please share with us, details of your forthcoming projects.

A – Ajay Devgans, Action Jackson is out now, Abhishek Bachans “All is well” is another interesting project which in the pipeline, than I have got a brilliant track in “Hey Bro” with the Highly Talented Duo “Nitz & Sony” for National Award winner “Ganesh Acharya”, then 2 Regional Punjabi & 1 Marathi film songs releasing soon. My Solo Music album is also under Production and will be out soon early 2015.
