Sohie Chaudhary reprise 'Raat Akeli hai' with Raghav Sachar

Mumbai, June 19 (ANI): Actor-singer Sophie Chaudhary in collaboration with popular musician Raghav Sachar has reprised one of bollywood's most romantic numbers by Asha Bhosle 'Raat Akeli Hai'for her next performance in the seventh season of celebrity dance show 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa'. Speaking to media persons in Mumbai, Sophie said. Actually when we were thinking which song should we do, Raghav said let's do Raat Akeli Hai. So I was a little scared because I think it's a difficult song. Not only because it's Asha ji's song and I have sung her songs before and she is tough to copy and emulate and you need to sing it in your own style. But the range is from high to low. Also since I have never done such kind of song before and I want people to see that Sophie can sing in many different genres.While Raghav spoke about why did they choose this song. The duo has re-created all the sounds, including the percussion with their own voice. Sounds inspired by fashion like the heels of a stiletto and zipping up of leather boots have also been used in the track. Jun 19, 2014
