Singer Anusha Mani has made her mark in the music industry with songs like ‘Tera Rasta Chhodo Na’, ‘Zara Dil Ko Thaam Lo’ and ‘Gulaabo’. She has now given vocals to ‘Boo-Boo The Great’ , an upbeat Hinglish song from the quirky documentary The Tails of Boo-Boo & Cuddly Poo produced by Vandana Sethhi, Founder of Earth Films.
"Salil Jason Fernandez, who is the creator and the director of this documentary, and Vandana came together to highlight the plight of stray animals in our country and they made a beautiful documentary with me giving voice to one of the tracks,” she told Opoyi.
“The film focuses and highlights the plight of stray animals and Boo Boo song represents any stray cats. With the song, we are trying to say that while you think the cats are very cute, and quirky and have the mind of their own, they still need love, care, shelter, and food. It's the need of the hour to bring awareness about stray animals and adoption,” she added.
Since the song is in Hinglish so is that the trend of the season for her? To this, she replied, “I don’t believe in trends as I feel that any song and any piece of art has to have a message and has to be conveyed properly,” she said.
Anusha has given some of the hit tracks that even got her award nominations so does she have her favorites?
“I don’t have a single favorite song but maybe I will sing a song that I sang in ‘Chennai Express’ which a cat would tell any human walking on the road and it goes like that ‘Tera Rasta Main Chhodu Na,” she added.
Talking about competitions, Anusha says that “ the way we subject people to it is very unhealthy.”
“I don't believe in competition and I don't believe that we are all here living under this one beautiful planet to compete with each other at all times. I truly believe that we are out here following our own path doing the best that we can. I am a true believer of karma and I feel that what’s meant for you will come to you,” she said.
Talking about one song that makes her emotional and she said, “Kuch Toh Log Kahenge, Logon ka Kaam Hai Kehna holds true to so many situations which we face in day to day lives.”
