It was a proud moment for Indian TV when Rangrasiya, the popular daily soap on Colors, bagged an Abby Award for its title track "Inka saath hai jaise...maati sang khumaar" at the Goafest 2014. The earthy tentalising number won a bronze for the Best Original TV song and has been composed and sung by Saurabh Kalsi. The lyrics were penned by Abhishek Kumar and Shashank Kunwar.
The magical song, I'm sure, gives us all goosebumps everytime we listen to it. Being picturised on PaRud only makes it all the more enticing. The song has also been used as a background score on the show during many of the romantic scenes of leads Rudra (Ashish Sharma) and Paro (Sanaya Irani) and has lent a beautiful rustic, earthy feel to the serial, Rangrasiya- just what it needed.
There are many serials on TV shot in the backdrop of the interiors of Rajasthan like Balika Vadhu, Diya Aur Baati Hum, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, and so on, some of them even with Rajasthani title tracks. But this original number is what sets Rangrasiya apart from the rest of them.
The soulful Rajasthani track has a beautiful blend of folk and modern tunes and has won the hearts of a million fans across the globe, even before it could come close to winning the Abby. "Title song of #Rangrasiya composed & sung by me; penned by @Sheksabhi & Shashank wins a bronze at the prestigious Abby's Awards Goafest 2014," tweeted a proud Saurabh Kalsi. Saurabh has also composed the music for Star Plus' Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon 2.
The Rangrasiya team is surely riding on a high, considering the recent completion of 100 episodes, the winning of the cricket match at the celebration, the rising TRPs, and now, this win. Congratulations to the entire team, and here's wishing them more success to come!
