The 19-year old is multi-talented in the truest sense of the word. She has composed and sung a peppy number "Take Light", in Nishabd. A delighted Jiah exclaims, "The main idea of the song was to reinforce my character in the film, which has the attitude to 'chill' and 'take it easy'."
This is how the lyrics go...
Kya kahoon main kaisa yeh asar hain,
Yeh figure aur sexy nazar hain,
Hot hain attitude, full on jeena hain,
Haan mujhko masti bas karna hain,
Wrong hain ke right, jo bhi ho,
Just take light.
The song had been composed by her when she was only sixteen. When RGV heard the song, he liked it so much that he decided to incorporate it in the film. Says Jaih, "I composed the English version of the song, and had someone translate it into Hindi lyrics. But I made changes just to ensure that the song is louder and more exciting." Jiah changed the orchestration alongside producer Amar Mohile, and got ready to set the screen ablaze with a Shakira-inspired belly dance. Did she choreograph the dance herself? "I didn't exactly choreograph the song," she says, "Since we were running out of time, RGV asked me to do whatever I liked. So I did an impromptu dance in just one take!"
Singer, actor, dancer, writer - Jiah is already a rock star!
