Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor starrer ' Half Girlfriend' released its song, ' Phir Bhi Tumko Chaahungi' sung by Shraddha Kapoor which went viral for wrong reasons . Her voice sounded unreal as compared with the original version that was rendered by Arijit Singh and Shashaa Tirupati.
Shraddha Kapoor sounded like the automated voice when you dial a customer service number. The Half Girlfriend song lacks feelings and from the lyrics the song is about saying goodbye between the two , Riya Somani and Madhav Jha essayed by Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor. The separation pangs doesn't reflect in her voice. The new version sung by Shraddha is nowhere close to the original version..
Here the singing talents of actors is questioned , compared to Actor Singers like Ayushmann Khurrana or Alia Bhatt this song by Shraddha Kapoor seems to be a shoddy job.
The song should invoke sad feelings while saying goodbyes and usually transports the listener to a different world .. While Arijit's haunting number managed to do that and hit the right chord among the listeners, the song sung by Shraddha Kapoor only invited frustrations as it neither had the melody nor the lyrics in place.
The film , an adaptation of author Chetan Bhagat's book, Half Girlfriend is all set for its release on May 19th 2017.
