Singer Sanah Moidutty who is known for crooning several hit tracks like 'Tu hai', 'Sindhu Maa' from Mohenjo- daro, 'Afeemi' from Meri Pyaari Bindu to name a few, recently came out with her rendition of Malaylalam classic 'Karutha Penne' and has been receiving a lot of appreciation for the same. The talented singer known for her soulful voice is seen in a new bold Avatar in this music video.
Interestingly, the song has recently crossed over 8 million views in just 4 weeks and Sanah has been getting incessant calls and messages complimenting her for the track. “Karutha Penne had always been one of Sanah favourite tracks and she had been wanting to sing it for a while now. After much thought she went for it and one can say she’s done full justice to the song. The song is also going viral on Tik Tok and is trending in the regions of Kerala and Tamil Nadu," adds a source.
Sanah has also given her own twist in this track, she has written the rap in it which is appreciated by one and all, "The rap is about racial discrimination and racial steroetyping. India is still facing this issue, most of the people think If you are fair you are beautiful and if you are dark then you are not beautiful. So this rap is about something that condemns this issue and says that dark is beautiful and she is proud of what she is and don't mess with her," says Sanah.
"I am glad that our hard work has paid off. I was planning to come out with this song since a long time and I’m really happy that people are liking it. It's always great to receive such love and appreciation from people across the globe and the kind of response ‘Karutha Penne' has received it just shows that music has no language barrier," adds Sanah.
The original song Karutha Penne features the iconic pair of Malayalam cinema - Mohanlal and Shobhana from the film Thenmavin Kombath.
