So really to be a part of Befikre in Bradford is like two big dreams merging. The crowd was awesome and it was an honour to welcome Yash Raj Films and the stars to my homeground and such a coveted platform like UNESCO city of Film”
Asked about her Befikre moment, pat comes the response, “Oh befikre is about being carefree, so by that count I think I had one, right on stage. I don’t know what possessed me but I sang Ude Dil Befikre and the crowd went mad with that one line and I immediately flung my jacked away in this freezing cold weather, my body was all frozen but the energy over there really pushed me to go totally Befikre”
Harshi added, “I cannot sign off without talking about Ranveer Singh. He is such a crowd magnet. He rushed into the crowd twice over and the ladies in the crowd went ballistic. I was in half a mind to go join the crowd just for the sheer energy and Ranveer’s charm. I’m floored”,
Harshi has performed in over 1500 events worldwide and also has recently struck gold in Bollywood. She has sung with Ankit Tiwari & Dwayne Bravo for the upcoming film “Tum Bin 2” directed by Anubhav Sinha. Post the Befikre gig, she will be touring UK with two more concerts.
