Twist Kamariya – Bareilly Ki Barfi
If you want to get a party started, ‘Twist Kamariya’ is the song to go to. Hashdeep, as the lead singer, does a spectacular job at rendering its quirky lyrics, even as Yasser Desai, Tanishk and Altamash Faridi join her in the vocals department.
Ik Onkar – Rang De Basanti
Harshdeep creates a spiritual calmness with her voice in this song from Rang De Basanti. She was just 20 years old when she sang this one, and she was already singing an AR Rahman track
Katiya Karoon – Rockstar
Here’s another AR Rahman song in Harshdeep’s catalogue. From the “Ting Ling Ling Ling Ling Ling Ling” at the start to the emotional portions at the end, she beautifully manages to capture the changing moods of the track.
Chonch Ladiyan – Manmarziyaan
Every song from the Manmarziyaan soundtrack is a masterpiece from Amit Trivedi. Among them is ‘Chonch Ladiyan,’ sung by Harshdeep Kaur and Jazim Sharma. An excellent duet, it has a melodic flavour to it that makes you want to keep listening to it on a loop.
Dilbaro – Raazi
‘Dilbaro’ is an important song in the film Raazi, and Harshdeep made sure it had the impact that the makers desired from it. She has performed this Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy number to perfection.
Zaalima – Raees
This Airjit-Harshdeep duet instantly creates a romantic vibe when played. It has beautiful lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya, while its music has been composed by Pritam’s JAM8 project.
Nachde Ne Saare – Baar Baar Dekho
A staple wedding song these days, ‘Nachde Ne Saare’ has Harshdeep teaming up with Jasleen Royal and Siddharth Mahadevan in the vocals department. It instantly makes you tap your feet with its brilliance.
Kabira (Encore) – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
This Encore version of Kabira is liked more than the main version by people. No doubt Pritam’s composition is fantastic, but the voices of Harshdeep and Arijit really manage to bring the song alive.
