TOI | Apr 27, 2012.

Draped in her ever graceful kanjeevaram sari and sporting trademark bindi with Bangla alphabet 'Ka' etche on it to show support for her home city, Kolkata, Usha Uthup was in her usual element when LT congratulated her for getting Best Female Playback Singer award and this year's Filmfare's for her song 'Darling' in 'Saat Khoon Maaf', which is also incidently her first award she has got from the Hindi film industry.

"You saw it on TV. It was fabulous!" says the singer who has sung in 17 Indian languages and in some foreign ones too. The announcement came as icing on the cake for the effervesent singer, who was also awarded Padam Bhushan by government, last year.

Asked if she felt overlooked by the industry despite lending her distinct voice to many popular tracks like 'Ramba Ho', 'Hari Om Hari' in a career stretching over 42 years and she replies nonchalantly, "My priority has always being singing and being on stage, be it a studio or anywhere else. Also, You can't say anything to anybody if you are not performing yourself. I have no axe to grind with anybody anyway."
Time and again, the music directors in Bollywood have been accused of lifting music and presenting themselves as their own creation. Latest in the chain was Pritam, accused for lifting one particular song out of an Iranian band's album. Though the things got sorted out ultimately, the question still remains whether there is a lack of creativity in Bollywood. Usha differs on the topic. "I has happening for so long now. RD (Burman), Bappi Lahiri used to do to it all the time. But in those days, nobody used to notice it as there was no Internet. Communication has become so developed now that you can't really hide anything," opines the singer.

She also took the opportunity to chide the singers, those are increasingly being vocal against the onslaught of talent from across the border. "I think people should have everything on the table and then let them decide if they want to listen to it or not. They (people) are not idiots. I don't know why they (the singers) say things like that. They are only putting themselves it bad light."

With piracy being another buzzword in the industry currently, we asked her whether creativity should be free and Usha says, "Well its a nice thing na," and laughs off before adding, "On a more serious note, I think if you flood the market with a product at affordable rates, in terms of market size, there should be less cases of piracy." Asked if she everr downloaded a song off Internet, since Usha is known to be tech savvy, the singer quickly replies, "I won't do it. I'll go and buy."

Usha is generally known for her raspy voice and high pitched songs, she incidently likes to listen to soft, melodious songs in her free time. Ask who is her favourite singer from the current lot and she replies, "I love to hear KK, thought he is has been in the field for sometime now and Javed Ali. Both are very talented. I also loved "Kolaveri D". It was simply superb and very good experiment too. Thats why I say let it all come. How will you know what you want to listen to until all that is there comes (on table)."

Since IPL is on and Usha's love for cricket is well known, we couldn't resist our temptation to probe her on her fvourite IPL team. "It's team Kolkata obviously. I'm a huge fan of KKR. Recently I wore a purple sari during a match to show my support for the team. Though our team lost that match and but Shah Rukh called me later and I said no worries, we will win the next one," singer says with a grin.

The closest they ever came was i guess recording their respective versions of Banjar Raeth Hai from Kabul Express! A duet would be just awesome! Usha Uthup's voice has the power to compliment/match KK's :)

^ Precisely. Whichever gender you are, you've got to be something to step up to KK on his own ground, so to speak.
