Mumbai, May 10, 2017: This is one die-hard fan even popstar Justin Bieber would be proud of.

A 12-year old New Delhi schoolgirl Akshita Rajpal, who’s an obsessive fan of the singing legend, flew down here on Tuesday alone to mark her presence at her idol’s maiden live concert in India – at Navi Mumbai on Wednesday.

Akshita is a Class 8 student of Amity International School in the national capital and has virtually spent sleepless nights ever since the Bieber concert was finalized last month, revealed a family member.

Her parents had bought three Platinum tickets for entry to the D. Y. Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai, but had to cancel their travel plans at the last minute on Tuesday.

Not disheartened, Akshita flew down alone and handed over the two extra tickets to a couple of family friends to attend the biggest musical event of 2017 in the city.

A child model, she has created a booklet on the life, lyrics and everything she loves about the 23-year old Bieber, her uncle Sumit Kaushik said.

Having played a small role in the recent romantic ghost comedy, “Phillauri” starring Anoushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh, Akshita has also modelled for brands like SBI General Insurance, Kodak, Birla SunLife, Fortis, etc, said Kaushik.

Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who has featured in the video of the recreated version of “Mungda” song, says that makers repackage iconic songs for the current generation.

Her latest dance number “Mungda” for the film “Total Dhamaal” has earned the wrath of the fans of the original number featuring Helen.

“Mungda” was originally sung by Usha Mangeshkar with music by Rajesh Roshan and lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

The song has been recreated by singers Jyotica Tangri, Shaan and Subhro Ganguly and music director duo Gourov-Roshin.

Reacting to the criticism, Sonakshi said: “Even I like the original better and there is no comparison with that. When we recreate a song, that time we don’t think that we will make a particular song better than the original one because when you are recreating an iconic song then there is no point making comparison with the recreated song.”

“We are only trying to repackage that and give it to the today’s generation who might not listen to old songs. For me as an artiste, I have been told by makers of the film that they wanted me to be a part of the song as they don’t see anybody performing it so, that was a big deal for me that makers felt that I would do justice to the song and I am very happy.”

Sonakshi was interacting with the media at the fourth edition of Next Brand Vision Awards 2019 here on Tuesday.

Talking about her upcoming releases, she said: “I am looking forward to every film of mine which is coming out this year. ‘Kalank’ is my next release. It is releasing in April.

Asked about the amount of fun audiences should expect from “Dabangg 3”, Sonakshi said: “Double and triple of what you saw in first two parts.” (IANS)
