"I don't want to be stereotyped, that's why I am coming out with different songs. I will always have dance songs like 'Ek Paheli Leela'. I trained in classical music for 12 years from late Pandit Ganesh Prasad Mishra of Benaras gharana. I want to balance between genres," Kanika said.
The singer's first step towards serious numbers is a dark song 'Chhil Gaye Naina' from Anushka Sharma-starrer 'NH10'."'Chhil gaye naina' is on a particular situation. It is different from anything that I have done so far. They asked me not to sing but speak. I am expressing my emotions by talking in that song. The whole point is to bring the emotion out," she said.
Kanika, who made her playback singing debut in the industry with 'Baby Doll', said she had planned to begin her Bollywood career with dance numbers as she feels it is easy to establish with such songs.
The year is looking up for her as the 'Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan' hitmaker is set to bring her own single."I am now bringing out my own single and also doing some big international collaboration. I am taking Hindi music
abroad," Kanika said.
Kanika has sung for Bollywood's leading ladies like Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anushka and Sunny Leone.
