Priya Saraiya is also known as Priya Panchal. Priya began singing at the age of six. She underwent her classical coaching from Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, Mumbai. The admired artist Jigar Saraiya is currently wedded to the singer. Lyricist Priya Saraiya believes this is the precise time for music. She learned her Hindustani Classical guidance from Gandharva Mahavidyalaya and from Trinity College of London, she learned Western music. Lately, the lyricist made some astounding tracks for movies like Bhoomi. Priya created the title song for Simran and tunes of Bhoomi --Trippy, Lag Ja Gale, and Kho Diya with her musician hubby Jigar. Well, this is not the only time the duo has got together collectively. They have cooperated earlier on Gulabi from the flick “Shuddh Desi Romance”. Priya wrote the lines of the track of Simran. It was her dream, and she was so convinced about Kangana’s role.
The description was so satisfactory that the entire concept came alive in front our eyes. Priya feels cheerful to be in that realm of winning awards. She said it would feel even better if she got the awards. Setup so close to that spot yet not being able to win it makes her a bit disheartened. But it keeps Priya inspired, encourages her to work hard. The lady was nominated for Apsara Awards in 2011 in Best Lyrics category and for Best Singer Category for Piya O Re Piya at GIMA Awards in 2012. She won IITA Award in 2012 for Afsar Bitiya title song in Best Lyrics category. She explained that nowadays Hindi movie songs are not made on specific ragas. We have accepted Spaghetti western music in Bollywood like rap, pop society, etc. Moreover, Priya and Jigar, are not just husband-wife but are also best friends.
When they met, the couple was more like friends. Now Jigar is much into music. He keeps inspiring Priya to keep working. The lovey-dovey couple learns from each other and even share a beneficial bond with Sachin. With changing times in the industry, the demand for versatile melodies also comes into play. The country is open to domain music these days. The taste that the audience has is also varying radically day by day because they are heeding to so many worldwide artists on Saavn, iTune, etc. The listeners are smart; they want something expressively rich and tunes of the song to be better. It’s very obvious that the spectators have advanced and with that, the people who create their music are evolving their tastes accordingly. The versatile performer is looking onward to performing with other musicians.
