Very few people knew Mauli two years ago, but now everyone recognizes you... How does it feel getting so much of name and fame?
It all happened very quickly. Before the show no one knew me, but after SaReGaMaPa people recognized me and started addressing me as “Indian Shakira” or the “Mayya Mayya girl”. It feels really nice that people remember me and it has been nice to get so much name and fame.
If there was one actress you would love to playback for, then who would it be and why?
My favorite actress is Kajol and I would love to do playback for her. Now I know her professionally and personally. She is a very fine actress and nice human being. I would definitely want to give my voice for her.
Who do you admire most in the music world?
It is ought to be A.R. Rahman and it will be a moment for me to cherish when I meet him.
Any plans for coming up with an album this year?
Plans are going on to release an album. My brother and friends are helping me with it. But we are yet to finalize the Music Director for certain songs. We will definitely come out with it very soon.
