Simmba Actor And Sitar Player Neha Mahajan’s Collaboration With Ricky Martin Got A Grammy Nomination!

By  | 

Today has been quite the day of surprises. I woke up to find that Courteney Cox aka Monica Geller recreated her iconic turkey dance in honour of Thanksgiving. And then, through endless browsing of my Instagram feed, I discovered that actor Neha Mahajan is also a really talented sitar player who collaborated with none other than Ricky Martin on his album Pausa. And guess what, it has been nominated for a Grammy award!

The 2020 Grammy Nominations were announced earlier in the week. The ‘La Vida Loca’ singer bagged a nomination in the Best Latin Pop or Urban Album category for his album Pausa. Turns out, Neha had collaborated with the singer on a song from the album, called ‘Mi Sangre’!

Ricky Martin shared the exciting news on his social media, and Neha joined in doing the same!

Neha went on to express her excitement and thank the people who helped make the collaboration possible in another Instagram post.

Pausa was released in May 2020, and has since then gone on to win an award at the Latin Grammys this year too.

Check out the song here:

TBH, I genuinely didn’t know that Neha Mahajan played the sitar. I recognise her from Simmba, where she played one of the girls in Goa who are crucial to Simmba’s transformation from bad cop to good cop. You’ll also remember her from Extraction on Netflix, in which she played the wife of Randeep Hooda’s character.

The The 63rd GRAMMY Awards will be held on January 31, 2021. There are 83 categories in total for which the golden gramophone will be awarded. Comedian and The Daily Show host Trevor Noah will be hosting music’s biggest night this year. Currently, there are no confirmed plans as to how the Grammys are going to get conducted. According to the Recording Academy Interim President Harvey Mason Jr., they’re working on three formats—one, the usual with the full crowd present; two, with a limited crowd present; and three, with no crowd, like the other shows. However, what the Academy is firm on is that the show will happen, come rain or shine, on the very date and it will happen live. There will not be any pre-recorded segments.

Here’s wishing all the best to all the nominees, and a special shoutout for Neha Mahajan and Ricky Martin for Mi Sangre!
