Shibani Kashyap is as charming and flamboyant even today, as she was when her first pop album "Ho Gayi Hai Mohabbat" released in 1998. Following it up with her other hits "Sajna Aa Bhi Ja" and "Zinda Hoon Main", the versatile singer is back in action with her latest single "Wanna Be Free". The new track tackles social media addiction.
"I feel music is a powerful tool to convey a message. So one should do something more meaningful with your art," the singer-composer said in an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com.
The video of "Wanna Be Free" features Fukrey Returns actor Richa Chadha and Shibani's husband Rajiv Roda. She shares, "When I came up with this song, I thought Richa was the right face, the right actor to express the message we were trying to convey - the addiction to social media. She has done a lot of hard work. She rode the bike and had those expressions. It was because of her that people have really understood the whole song is about actually.

We had thought of doing it more of how we had become zombies in this technological world. Then Richa suggested that let's not do the zombie thing, let's do very direct thing and make it relevant. It just that all of it started falling into place."
