Talking about ‘TRebel’, Kiara Advani who will be making her non-film music video maiden foray with this single stated, “This collaboration resonated with my core persona. Being a rebel isn’t a look or style. It is a way of life and I have always endorsed it. For me it’s always been about living your life on your own terms, being comfortable in your own skin and not caring about what the world thinks.”
“If the society calls me a rebel for me being myself and breaking down walls and the laws written on them, then well at least I know I stand for something. I want to inspire the next generation of women to believe in themselves and let go of the inhibitions and conditioning they have been raised with, and embrace living unrestrained. It’s important to shut down the outside voice so that you could listen to your own,” added Kiara Advani.
Speaking about the track, Raja Kumari said, “When boAt approached me to write this anthem, I was so excited to collaborate with my longtime friend DJ SA on the music. I’ve always considered myself a rebel in my music choice, my career and my unapologetic nature! I loved crafting these lyrics to depict that energy and I’m so happy to be joined by so many strong women like Bani J and Kiara Advani on this campaign. I hope everyone enjoys the song as much as we did making it!”
Sharing her thoughts on bringing her fore ‘you-get-what-you-see persona’ once again for this campaign, Bani J adds, “Sharing her thoughts on bringing her fore ‘you-get-what-you-see persona’ once again for this campaign, Bani J said, “Dealing with being misjudged and misunderstood doesn’t ever get easier especially if you are a woman with a voice.”
“There are so many people close to me who really don’t understand me, and they misjudge me, which used to. People tell me to look more feminine, to behave like a woman, to stop getting tattooed and building muscle or I’ll soon be an outcast But I’m not here to cater to anyone’s definition of what I should be or be pigeonholed into particular conditioning,” added Bani.
