Mumbai, Nov 6 :  Singer Shashaa Tirupati has paid a musical tribute to the legendary composer O.P. Nayyar by working on his two famous songs "Kajra mohabbat wala" and "Ude jab jab zulfe".

"I've produced and sung the mash-up of two classics, 'Kajra mohabbat wala' and 'Ude jab jab zulfe' as a tribute to O.P. Nayyar. These are two evergreen numbers that sound current," Shashaa said in a statement.

"I feel that it's always a great composition that would give scope to other artistes for interpretation. So recently when I heard these two songs again, it suddenly occurred to me that it would be a great idea to kind of revisit both in a new way retaining the freshness and the beauty of the original composition," she added.

Shashaa doesn't consider herself to be a "seasoned producer". 

"I used to compose and produce back in the day, but not anymore. As far as O.P. Nayyar Sahab is concerned, he is a legend," she said.

She has been busy with film songs as well. She has sung "Kya kahoon janeman" for Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra-starrer "Namaste England", and "Mechanical Sundariye" from "2.0", starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar.
