Mumbai, June 28 -- Veteran actor Shabana Azmi has joined the list of Bollywood actors who have turned singers for their films.
In her upcoming movie, in which she plays the role of a teacher, Shabana has sung a song on mathematical rules that can help solve equations. The movie, which is directed by Jayant Gilatar, also stars Juhi Chawla and Divya Dutta in the lead roles.
"Shabana asked Sandesh Shandilya (music composer) to share the tune and lyrics of the song with her. When she heard the tune, she found it very refreshing. She was also impressed with the lyrics of the track. Shabana memorised and recorded the song in no time," says a source.
When contacted, the music composer confirms the news, saying, "I have always been a big fan of Shabanaji's acting, and now, she lent her voice to one of my compositions. I am grateful to her."
Apparently, Shabana's experience in theatre helped her learn the song. "Since she is also a theatre artiste, Shabanaji could memorise the lyrics in a very short span," says Sandesh.
