Hema Malini’s Sholay co-stars Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan likely to launch music video of her duet track
Hema Malini may be in the eye of a storm for bagging a prime land in Andheri for her dance institute at a throwaway price, but the actress-MP is currently keeping herself busy with music endeavours.
Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini and Dharmendra
If the latest buzz is to be believed, the veteran star will have Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan to release the music video of her first Hindi track later this month.
A line of the song ‘Aji suniye to zara’ says ‘Big B se leke Paaji’, so it is fitting that her 'Sholay' (1975) co-stars launch the video.
Bollywood’s Dream Girl, who describes herself as a fledgling singer, recorded the duet last year with singer-turned-politican Babul Supriyo. Shabbir Ahmed has penned the lyrics while Supriyo has rendered the music.
Not many know that during her heydays Hema recorded two Bengali songs, 'Gun Gun Gun' and 'Kande Re Mon' with Kishore Kumar as part of an album released during the festive occasion of Durga Puja. While on a political trail with Supriyo last year, she spoke about her interest in singing and having recorded a song decades ago. This made the singer coax her to record a Hindi duet, 'Aji suniye to zara', with her.
Says a source, “The song, which will be shot in Goa this week, will feature telly actors with Hemaji. The music video will be released later this month in Mumbai.”
