Former Australia fast bowler Brett Lee is known for his breathtaking pace and sharp yorkers, but yesterday the speedster revealed he has a soft, musical side too — and that too for Hindi music.

Nakuul Mehta, the actor of the daily soap 'Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara', was so thrilled to see his cricketing hero at yesterday’s promotional event at a city hotel that he requested the bowler to sing along a few lines of a popular song from the 1981 Bolywood flick Dard.
Lee immediately hopped on to the stage and in his Australian accent sang, “Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara:, much to the joy of the happiness of the 100-odd gathered for the promotional event at a city hotel yesterday.
“I’ve been following Lee’s career ever since he made his his Test debut in 1999. I know he’s a good singer but it was nice to see him sing a hindi song,” Mehta told mid-day.
It may be recalled that the pacer has previously sung for a Hindi album with singer Asha Bhosle, Haan Main Tumhara Hoon during the 2006 ICC Champions Trophy.
