Around two years ago, when we interviewed the gifted singer Sunidhi Chauhan, she had remarked that she feels great to have sung for all the leading ladies in contemporary Bollywood. Be it Aishwarya Rai, Kareena Kapoor or Priyanka Chopra, she was the voice behind the actresses of today.
"But I'm so blessed that I even got to sing for Rekhaji (Kaisi Paheli from Parineeta) and Madhuri Dixit (Aaja Nachle's fabulous title song)."
Indeed, but is there anyone left?
"Well, I've heard Srideviji's planning to do a film, and I hope I get the chance to sing for her too," she said wistfully as English Vinglish, at the time, was a distant flick in the horizon. "I just love her comedy."
As the writer Paulo Coelho wrote in The Alchemist, "When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." And by some divine conspiracy indeed, Sunidhi sang for Sridevi in the melodious finale track of English Vinglish, Navrai Maajhi. And how!
Watch a brief clip of the amazing song (and lovely littl' dance) by Sridevi in English Vinglish here.
