Melodious race

SUCHITRA BEHAL


Suddenly all stars worth their salt in Bollywood seem to be singing for their supper. First it was Asha Bhosale and Urmila Matondkar in a duet. The Big B, of course, has already lent his baritone to many numbers. But now it seems that actor ANUPAM KHER, anxious not to be left behind in this melodious race , is to sing for the film “Dhoom Dhadaka”. Said Kher when asked, “The producer-director asked me to sing a number for the film. I love singing so I said ‘why not’ and that’s how it fell in place.” Kher, of course, insists that his singing quality is between that of a great “bathroom singer and a professional one”. He added that he grew up listening to Hindi film songs and that was his real introduction to films. “I think I sang my best when I was courting my wife. My voice was divine,” said Kher, true to type. Of course he’s willing to bet that his number may just be the hit for the film.
