The ace playback singer’s grandniece makes her singing debut in Mai, her aunt’s film
Asha Bhosle’s acting debut in the film Mai has been made more memorable for the singer. Her 10-year-old grandniece Zanai Bhosle is all set to make her fabulous 79-year-old aunt dance to her tune!
Just today, the veteran singer tweeted a picture of her grandniece hugging her sister Lata Mangeshkar and announced that Zanai would be singing in the film. Salaami ho jaaye is the song in which Asha will sing along with Zanai. Singers like Shankar Mahadevan, Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan have also contributed to the music. It’s a peppy number set like a gem in the emotional roller coaster that the film is and Asha dances in the rain with great elan. This one and was launched recently at the iconic Lalbaugcha Raja shrine, just before the start of the Ganesh festival.
The film Mai, which is an emotional heart-tugger, has Asha playing a mother who is abandoned by her son as he leaves for the US. She then seeks comfort in her daughter and son in-law’s home – played by Padmini Kolhapure and Ram Kapoor. Well, It’s a double debut for both Asha and Zanai. Seems like music truly runs in the family!
