Rekha Bhardwaj: My voice suits Madhuri Dixit-Nene

She is singing two songs for Mads in Dedh Ishqiya

Playback singer Rekha Bhardwaj, who went behind the mike for Madhuri Dixit Nene‘s special song Ghaghra in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, has sung two others for her in Dedh Ishqiya as her voice is apt for the Ek do teen star. “People like our combination. I think my voice suits her. My voice goes well with her dance and expression,” Rekha said. The two songs by Rekha – Hamari atariya pe, penned by Gulzar, and Jagave are picturized on Madhuri and many feel that the former number recreates the diva’s 1990s magic. Many feel Rekha is choosy with her songs, but she says decision depends on music directors.

She said, “Singer doesn’t choose the songs it all depends on the music directors. It is the music director who chooses their singers.” Director Abhishek Chaubey presents Madhuri as a very strong woman in Dedh Ishqiya and she even has some intimate scenes with co-star Naseeruddin Shah, who had also featured in the original that saw Vidya Balan playing a very strong character in an unconventional yet entertaining story.

The sequel too offers a lot of interesting twists and turns with Arshad Warsi and Huma Qureshi in the cast.
