Madhuri Dixit turns singer

 Give Madhuri Dixit Nene a dance floor, and we all know what she is capable of. An entire generation of filmgoers grew up seeing Madhuri dance in movies like Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Devdas (2002) and Aaja Nach Le (2007). But now, the versatile actor is all set to do something new — Season Five of the celebrity dance show Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa (to air on Colors from next week) will see her sing for the first time, reports Hindustan Times.
The actor recently recorded a new version of Kabhi Kabhi, the title track from the 1975 Amitabh Bachchan movie. The 47-year-old recorded the song early on Wednesday.
And she wasn’t alone. Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is a judge along with Madhuri on the show, has also recorded a shayari in AB Sr’s style, which will be part of the song.
Ever the perfectionist, Madhuri put in 10 straight hours for the song that is expected to be used as part of the opening episode of the show. The idea behind getting Madhuri and Karan to record a song was to highlight the show’s underlying theme: stepping out of one’s comfort zone.
The lyrics, aside from the first line, are believed to be completely new, although the tune has been maintained from the original track picturised on Rakhi and Amitabh.
The new lyrics have been written to let Madhuri express her gratitude towards her audience for bringing her back to Mumbai and to showbiz.
An evidently excited Madhuri tells us, ‘I felt the show’s opening episode is the perfect platform for me to step out of my comfort zone and thank my fans for their immense support. Singing is something that has always intrigued me. I’ve had a lot of fun working on the song.’ She adds, ‘It’s a great thrill and one of the biggest moments for me right now.’
Karan, who turned 40 last month amid much fanfare, has only words for praise for his co-judge: ‘Madhuri is the queen of dancing in Bollywood, and a fantastic actor. In the recording studio, behind the mic, I discovered that there is another side to her. She’s an incredible singer. I think the song has turned out really well. I can’t wait to know what the audience has to say.’
