Amruta Fadnavis, the wife of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis, has started her career in Bollywood as a singer. She has already sung for two songs, one is from Kunal Kohli’s Phir Se, and Prakash Jha’s soon-to-release cop drama, Jai Gangaajal. On this Prakash Jha says,”I heard the song she had sung for Kunal Kohli and liked her voice. It’s lovely, silky and very deep, I felt it was just what our devotional song, “Sab dhan maati”, required so I asked my composers, Salim-Sulaiman, to try her out. They liked her too and we recorded the track last month in two sessions over a couple of hours.”
The film has 12 songs and all of them play in the background. The song crooned by Amruta is part of a sequence which features Jha himself, he informs, “I play Priyanka’s junior, Deputy Superintendent of Police, BP Singh, and the song appears at a character transformation moment.”
When further asked what was the reaction of CM, he says, “I have no idea but Amruta was a pleasure to work with. Very simple, no airs, enthusiastic. She quietly came, recorded the song and left. The music directors later wanted to re-dub certain portions and without any fuss she came back and did the needful.”
Jai Gangaajal, starring Priyanka Chopra, Prakash Jha, Manav Kaul is slated for 4th March, 2016 release.
