Hema Malini has turned singer with her album "Soundarya Lahari." The versatile actress and classical dancer says that she has always been comfortable with Sanskrit and the famous literary work "Soundarya Lahari."
"I made a serial called 'Nupur' in which I danced on one particular shloka of 'Soundarya Lahiri.' The show was mostly about dance. From there I started learning to chant the 'Soundarya Lahiri' and I noticed that it was coming to me very easily," the 65-year-old said here Wednesday at the launch of the album.
"I have been doing this for many years, nothing new for me. People only know me as an actor and a dancer and there is no need to tell people about it all. But recently I thought about doing this album," she added.
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has given an introduction for the album and Hema revealed that Big B promptly agreed to do it.
"We wanted someone to introduce the whole thing to the public and who better than Amit jee. When I asked him if he could do a little introduction, he promptly agreed," Hema said.
"He never said anything, he just said 'yes, of course I will do it.' I am really happy, he has beautifully given the introduction," she added.
"There are 100 shlokas and I have chanted some of them. Some others by Suresh Wadkar and Shankar Mahadevan. It is around one-and-a-half-hour. It is more for meditation and spiritual knowledge," Hema said.
