Pune: Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit joined Punekars in their prayers to God for more rains to the water-starved city when she recited a few lines of a `rain song` from one of her earlier movies.

Madhuri recited the song `koi ladki hai, jab wo hansti hai, baarish hoti hai....Chak dhum dhum...` from the movie `Dil to pagal hai`, even as her husband Dr Sriram Nene sat in the audience listening to her.

The song, featuring Madhuri and Shahrukh Khan, was a hit when the movie was released in 1997.

Both Madhuri and her husband were attending a blood donation camp organised here yesterday to mark the birthday of Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar.

Lauding the gesture of the donors, Madhuri said, "Since I am a doctor`s wife, I fully understand the importance of blood donation."

The camp, in which about 8,000 donors participated, was organised by NCP MLA Anil Bhosale who said the blood collected would be supplied to blood banks in rural Maharashtra.
