My voice suits Madhuri Dixit: Rekha Baradwaj
Mumbai: Playback singer Rekha Bhardwaj, who went behind the mike for Madhuri Dixit`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 told IANS.
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: "Singers 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.
