Known popularly as the Dreamgirl, Bollywood actress Hema Malini was in the city of Kolkata for the recording of three Bengali songs under the banner of Saregama. The actress cum parliamentarian will be aided in this job by Babul Supriyo, singer and also Hon’ble Minister of State for Urban Development, Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation.
Speaking at the occasion Sanjiv Goenka said “It was way back in the year 1973 when actress Hema Malini was inspired by the singing capabilities of legendary singer Kishore Kumar. It is due to this inspiration that she recorded two Bengali songs written by Mukul Dutta, the music of which was composed by Kishore Kumar. These songs formed a part of the puja album in 1973 which was released by Gramophone Co (earlier name of Saregama). After a gap of nearly four decades, Babul Supriyo has taken up the initiative to bring back these two songs for the audience accompanied with modern music arrangement. The third song will be a duet composed by Indraadip Dasgupta and sung by Babul Supriyo and Hema Malini. The lyrics will be penned down by Srijato”
The new album consisting of these three songs will be released on the eve of the upcoming Valentine’s Day (14th of February).
This coming together of Hema Malini and Babul Supriyo will help in reliving the memories of the master musician Kishore Kumar who had contributed so much to the Indian music industry.
