'Sholay' team re-unites at Hema Malini's debut album

MUMBAI: Forty years after the release of ‘Sholay’, Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra and Hema Malini, and filmmaker Ramesh Sippy shared the stage at the music release of an album by Hema Malini.

Saregama released Hema Malini's debut music album ‘Dream Girl’ in Mumbai on Monday.

"And after 40 years the team of 'Sholay' got together in one frame this evening (Monday night), a music release of an album of Hema ji," Amitabh Bachchan posted on his blog early Tuesday morning.

The song ‘Aji suniye to zaraa’ in the album has been sung by the actor-filmmaker-MP Hema Malini with singer Babul Supriyo, who is also its composer. A line of the track has the lyrics ‘Big B se leke paaji’, hinting at Amitabh and Dharmendra, who are lovingly called Big B and Dharam paaji in industry circuits.

Said Hema Malini, "Art and entertainment is what keeps me going; it is a part of me now. I had not explored my singing talent before and I am therefore very excited to showcase this side of me to the audience. Hope they continue to shower their love on me as they have done over the past years."

Hema added that it was in 1973 she was inspired by the legendary Kishore Kumar to sing. It has taken the actor-danseuse over 40 years to realise her dream.
