ENTERTAINMENT NEWS: Madhuri Dixit recently made her singing debut with the single ‘Candle’ and has been receiving praise from the entire entertainment fraternity. The actor-producer said the song is about hope and positivity.
“There are so many people who cannot afford to sit at home and are facing so many problems. When I look at them I feel my problems are nothing compared to what they are facing. I feel sad. I try to help as much as I can.”
“As an entertainer, this is a way to help people. I do what I can in my universe. I can try to help them elevate (through the song). If as an artiste, I can make them feel better about life in general, I would love to do that,” Madhuri told PTI in an interview.
She took to Instagram to share some ‘cherished moments’ from the recording process in a Los Angeles studio and gave a shoutout to her team for making it possible.
“Some cherished moments from the studio in LA where we recorded #Candle. It has been a wonderful journey and I made a lot of good friends along the way. Big shoutout to my amazing team who helped me bring my passion for music to life. #DreamTeam #CandleOfHope,” wrote Madhuri.
The pictures show Madhuri, her husband Sriram Nene, Jules and American singer-songwriter Raja Kumari. A photograph shows Madhuri recording the song, while another shows her and Raja Kumari in a conversation.
The ‘song of hope’ received praise from Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan, Alia Bhatt and many more celebrities.
Shah Rukh tweeted, “All my career my friend colleague and absolutely madly talented @MadhuriDixit is the one person who I have always looked upto and have learnt my craft from. What a lovely voice & how beautiful is she!!! Awesome.”
Karan praise Madhuri on Twitter and wrote, “Is there anything my supremely talented friend @MadhuriDixit cannot do ??? Please give this beautifully rendered song a soulful listen! The world of music welcomes you Madhuri!”
On the acting front, Madhuri is set to make her digital debut with drama-thriller series set at Netflix.
The show, backed by Karan Johar’s Dharmatic Entertainment, had to recently stop shooting after the lockdown was announced.
“A lot of shoots have got affected. But we will start shooting once everything settles down and we formulate a system where we can shoot safely. I don’t know what the sets are going to look like. It is all up in the air till we can figure out a system where we can work without creating trouble,” the actor said.
The actor was last seen in Johar’s 2019 production “Kalank”.
