taking a cue from Kollywood where actresses like
Andrea Jeremiah and Mamta Mohandas have jumped into
the singing bandwagon, Bollywood actress Tannishtha
Chatterjee has not only sung in Dev Benegal's
forthcoming film 'Road, Movie' but also composed a
song inspired by Rajasthani construction workers.
"I have sung in my films before, but this was some
kind of special thing. It wasn't meant to be...it
wasn't there in the script as I remember. There was
a dance and I was dancing on it but since Dev knew
me from my girl band (days), he asked me to sing,"
Tannishtha was quoted as saying.
"The best part of it is I didn't record the song
and lip-synced in front of the camera. I sang the
song live while shooting for that sequence," she
"When I was a child I used to hear these songs
sung by Rajasthani construction workers and the
tunes kind of stayed in my mind...as a child you
can't really ignore what they are singing. The tune,
over the years, also changes; so I started
improvising and I made many changes," the actress
