Actresses bitten by singing bug
Perhaps 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 reportedly added.

"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 said.
