MUMBAI: Ms Amruta Fadnavis, wife of Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, is a first lady with difference in India.
She has just entered Bollywood by making her debut as a playback singer for Prakash Jha’s movie Jai Gangaajal.
Amruta has sung a devotional song for free in this film which stars Priyanka Chopra.
Actually, Amruta was recording a song for another movie when Jai Gangaajal director Prakash Jha heard her voice and approached her to sing the Jai Gangaajal song.
“When Prakash Sir heard me sing that song, he felt my voice suited the situation in his film. And that’s how he contacted me,” Amruta said.
She said her chief minister husband is very happy and has liked the song. “So, it’s a good start,” said Amruta.
She said, “It was an overwhelming experience. The music by Salim and Sulaiman and the lyrics by Manoj Muntashir are so beautiful that I was totally lost in my emotions.”
