Asha Bhosle Debuting with ‘Maaee’


Age is not a boundary to try out different experiments. The proverb is appropriate for legendry singer, Asha Bhosle thats why now veteran singer has decided to show her acting skills as well. Yeah that’s true; Asha Bhosle is now finally making her debut in acting with Maaee. Confirming the news, the 77-year-old legendry singer said,

“The moment this story was narrated to me, I connected so very strongly with it as a mother and a human being even though it was so far removed from my own life and experience. I knew then and there that there was no way I could let the opportunity to essay this character pass me by.”

“Maaee” is a story about a woman, who is abandoned by her only son and then goes to live with her daughter and son-in-law. It stars Padmini Kolhapure as her daughter.

The film, to be made in Hindi, is being produced by Nitin Shankar and directed by debutant director Mahesh Kodiyal. It goes on floor in April this year and will be shot entirely in Mumbai. The singer says,

“It was something that I hadn’t done so far. My fans know very well that I do whatever my heart says is good to do.”
