The much-awaited concert I Am Asha by the eternal diva of Bollywood music, Asha Bhosle has just got more exciting – the legendary Rekha will now be part of it!
The organizers Ccreans Communications confirmed to Masala.com that Rekha has agreed to be on stage with Asha Bhosle who will be engaging in a unique ‘musical conversation’ with the audience at the concert where she will relive her 70 years in the industry though dialogues and songs. Giving her company will be actor Farooq Shaikh who will moderate the concert.
Rekha will relive the Umrao Jaan magic along with Asha and her co-star in the classic, Farooq on stage. The 1981-release, that had fantastic music by Khayyam and songs rendered by Asha, was one of the most significant films of the actress’ career and even today, the songs are considered to be a huge milestone in Asha’s remarkable career.
Incidentally, this will be the first time that Rekha is appearing on stage in Dubai. And the only reason she agreed, say the organisers, is to pay her tribute to Asha Bhosle.
‘I am Asha’ will be held on December 13, 2013 at Sheikh Rashid Hall, Dubai World Trade Centre.
