Hema Malini has sent the songs to Lata Mangeshkar on Whatsapp and is waiting for her approval. She sang professionally for the first time in 1974 in the film Haath Ki Safai. The song ‘Peene Wale Ko Peene Ka Bahana’ composed by Kalyanji – Anandji became a big hit and Hemaji was asked to sing more of her own songs on screen. “But I had Lataji to sing for me. I was not prepared to sing more of my own songs then.
However lately I feel the urge to express myself through song. Maybe its age,” says India’s biggest female superstar who is now a successful BJP politician. The 72 year old actress is pleased with her return to singing. She further says, “I’ve sung before. I’ve done devotional numbers earlier. But this time, I think I’ve finally sung to my satisfaction. The two songs are composed by Anjali Dayal. Have I sung the songs well? I hope I have. But I will feel satisfied only when Lata Mangeshkar ji listens to them and approves.”
