"The song in question is 'Rangi Sari Gulabi Chunariya' which is a very famous 'dadra'. Not many are aware that Dixit family has boasted of some very good classical background and Madhuri's mother was trained as well in classical music. She was the one who had inspired Madhuri to pursue art, regardless of the format, and hence when the opportunity came her way to sing in Gulaab Gang, it was an impromptu decided that the mother-daughter 'jodi' would come together for this one," informs a source close to the family.
Madhuri was expectedly excited about this since in a career spanning three decades and 70 odd films, she had just recited a few lines in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas when it came to music.
The song is not just restricted to the music album but also makes a prominent appearance in the Anubhav Sinha production. While voice of Madhuri's mother is used for another senior character in the film, Madhuri is singing for herself. In fact this was the song that she recently hummed as well when the film's music launch was held in Varanasi.
Gulaab Gang is directed Soumik Sen and produced by Anubhav Sinha.
