‘Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai’ not inspired by Lata-Asha rivalry: Deepti Naval
Noted actress Deepti Naval says her upcoming TV show “Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai” is not about the alleged rivalry between legendary singers and sisters Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.
“Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai” is about two sisters and their bitter-sweet relationship that turns into rivalry.
It revolves around siblings Kalyani and Ketki, for whom music meant the world. They shared a soulful bond but drifted apart so much that the distances could not be fathomed.
Naval, 59,and Zarina Wahab have been signed on to play the older generation of the singers.
“It is not a story of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle…it’s a different story. There seems to be similarity as it’s the story of two sisters and one thinks of them (Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle). But it is not their story, it has nothing to do with them,” Naval told PTI in an interview.
According to the “Chashme Buddoor” actress, the show has a wonderful story, which needs to be told.
“I took up the show as it has a completely different concept, something not tried on television. The subject makes sense, it is not just anything random. It is a realistic story,” she said.
Naval revealed that as a child she learnt a bit of singing and was now looking forward to take it up again, that is when “Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai” was offered to her.
“I love music…I like to sing. But I am not a singer…I hum. I wanted to learn music and this offer (show) came up. I think it (show) came at the right time,” she said.
