Deepti Naval, who has essayed a melange of powerful and memorable roles in Indian showbiz, will be seen playing a singer in the forthcoming TV show “Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai”. She says that if given a chance, she would love to portray the Nightingale of India, Lata Mangeshkar, in a movie.
“Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai”, which also stars Zarina Wahab and Amrita Rao, among others, tells the story of two sisters, Kalyani and Ketki, whose bitter-sweet relationship turns into rivalry.
The show’s narrative bears an uncanny resemblance with the story of real life sisters and Bollywood’s legendary singers Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle — but Deepti begs to differ.
“The show is not based on Lata ji and Asha ji. There seems to be a similarity between the two stories, but the story of the show is totally different. Though, if given a chance, I would love to play Lata Mangeshkar some time, may be on the big screen,” Deepti told IANS.
