Mumbai: The beautiful and talented B-town actress Priyanka Chopra has only praises for ‘Ishqiya’ and offers her congratulations to the film producer, composer and singer, none others than Vishal Bhardwaj and his wife Rekha. This rural drama was directed by Abhishek Chaubey and represents his directorial debut. As for Bhardwaj, he produced it but also wrote the music for the film that saw Naseeruddin Shah, Vidya Balan and Arshad Warsi in the leading roles.
During the 58th edition of the National Awards, which took place in New Delhi this Thursday, Rekha was called the best female playback singer for her performance in the song called ‘Badi Dheere’ from the flick ‘Ishqiya’, and Bhardwaj managed to get the best music director award for the movie in question.
It seems to us that these awards won by the super stars as well as the quality of the movie production have also left a mark on the actress Priyanka Chopra who had only good things to say about the film and them. The Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra told reporters that “I am very proud of Vishalji and Rekha ma’am. Ishqiya was a brilliant film. So congratulations to them.” The actress worked alongside Bhardwaj in ‘7 Khoon Maaf’ and ‘Kaminey’. “I had a good fortune of working with them in two films. Vishal sir is very talented as a music director and as a director and as a singer,” the Bollywood celebrity wanted to add.
You may not know it, but this is the very first national award that Rekha has managed to win in her career. As for Bhardwai, this is the fourth time he got a national award. We have to say that we agree with Priyanka, as the movie production ‘Ishqiya’ and the item song ‘badi Dheere’
were in fact very successful.
