Monica Bedi turns singer!
She made her small-screen debut and comeback to the glam world with Bigg Boss 2. Then she signed on two movies. And now, Monica Bedi is turning singer and that too for a spiritual album! Monica has rendered her voice for a spiritual album ‘Ek Onkaar’ which is a
compilation of one of the revered mantras of the Sikhs.
It was her image that won her this opportunity, Monica tells us. “People look at me as a strong woman who has gone through trials and tribulations in life and has bounced back. But it was my faith and belief in God and the fact that I surrendered myself to Him and started praying, that has seen me through the darkest period of my life. Through this album, I want to spread the message that belief and faith in God will help solve all life’s problems,” says the actress, humbly.
For someone who has had no professional training in singing, she sailed through the recording. “It was an absolutely new experience for me, and an extremely exciting one, but I did a decent job,” laughs Monica. So would she consider a career in singing in the near future? “For that, I would require proper training, but after doing this, I have got immense confidence in my capabilities. And it’s good to learn singing because it helps you develop so many expressions, so it’s a
plus point for any actor.”
Ask her about her ‘good friend’ Rahul Mahajan, who she got pally with on Bigg Boss 2 and all she tells us is that she is too caught up with work — her two films and another reality show — to meet him, or any of her other friends from the show. But for now, Monica’s singing another tune, and she’s loving every sur and taal of it!
