The Rangeela girl is out on technicolour television

Mumbai: Actress Urmila Matondkor is putting her singing skills to test as she gears up to host a talent show on a television channel which will pit families against each other in a musical showdown. The actress says this show is a perfect fit for her. “I liked this offer because it has ingredients which I enjoy. One is music and I enjoy everything, which revolves around music and dance so it would be interesting to be associated with a musical show,” says Urmila. The actress also reveals that she loves Hindi film music. “Very few people know that I know 1000-odd Hindi films in and out and I am myself a very family-oriented person. I know very few actress who stay with their parents,” says Urmila. Some odd logic that may be, but it's best not to discount her musical claims. She has after all collaborated on a number with none less than Asha Bhosle. Best then, to ask her – quite literally – to put her money where her mouth is. And Urmila readily obliged us with a rendition. Let's just say her claims aren't entirely unjustified. A little riyaaz, however, wouldn't hurt.
