Shabana Azmi is all set to feature in a new avatar in an upcoming children’s movie ‘The Wishing Tree‘. Last the actress was seen in a children’s movie ‘Makdee’, where she played a role of a witch. But this time she will be seen playing the tree goddess. The film is directed by Manika Sharma, who will make her debut as a director.
Today the first song of the movie, ‘Kai Sadiyon Pehli’ was released. The 5 minute 18 seconds video see Shabana Azmi as we have never seen her before. Sunidhi Chauhan’s voice in the song will certainly connect with the children. Music looks good and catchy. The cinematography in the video is the best thing in it. Shabana Azmi truly looks like a goddess here.
Shabana Azmi said, “I am doing a special appearance in this very special film. I play the tree goddess. Quite a long way from marrying a tree in Aparna Sen’s Sati.” After so long Amitabh Bachchan and Shabana are coming back together for the first time since Main Azaad Hoon in 1989. Interestingly the tree in ‘The Wishing Tree’ is given voice by Amitabh Bachchan.
‘The Wishing Tree’ is all set to releases on June 9.
