An actor turning towards the mike has almost turned into a trend in Bollywood. And this trend has not just influenced Indian actors but our Pakistani counterparts too. Meera (of Nazar fame) has joined the same bandwagon by singing in the Pakistani version of Devdas being directed by Iqbal Kashmiri.
Meera plays the role of courtesan Chandramukhi in the film. Like every other actor-turned-singer, Meera too, adds that it was the director's idea to make her sing the two songs.
Incidentally, it may be recalled that even Madhuri Dixit who played the role of Chandramukhi in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas crooned a song in the film. Meera is going Madhuri's way by also rehearsing with choreographer Saroj Khan for the mujra that she is going to perform in this version.
