Bollywood star Vidya Balan raps for her radio show

Monday 15 April, 2019


Bollywood actress Vidya Balan sang a rap song for the first time for her radio show on Indian network Big FM.

The show, ‘Dhun Badal Ke Toh Dekho’, airs every weekday from 7 pm to 9 pm.

According to the station, as the show aims to bring imperative social topics to the forefront, the rap by the actress highlights the stereotypical mindset and touches upon challenges which are still not widely discussed in the society.

The rap encourages people of the nation to open-up and participate in positive conversations about social challenges and issues like the pressure of looking good on social media, ego issues amongst couples if the woman earns more than the man, mental illness, and superstition among others.

Vidya Balan said: "I had never imagined myself doing a rap but keeping in tune with the theme of the show, I think a rap was befitting. Also because of the kind of subjects that are being explored on the show, rap seemed liked the best format to use."

Sunil Kumaran, Country Head, Thwink BIG, BIG FM said: "The rap reinforces the theme of the show and touches upon some serious topics, which we as a society refrain from discussing. We are looking forward to create a positive change in India with thought provoking content that gives audiences a fresh new perspective, on key topics."
