Showstopper of New York Fashion Week, playback singer for Kunal Kohli’s ‘Phir Se’ and Prakash Jha’s ‘Jai Gangaajal’ and now sharing a screen with superstar Amitabh Bachchan. Well, we are not talking about any B-towner, we are talking Amruta Fadnavis. Yes! Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ wife is breaking all the stereotypes.
Amruta Fadnavis will be seen in a music video with Big B. The song titled ‘Phir Se’ has been shot at the recently revamped grand Opera House on November 29. The song is in the form of conversation between the duo which shows Amruta wanting to seek admission in a performing arts institute headed by Mr Bachchan. The duo will also be seen in a dance sequence in the video. Mrs Fadnavis is seen wearing a fiery red dress and black heels. Produced by Bhushan Kumar under the T-Series label the song is directed by choreographer Ahmed Khan.
On Tuesday, all the netizens were in for a surprise when Big B tweeted:

In the past, Amruta has addressed television shows, rallies, concerts and women’s seminars.
Though in the past Chief Minister’s wives were always seen as unadventurous and apolitical, Amruta’s move is receiving mixed reactions from people. There were some who encouraged her to ignore critics and move ahead while some politicians pulled her down for dancing when people are dying due to demonetisation.
Here are some of the tweets:

Obviously scales are different but how many think Amruta Fadnavis would get to dance with @SrBachchan if she were not CM’s wife ?
