Aadesh plans song on corruption

Mumbai, Nov 5 (IANS) Composer Aadesh Shrivastava wants to do a song on corruption and has asked his fans to send him ideas.

"Want to do one song on corruption, bad politicians. If you have thoughts for it or lyrics for it, please BBM (Blackberry messenger) me," the 46-year-old tweeted.

This is not the first time that he is focusing on society through his music. Last year Shrivastava released an album titled "Sounds of Peace" in an effort to promote world peace.

The album paid tribute to the victims of terror attacks across the world. It boasted of songs by Akon, Wyclef Jean, classical singer Ustaad Rashid Khan, violinist Kala Ramnath and Roop Kumar Rathod.

I don't choose my roles based on my look: Sonakshi

Many feel that Sonakshi Sinha choose her roles on the basis of her look in the film, but the actress denies it saying she gives importance to "character".

"I don't choose my roles based on what my character will wear. The roles that I have chosen till date, I have liked the characters and situations of the film. If I get to play a character who will wear western clothes and if I am comfortable, I will do it," Sonakshi told IANS in a group interview.

Seen as a village belle in her first film "Dabangg", she played a 'desi' girl in "Rowdy Rathore" too. In her next release, "Son of Sardaar", she will be seen a typical Punjabi girl.

But she is open to different roles and said: "So far people have appreciated me like this (desi avatar)... I am doing a lot of similar roles after this as well. But, of course, if I get the chance, I would want to play different roles as well."
