Bollywood actor Madhuri Dixit who turned 53 last week released her maiden song Candle on her birthday. As the term suggests – a Candle is a beacon of hope, something we need in this ongoing lockdown amid Covid-19 pandemic that has killed thousands across the globe.
As per Firstpost.com – While Madhuri recorded the song in LA much before the lockdown started, she later decided to release it as an ode to the frontline warriors of the coronavirus crisis. “In every person’s life, there comes a point when you feel bogged down by pressures of various kinds. So in order to express that and pick myself up again, I decided to record my first single. A candle was initially a symbol of endurance and tenacity.”
But later, she realised everyone else in the world is going through the same struggle right now. Economies are on their knees, and the destruction caused by the virus is unprecedented. “So I decided to dedicate the song to the health workers and everyone who’s struggling to keep their spirits high at this time. Candle then became a symbol of hope and peace. All of us are like candles in the rain right now. And whatever happens in your personal life, you have to be a beacon of light to other people in tough times,” she add
