Actors often pay tributes to iconic Bollywood stars. Ranveer Singh, for example, entertained audiences by grooving to Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan’s popular tracks at an awards function.

Varun Dhawan has done the same with Govinda’s songs. Now, Radhika Apte is set to join the club. She will be paying tribute to singer Asha Bhosle. But instead of performing at an awards show, the Phobia star will perform at a public venue in Mumbai.

A source close to the actor says, “Radhika is trained in contemporary dance. She took a professional course in the dance form in London (UK). The actor will pay tribute to Ashaji by dancing on her popular tracks such as ‘Aaj rapat jaye to’ (Namak Halaal; 1982), ‘Jaane do na’ (Saagar; 1985), etc. Radhika will perform with choreographer Terence Lewis. The duo will showcase a mix of contemporary and Latin dance forms. The performance will take place on September 8.”
