Mamta Sharma, the sultry voice behind chartbuster Munni badnaam hui from Dabangg, now wants to work with Oscar-winner A R Rahman.

The song picturised on Malaika Arora became a rage with the listeners and contributed a lot to the film's success.

And Mamta, who has already bagged Dharmendra-Sunny Deol starrer Main Yamla Pagla Deewana, is now looking forward to a chance to croon with Rahman, her favourite musician in Bollywood.

"I wish to associate myself with Rahman and sing under his music direction. I also want to work with different music directors of his generation," said Mamta.

The singer, who has shot to fame with the popularity of the item number, does not have any formal training in music.

"I don't have any special training in music. I reached this stage by listening to other singers. Today, I can sing in 11 languages," she said.

Mamta also discloses her another hidden facet. She claims she can sing in the voice of some of the other female singers including the legend, Lata Mageshkar.
