The Hindi film, directed by debutant Mahesh Kodiyal tells the story of a woman abandoned by her only son and then goes to live with her daughter and son-in-law.
"I had great time working for this film. As far as my performance goes I think you all should see and tell me how I am. All I can say is that if every woman doesn't cry when she watches the film, then I will change my name," Bhosale told reporters here last night.
The veteran singer has done many music videos but it is for the first time that she is doing a lead role in a movie.
The film also stars Padmini Kolhapure, Ram Kapoor, Navin Kaushik and Shivani Joshi. Produced by Subhash Dawar-Nitin Shankar the film is slated to release on November 23.
The versatile songstress feels that there is no one in the industry today who can take her place.
"There is no one because I have sung all types of songs in different styles, in different languages. I have sung Russian, English ...I have sung songs in Malayalam and all types of songs. I haven't seen anyone who has done that," she said.
