It has been all yours love and the blessings of God, elder ones and my Maa that I actually did both Lalon Fakir and Antony Firingee. Gautam Ghosh and Srijit Mukherji, both of them believed in me and I truly believe that I did justice to both the characters. Both the characters have some historical values in terms of music. Be it Lalon Fakir in “Moner Manush” or Antony Firingee in “Jaatishwar”, both have given me immense pleasure, wonderful experience and definitely it has left a remarkable mark in my film career.
What we made possible in “Jaatishwar” is that Antony Firingee actually met Lalon Fakir in the film which gave a great height all together. It is regardless to say that when these two people are coming together we could definitely expect some of the best songs.
Many people have already exclaimed the fact to me that the songs of “Jaatishwar” are intoxicating and mesmerizing. It is true that in real life Lalan Fakir being an uneducated man composed such beautiful songs and that all people are humming. Lalan Fakir is more native, and he didn’t even get a chance to attend school, but when he composed the songs, then it became a huge hit which we all still use. Antony Firingee though is not uneducated, but being a Portuguese he composed such beautiful Bengali songs that they are unforgettable.
“Jaatishwar” is surely a very deep rooted film and hope you all will love it. Rest you all decide. It’s releasing on 17th January, 2014 and I am sure you all will love it
