Swanand Kirkire's debut in Bengali cinema

News Helpline | January, 01 2012

 Swanand Kirkire is all set to make his debut in Bengali cinema with 'Paanch Adhyay'.The movie also marks the debut of Bollywood actress Dia Mirza in Bengali films. "Although Paanch Adhyay is a Bengali film, since Dia plays a half-Bengali named Ishita, there was an opportunity to look at things from her point of view and create a Hindi song," composer Shantanu Moitra said in a statement.
Pratim D Gupta, writer-director of Paanch Adhyay said, "I showed Swanand a part of the film and he came up with a couple of lines that summed up the core thought beautifully. Shantanu and I both instantly decided that he has to sing the track for the film."

The other four Bengali songs have been penned by the National Award-winning lyricist duo of Anindya Chatterjee and Chandril Bhattacharya and an English track has been written by Pratim himself.

The film also features Priyanshu Chatterjee and Soumitra Chatterjee. It is expected to release around Durga Puja in October.
