Debaditya has finally got his wish. The director, whose “8:08 er Bonga Local” is all set to hit the screens on April 13, is happy that Kabir Suman has finally given his consent to sing a number in the project.
Says the director, “The number, “Roj sokal ghum theke otha/Ek i routine sei ek i chhota” is penned by Srijato, while Tanmoy Bose has done the score for it. Right from the start, we were all keen on having Kabir Suman sing it. In fact, Srijato and Tanmoyda had spoken to him also about it. But at that point, he had politely declined saying that he was not too keen on singing in films. We next went ahead and recorded the track with Shaan and Nirmalya.”
Ayub Bachchu is also supposed to record the song soon.
Adds the filmmaker, “After placing the track in the film, I felt that Kabir Suman’s voice was best-suited for the song. I wanted to give it another shot. This time around, Tanmoyda went and met him. The veteran singer heard the song and gave his nod for the same. That was some achievement. I could not have asked for more. It has tentatively been decided that the recording will happen on January 17.”
This song will be there in the film at least four times. Ask the director which version will finally make it to the film and he explains, “I would want Kabir Suman’s rendition to be the title track. We will have all the versions in the film.” When CT got in touch with the singer, he said, “Yes, I am singing the song in the film.”
