They are both singers living in the same city, but Jojo and Kabir Suman only met recently and even had that ‘aww’ moment!
It was not on stage, not even for a musical programme. The duo bumped into each other on the sets of Suman Mukhopadhyay’s screen adaptation of Kangal Malsat!
Incidentally, both singers play important roles in the film. While Kabir Suman is the primordial talking crow, Dandabayas, Jojo essays the role of Begum Johnson. “Can you imagine, living in Kolkata, we had never met before?” asks Jojo, adding that she had been in awe of the songwriter-singer since his “Tomake chai” days.
Kabir Suman too was no less surprised with this meeting. “He even told me that. But I’m happy that finally we got to meet,” says Jojo.
The singer, who debuted on the big screen with Prabhat Roy’s “Duranta Prem” and followed it up with many a telefilm, says acting is as close to her heart as music.
“Last year, I did a short film, ” Raater Bioscope”, which was appreciated by many. There’s nothing like doing challenging roles,” she adds. Jojo is also part of Kaushik Ganguly’s ” Laptop”, which is slated for release this year.
