Bengali film actor Prosenjit Chatterjee and his Praktan co-star Rituparna Sengupta have come together in a pujo album ‘Gaan Parar Pujo’. Lending voice to an album of songs for the first time, Prosenjit has sung ‘Aaj Addar Tale Tale’ as the lead singer with popular musicians Anindyo Chatterjee, his band member Upal and ‘Praktan’ playback sensation Iman Chakroborty joining him in the chorus.
“I am a bad singer but still they bear with me. Any praise for this album should be credited to Anindya and Upal and others. The lyrics are tinged with the nostalgia of my childhood,” the actor said before the launch at a city hotel here on Thursday.
With Rituparna Sengupta also lending her voice to a puja album for the first time, she has done the narratives for this album tying up the string of songs.
“Yes, you can say in a way we have come together again after ‘Praktan’ in the same project,” Prosenjit said. Upal, who has conceptualised the whole album, said the album has five parts.
“The album, being promoted digitally, is expected to build a strong Bengali connection beyond geographical boundaries,” Prosenjit said.
The peppy and melodious album also comprises songs of Rupankar Bagchi and National award winner Bengali hit Chotuskone sensation Lagnojita Chakroborty.
The two Bengali stars, Rituparna Sengupta and Prasenjit Chatterjee have come together in several Bengali films like Utsav, Ei Ghar Ei Sansaar, Baba Keno Chakor, Ei Ghaar Ei Sansaar and several others had parted ways professionally and personally nearly 14 years ago.
