Monali gears up to release her first Puja’s song

  • Print


After years of doing playback in films, the National Award-winning singer Monali Thakur is all set to release her first Bengali single on Saturday. This is also her first Bangla Puja’s song. Monali has not only recorded the song, but has also shot for a peppy video before flying off to Switzerland. “Ei gaanta shunlei naachte ichchhey korbe,” said an excited Monali from Switzerland.
“It was a sudden decision. We recorded the song and shot the video in a day’s time,” she added. While the song, Dugga Elo, is composed by Guddu, it is penned by Indranil Das.
“It is my way of celebrating Durga Puja this year. This foot-tapping number is packed with Bangaliana and captures the Puja flavour just right. Recording the song was so much fun,” said Monali, whose father Shakti Thakur was also a noted playback singer in Bengal.
As a child, she appeared in a Bengali television show, Aalokito ek Indu, in which she played the lead role of Indubala.
