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 Pujaâ€™s song. Monali has not only recorded the song, but has also shot for a peppy video before flying off to Switzerland. â€œEi gaanta shunlei naachte ichchhey korbe,â€ said an excited Monali from Switzerland. â€œIt was a sudden decision. We recorded the song and shot the video in a dayâ€™s time,â€ she added. While the song, Dugga Elo, is composed by Guddu, it is penned by Indranil Das. â€œIt 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,â€ 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.
