Sonu Nigam & Shreya Ghoshal Sing For Suruchi Sangha

A-listers Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal are singing a special Puja number for Suruchi Sangha

Rupang dehi jayang dehi yasho dehi disho jahe... Before rain clouds give way to a clear, azure sky and Kolkata wakes up to the sound of Mahalaya on the airwave, chances are these shlokas from Chandipaath will find a new voice.

Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal, both A-list singers from Bollywood, have come together for a theme Puja single for state minister Arup Biswas' Suruchi Sangha. The song meticulously weaves in the chants at the end of the song. Credit for making the duo come together goes to composer Jeet Gannguli.

Making Sonu and Shreya lend their voices to a Puja song is no mean feat. Says Jeet, "The trend of customising songs for Puja began last year. It was Arupda who had asked me to compose a number. This year too we are treading the same path. Sonu is a dear friend and while recording for Raaz 3, I asked him if he would be interested in singing for Suruchi Sangha, which also happens to be my own club. He agreed. Shreya and I share a comfort zone. That's how things fell into place."

The lyrics, penned by Jeet's wife, Chandrani and Kazi Kamal Nasser, go like — Dulchhe sagar, bhangchhe dukul, jonopath shob dubchhe. The theme of Suruchi Sangha this year is Goa and the song is in sync with the ideation. Says Chandrani, "Every year, Suruchi tries to convey a social message through its theme. While last year it was about the impact of terrorism on Kashmir, this year the Puja theme revolves around marine pollution and its effect on Goa. Hope we manage to drive home the message through this single."

Jeet, who has finished recording the song, has added to it the sound of the shaankh. "I decided to blow the conch shell myself as it gave me a Puja feel, sitting here in Mumbai," he says. And what about the feedback? "Arupda has liked it. I'm waiting for Kolkatans to listen to the track," he adds.
