New challenges can be in store even for veterans who have been there and seen it all. The same would have been the case with acting pro Sadashiv Amrapurkar when he was required to sing for his Marathi movie Hou De Jarasa Ushir, for the first time in his career spanning more than 30 years. The song in question is a fun number called ‘Dhampak Dhampak’.
“Initially, I was apprehensive to sing but Nakul Jogdeo (music director) worked very hard and made things easy for me,” said Amrapurkar during the music launch of Hou De Jarasa Ushir. Surprisingly, the veteran artist is not the only actor who has rendered a number. Actors Vishwas Sakat and Raj Ranaware have also displayed their vocal chords in the song ‘Lagnala Jayacha’.
The event, which took place in Pune, was started off by felicitating all actors, people from the crew, singers as well as technicians. Since it was the music launch, every song from the movie was played on the screen with each actor, from every particular song, narrating the experience during the shoot of the song. Film’s lead actor Abhyang Kuvlekar hosted the event.
Produced under the banner of Biroba Films and distributed by Devisha Films, the movie is directed by Wasim Maner. Apart from Amrapurkar and Kuvalekar, the film also stars Aishwarya Narkar, Sharvari Jamenis, Raj Ranaware, Chinmay Mandlekar, Aditi Sarangdhar and others. It is slated to release next year.
