Kolkata, September 11 (Washington Bangla Radio): Actress and reputed dancer Mamata Shankar, singers Haimanti Shukla, Raghab, Monomoy Bhattacharya, Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar, Ranajit Sengupta were present at the music CD launch of Shirin Sengupta, a well known name in the music arena of Kolkata. The launch of the music album ‘Phire Paowa’ took place at Sandre Hall in the Calcutta School of Music.

The album consists of ten songs. Jodi Bolo, Bajena keno. Keno janina are some of the songs that one will find in the album”.


In a yellow ochre and red sari, Mamata Shankar looked calm and serene. The bun in place and the gold necklace gave her a radiant look. The actress wished Shirin all the best for her endeavors in the world of music. Commenting on the sad state of the music scene today, the actress felt that it will be better if the audience becomes aware of the problems associated with piracy and takes steps to prevent them. Even after working for so many years in front of the camera, the actress is still frightfully afraid in front of the camera. She remembered one of the titles that the late director Rituparno Ghosh gave her. She was called as the new comer heroine by the director. “Every time I entered the set, Ritu used to say that everyone must talk in hushed voices or I might get scared. I simply cannot believe that he is no more” said Mamata Shankar. The actress who had acted in the late director’s film Abohomaan plans to see his film Satyanweshi. She is busy with her role of “Anno Ma” in Star Jalsa’a hit mega serial Bhalobasha.com.
