Across the Indian Ocean

Miss Sri Lanka 2009’ Gamya Wijayadasa makes her debut in Manish Manikpuri’s Aalaap with an item song called Chadhti Jawaani.

The music of the item song has been composed by the band Agnee and the song is already a rage all over Chattisgarh where Gamya performed recently at a promotional event organised by the producers Nishant Tripathi and Abhishek Mishra of Sri Shankaracharya Arts.

Gamya, who has an MBA from the University of Melbourne, says that she flew down to Raipur to shoot this song even without having heard it. “It’s a situational number that has been picturised at an engagement party of one of the pivotal characters in the film,” she says.

The song has been sung by Kanika Joshi and Bonnie Chakraborty. Being a Sri Lankan, Gamya didn’t understand most of the lyrics. “But that wasn’t an issue. The film deals with how music is used to quell Naxalism in Chattisgarh,” she adds. The film stars Amit Purohit, Pitobash, Rituparna Sengupta, Raghuvir Yadav, Omkar Das Manikpuri, Murli Sharma, Aabid Shamim and Abhimanyu Singh.
