As per reports, famous Bollywood choreographer Choreography queen, Saroj Khan, has been roped in to direct a dance sequence in Arindam Sil’s next film ‘Byomkesh Pawrbo’ starts rolling camera after the second Byomkesh, the upcomming film is going to be the screen adaptation of Sharadindu Bondyopadhyay’s ‘Amriter Mrityu’.
The last time Saroj Khan choreographed for a Bengali film was when she was assisting B Sohanlal. It was Uttam Kumar-Mala Sinha starrer Sathi Hara, and the young assistant choreographer had come down to Kolkata to put together a routine for the on-screen couple.
It is a very important song for the film. It is a majlish song, with Bhojpuri influences, set in erstwhile Bowbazar and shows the mahafil of Golap Bai. Golap is played by Sayantika Banerjee. Composed by Bickram Ghosh, who suggested the name of Saroj for choreographing of this song and the song has lyrics by Sutapa Basu and is sung by Ujjayini.
Byomkesh Pawrbo’, based on ‘Amriter Mrityu’ by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay, the film features Abir Chatterjee as Byomkesh Bakshi. Ritwick Chakraborty plays Ajit and Sohini Sarkar reprise her role as Satyabati in this sleuth saga and some new characters like Juthika Mallick (June Malia), Biswanath Mallick (Kaushik Sen), Yamunadas Gangaram (Ashok Singh), Badrinath Das (Rajatabha Dutta), Manotosh (Padmanabha Dasgupta), and Sukhmoy Kundu (Sumanta Mukhopadhyay).
The director informs us that the song will be sent to Saroj Khan, once it is recorded. “Sarojji asked for the song herself, so she could choreograph an act and send us. She wants to make sure that there are no glitches when we shoot it. That is why, she has asked me to take a look at the act she will send and then suggest any changes that I might want.
”Can you imagine such a famous choreographer taking so much interest in just one song? She has been asking me a zillion questions about the film, and I am constantly exchanging messages with her. She is so involved. Aami aar changes ki bolbo onake… This is why she is Saroj Khan,” added Arindam.
She readily agreed to the proposal, Saroj Khan will be with Sayantika for an entire day to gauge her body-language before getting down to the choreography. “I cannot just listen to a song and choreograph it. I need to know the situation, the genre of the film, the director’s vision of it. I have watched Sayantika’s dance. I think she is a beautiful dancer and I am looking forward to choreographing her,” said she and will finalize the dance sequence very soon.
