Bhubaneswar, Feb 14: Oriya artistes are making a mark in the music industry. A few days ago Asish Panda directed an album, ‘Kabhi Yaadon Main’, produced by T-series starring Divya Khosla Kumar which was appreciated by all. After him, artiste Sushant Panda has directed and acted in a Hindi album produced by Venus. The album, ‘Mera Yeh Jahan’ was composed by Sudeep Jena and the track was sung by two Oriya singers, Humane Sagar and Sonam Dash, which makes it an all-Oriya endeavour.
Sushant Dash of Titilagarh said that the music video was shot in Chilika and the song depicts a love story of a couple who are deaf and blind. “In the album, Poonam Mishra acted opposite me,” said Sushant.
“We released the album February 10 on YouTube,” said Sushant who had worked as a assistant director with directors like Subhash Kapoor of ‘Jolly LLB’ fame in ‘Phas gaye re Obama’, and with Boney Kapoor in ‘Wanted’.
Sushant said he was a theatre artiste in Orissa under his Guru Ravindarjee who had urged him to learn the basics of filmmaking. Sushant has acted in many Oriya TV serials including the very popular ‘Chanda nuhe tume tara’.
“I have learnt many things from everyone I have worked with. Filmmaking is an amalgamation of different skills,” he said.
Poonam Mishra who debuted in oriya film industry with Sanjay Nayak’s Baisi Pahache Kheliba Mina had acted in some Oriya films. Her dance in the song ‘ Suna suna sakalare‘ from her first film was a big hit among the audience.
