Governor K N Tripathi a distinguished poet adds another feather to his cap agreeing to write songs for an upcoming bilingual movie on patriotism and nationalistic values.
The song for the movie quot;Jowar Bhataquot; in Bengali and quot;Rishteyquot; in Hindi will be sung by BJP leader and Union MoS for heavy industries Babul Supriya.
FTII director Gajendra Chauhan will act in the role of a doctor in the film.
quot;The director came to me and narrated the story. He liked one of my poems. He wanted to use it as a song in his movie. I gave him the permission to use itquot; Tripathi said.
Tripathi said he was happy that his song was being used in a movie and that he would also be present during the screening of it.
The film will be directed by Kolkata-based filmmaker Milan Bhowmick who has directed a few movies in the past.
quot;We are happy that Honorable Governor has allowed us to use his poem. The poem which we will be using as a song fits the sequence and the theme of the filmquot; Bhowmick said.
Gajendra Chauhan plays the role of a doctor who is the son of an ex-military officer played by Alok Nath.
quot;The movie is about patriotism nationalistic values and how in the existing system an ex-military officer who has scarified everything for his country draws less pension than a retired politician. The song penned by the Governor reflects the pathos and pain of a soldierquot; Bhowmick said.
Gajendra Chauhan saidquot; Every human being has an artistic side. It only needs a trigger to flourish. We all know that Honorable Governor is a poet who has penned several poems.
