MUMBAI: Remember Lady Chatterjee, Indiaâ€™s first animated item girl, dressed provocatively in low slung jeans, a tank top, with a bindi to go, singing Bangla rap? Sheâ€™s back with a new song Pyar Aur Dosti from the same album Lady Chatterjee, launched by Saregama.
Says the voice-behind-the-face, singer and composer Sawan Dutta, â€œThe first video, which came on air a few months ago, explored chat room relationships and virtual encounteRs This song, Pyar Aur Dosti, is a Hindi ballet; itâ€™s more acoustic, softer, and more thoughtful. The video reflects this, and likewise takes a more mature look at the grey areas within love and friendship. Like the last video, this will be a mix of animation and real photography.â€
And will the video feature the singer this time? â€œYes, the video will flit between Lady Chatterjee and me with my musicians. I have some awesome instrumentalists on board Ajay Prasanna for classical flute, Dabba Malik for western classical cello and Kapil Srivastava on guitar. I have combined these very diverse sounds in the song!â€
So whatâ€™ll Lady Chatterjee be wearing this time? â€œLady Chatterjee will be seductive and naughty as ever. Sheâ€™ll be wearing the same clothes, actually. Thatâ€™s become her identity. Sheâ€™s like Superman!â€ The video has been directed by CB Arun Kumar, who also directed the first video.
