Mega-Serial Ganer Oparey Song Compilation Launched
The mega-serial Gaaner Oparey gained immense popularity among the people when the serial was being aired. The soul of the serial was the songs. Even after the show ended about four years back, the popularity of the serial is still intact among the viewers. Keeping this in mind, Star Jalsha released an audio CD containing the songs of the serial, Gaaner Oparey.
Prasenjit Chatterjee, Arjun Chakraborty, Gaurav Chakraborty, Indrasish Roy, Debojyoti Mishra and others were present at the occasion for the unveiling of the music CD.
Star Jalsha’s show Gaaner Oparey was a path breaking serial which sought to bridge the gap between people who looked at Tagore traditionally versus the ones who dared to break barriers and make the works of Tagore contemporary.
Keeping in mind the spirit of Bangaliana, Prasenjit Chatterjee looked dapper in a white Punjabi which the actor teamed up with a white dhoti. Speaking at the occasion, he said “For me, Rituparno Ghosh is still alive. The biggest challenge was to make him write the script on a daily basis for the mega-serial. However, we succeeded in making him do so and as a result one can see the huge popularity that the serial garnered”.
Prasenjit Chatterjee also highlighted how he made the selection of Arjun Chakraborty and Mimi for the lead roles of Gora and Pupe. “Had I revealed to Rituparno that Mimi was not so well conversant in Bengali, he would have rejected her downright. However, we worked on her and she performed extremely well. As for Gora, Arjun was on my mind and I had to do the makeup on him to make him look matured so that he would not be rejected on the basis of looking too young for the role” added Prasenjit with a smile.
Arjun Chakraborty who played the role of Gora acted as the emcee of the event. “The serial Gaaner Oparey was a huge platform for all the new actors like me, Indrasish, Mimi and others. It was a huge learning experience and that surely helped us much in whatever we are doing at present” said the actor.
Debojyoti Mishra performed the songs of the serial with his team for the assembled audiences and entertained them.
The audio CD of Gaaner Opare was released by V Music and will be readily available at the nearest music stores.
