Music Composer Debojyoti Mishra at Song Recording of Hindi Film Pakhi


The song recording of the Hindi film Pakhi took place recently at a studio in Kolkata. Present at the recording was music director Debojyoti Mishra and singer Nikita Gandhi.

“The film Pakhi is about a young girl who fights all the hurdles to become a successful basketball player. The struggle of a woman is very different from the struggles of a man in our society. She has to try twice as hard as the man. The film has been so well made that the audience at the national level will not be able to understand that this Hindi film has been shot in Kolkata. The story and the director has been able to inspire me very much” said music composer Debojyoti Mishra.

On his selection of Nikita Gandhi, the music composer said “I wanted a voice for the film. She will not merely sing the song but also carry forward the film’s narrative. I knew Nikita beforehand and I made the director listen to her voice. He liked her voice at once and she was given this job”.

Akansha Singh, Jaya Seal Ghosh, Chetan Chitnis has acted in this film directed by Abhra and Akash.

Upcoming Kolkata HIndi film Pakhi shooting in progress in Kolkata; A Motivating Sports Film


Hindi feature film “PAKHI” directed By Abhra and Akash is currently being shot in different parts of the city. Akanksha Singh (captain of the Basket Ball team for India), Chetan Chitnis (Marathi Hero), Jaya Seal Ghosh was present at the shooting when Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent went for the shooting coverage of the film.


The film Pakhi is about a young girl who fights all odds to become a basketball player. “The film is about freedom. How the young girl gains freedom and overcomes all obstacles to become a shining star in Basketball. We are shooting those sequences today where she gets selected in the team and she is seen training hard with coach Shukla” said the director in between shots.

Chetan Chitnis plays the role of Babai in the film. “The character that I play is very aggressive. He does not have a good rapport with his father and that is the reason for his aggressive nature” said the actor. The actor revealed that he was having a great time shooting for the film as the language is Hindi, despite being a Bengali film.

“I face no trouble. When the director discusses a scene in Bengali, he has to take the trouble of telling me it again in Hindi. He is doing the hard work actually” revealed the actor.


Sporting a cropped hair look for the role of the coach in this film, Jaya Seal Ghosh was hard to recognize at first glance. “The character I play is the coach of the Bengal women’s basketball team. Her name is Shukla. She is a strong and determined character. I used to play games during my school days and that experience is coming in handy while doing this role. Moreover I have done my research by reading books, observing a lady coach named Sangita and also played games so as to make the character look credible on the screen. I have also asked Akanksha to correct me at times where I go wrong in portraying the character of the coach. We are having a great time shooting the film” said the actress.


Bickram Ghosh will be composing the music of this film. The director revealed that the musician was ecstatic to compose music for a sports oriented film. There is just a single theme song in the film which will be played throughout the film.

The film is eyeing for release on Bengali New Year’s Day 2016.
