Choreographer-director Vijay Ganguly and television actor sister Rupali Ganguly have revived their production banner, which is named after their late filmmaker father Anil Ganguly. Their first music video, Shola, features Ludo (2020) and Mismatched (2020) actor Rohit Saraf and singer Akasa Singh. The track, which dropped on Wednesday, is composed by Singh and upcoming musician Charan.

“My dad directed films like Kora Kagaz [1974], Tapasya [1975] and Saaheb [1985]. We are keen to keep his legacy alive,” says Vijay. It’s Saraf’s first music video. “The song will make you sing and dance,” says the actor.

The high-energy party number marks the first collaboration of Akasa and Rohit Saraf. Akasa has delivered back-to-back hit songs such as Naiyyo, Naagin, Aithey Aa and Dil Na Jaaneya and the young actor Rohit is renowned for his performances in Ludo, Mismatched and The Sky Is Pink. Sung, written and composed by Akasa and Charan, the vibrant song is all about a spirited girl, wedding vibes and the chemistry of the reel pair.

Akasa says, “I am so glad that Shola kicks off the wedding season. The buzz that the song has attracted way before its release was quite incredible and I’m grateful for all the love that has come by so far. The process of creating this song right from writing, to composing to rendering it with Charan was truly special. When Rohit stepped on board to feature in the video, the excitement for the release of the song just spiked up for me. I hope the listeners enjoy the song as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

Singer-writer-composer Charan says, “The times that we’re living in is rife with uncertainty and I hope that Shola alleviates some of it. As an artist, I have always endeavoured to create music that lifts the spirit of people and turns the vibe of a place around. Shola has that potential and it holds a special place in my heart because the experience of collaborating with Akasa was absolutely awesome.” 

Rohit Saraf says, “The energy of Shola is infectious and befits the wedding season that has just begun. It is the kind of song that will make you want to sing along and dance. I wish all the listeners many happy occasions that call for Shola to be played.”
