It's no secret that Gautam and Pankhuri Rode are a much loved and uber-talented couple. Add to that, a beautiful romantic song celebrating the eternal love story of Radha-Krishna with the beautiful folk dance of Raas-Garba, and we have a winner! ChhanoMaano produced by White Peacock Films and Sandstone Productions has just released and the fans are surely in for a treat.
ChhanoMaano depicts the everlasting love between Gautam and Pankhuri's characters and interestingly, this is the first time the two have stepped into the vibrant world of Gujarati music! One look at the song and you will be hooked to the peppy tune and the beautiful direction of the video. The raas-garba track was extensively shot in the picturesque city of lakes, Udaipur and the video has been shot on a grand scale along with the soulful voice lent by none other than Osman Mir Sahab. Osman Sahab has proved his mettle time and again with his biggest hit, Nagada Sang Dhol from the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Ram Leela still a popular favorite and he has yet again outdone himself in the lovely song.
Speaking on the single, Gautam said, "When Pankhuri and I saw the final outcome of the video, we were elated..The picturisation was impeccable and the raas-garba sequence brought the song to life. As actors we understand each other and are very comfortable together,so it becomes effortless to shoot alongside Pankhuri. White Peacock Films and Sandstone Production surely have a great song in place, just in time for Dussehra. Hope people like it :)
"ChhanoMaano is the first time, Gautam and I have stepped into the Gujarati music space. Transforming into our characters of modern day Radha- Krishna set against the backdrop of Raas Garba was as much a learning experience as it was fun. We loved it and can't wait to see the audience’s reaction to our song.” said Pankhuri.
Taking inspiration from the traditional Gujarati folk dance and depicting the eternal love between Radha-Krishna, the producer of the song Harsh said, "Gautam and Pankhuri totally fit the bill for ChhanoMaano. Their chemistry and their understanding of each other made the process of our shoot a whole lot easier. With ChhanoMaano we wanted to give the audience a beautiful love story set against the backdrop of Raas-Garba and we have managed to depict just that!"
With lyrics by Dilip Rawal and sung by none other than the fabulous and legendary Osman Mir Sahab, ChhanoMaano has been given music to by Alap Desai and is produced by White Peacock Films and Sandstone Production. The song is out now and it will top your Navratri playlist.
