RBN Web Desk: For the first time in her career, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra is all set to make her Bengali playback singing debut for an upcoming film.
Priyanka had her first brush with playback singing for the song Ullathai Killathe in the Tamil film Thamizhan (2002). In July 2012, Priyanka was the first Bollywood star to be signed by the Creative Artists Agency of Los Angeles. She travelled to the US to work on her album and collaborated with Matthew Koma, Jay Sean and Sam Watters. Priyanka’s first single—In My City—debuted on 13 September 2012 in the US.
Priyanka’s mother Madhu Chopra can speak Bengali fairly well. She spent her childhood in Jamshedpur and had a number of Bengali friends. Madhu prodded her daughter to produce regional films, and in each of them, Priyanka has lent her voice as a playback singer.
The Quantico actress, however, doesn’t know Bengali and has to pick up the language before she enters the recording studio. Her company is producing the film based on a Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay novel. It’s tentatively titled Bus Stop E Keu Nei Kothao. The film has Rahul Bose and Rituparna Sengupta in lead roles. Priyanka Chopra will playback for Rituparna.
