National Excellence award winner actor Manie created a musical record with legendary music director Bappi Lahiri recently at his Juhu studio in Mumbai. Bappi Lahiri recorded a playback song in Manie’s voice for a forthcoming venture.
Says Bappi Lahiri, “this is a Bengali song which has been sung by Manie and I must tell you all people that he has sung exceptionally brilliantly. Although Manie is a south Indian but his Bengali dictions are amazingly better than most Bengalis. I am very happy to work with him. I am sure we will again work soon.”
When asked Manie about the song recording he said, ‘I am really honoured and blessed to work with a legend like Bappi da. I was happy to spend some quality time with him talking about his works and his successful musical journeys. I hope to work with him again.”
With this song recording, Manie created a national record by becoming the first south Indian actor to record a full playback song in his own voice in Bengali.
