The singers had collaborated on the project about two years ago
Popular contemporary singer Bappa Mazumder collaborated with Indian singer Sona Mohapatra for a romantic duet almost two years ago, but its release had been delayed for various reasons.
After the behind the scene moments of the song started making rounds on Facebook recently, fans of the singers have become thrilled again with anticipation.
Now, Bappa himself has given a potential timeframe for the release of the song, which has been recorded both in Bangla and Hindi.
Talking to Showtime, the singer said that the song will be released in a couple of weeks. “Most probably it will be out before the Eid.”
“ArtistSpread is taking care of everything. They have more information regarding the song’s release date and the platform on which it will be released,” he said.
ArtistSpread is a music distribution platform by Creinse.
Bappa, however, added: “Initially, the plan was to release a music video with the song, but I suppose that will not happen now.”
The romantic song was first written in Bangla, titled “Bondhu Re,” by lyricist Shahan Kabondho and composed and arranged by Bappa.
Later, eminent Indian lyricist Nusrat Badr wrote a Hindi version of the song, titled “Saanwari.”
Bappa and Mohapatra lent their voices to both versions of the song which will be released simultaneously in Bangladesh and India by Creinse and Sony.
Sona Mohapatra, a familiar voice in contemporary Indian music and Bollywood, is known for many songs, including “Bahara,” “Jiya Lage Na” and “Ambarsariya.”
