PANKAJ MULLICK INTERVIEWED BY JAYANTA CHOWDHURY :-


JC – MAY I MENTION THE SONG YOU ARE TRYING TO SPEAK ABOUT?
PM – TELL.
JC – “PIYA MILAN KO JANA”.
PM – YES. BUT YOU DO NOT KNOW THE INCIDENTS RELATED WITH “PIYA MILAN KO JANA”.
JC – NO.
PM – IT IS A VERY SURPRISING THING. KHEMCHAND PRAKASH, WHO COMPOSED MUSIC FOR SAIGAL’S “TANSEN” IN BOMBAY, HIS OTHER IDENTITY IS AS A WONDERFUL CHOREOGRAPHER – EXCELLENT HE WAS! HE HAD TAUGHT A BOL OF KATHAK TO

KAMLESH KUMARI (THE DANER IN THE FILM). HE COULD PLAY THE TABLA AS WELL. HE WAS PLAYING THE BOLS AND KAMLESH KUMARI WAS DANCING, WHEN I SUGGESTED THAT A SONG COULD BE USED IN THE SITUATION.
KHEMCHAND WAS MY ASSISTANT IN THE FILM. PHANI MAJUMDAR, THE DIRECTOR APPRECIATED THE IDEA. ARZOO SAHAB LUCKNOWVI WAS ASKED TO SEE IF A SONG COULD BE WRITTEN ON THE BOLS OF THE TABLA. THE ENTIRE KATHAL BOL WAS PRESENTED AS A SONG. I TOLD THE DIRECTOR THAT I HAD TO SING IT IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA AS WELL.
JC- I RECALL YOU SANG THE SONG WHILE PLAYING A SITAR, ONSCREEN.
PM – THAT I DO NOT RECALL NOW… NO! I REMEMBER. I WAS PLAYING THE TANPURA.
JC- O! TANPURA…
