I got an oppor­tu­ni­ty to have a quick chit chat with this ver­sa­tile & tal­ent­ed music com­poser ABHIJIT GHOSHAL on this…

Q. Who inspired you the most?
A. Lata Ji, Pt. Ajoy Chakraborty, Pt.Shekhar Sen.

Q: How this song “Meri PYAARI GUDIYA ” born?
A. Meri Pyari Gudiya[MPG] is the brain­child of Abhi­jit Aniket Adil and it is a song of every cit­i­zen who loves his lit­tle doll- his bitiya. MPG is basi­cal­ly a father’s per­spec­tive towards his daugh­ter, a par­tic­u­lar seg­ment of emo­tions which has rarely been addressed.

Q. Who is your favourite avorite lyri­cist & singer from indus­try?
A. Amitabh Bhat­tacharya, Majrooh Saab, Lata ji and Asha Ji

Q. How Shaan react­ed after lis­ten­ing this con­cept of song?
A. He heard the con­cept and read­i­ly agreed to sing the song. He had only one con­di­tion: that he would not charge any­thing for this song and his voice has nev­er been used in such a man­ner.

Q. You were also a part of real­i­ty show saregama­pa what change you see in today’s upcom­ing new singers on such real­i­ty shows & what one advice you will give them?
A. Real­i­ty shows are good when tak­en as a ‘plat­form’ to start your jour­ney. But many a time, the con­tes­tants take it for grant­ed that the chan­nel will make their future and the judges will go out and out to make their career, that is a false thought process. That is the start of the down­fall.
Plz remem­ber that two min­ute noodles doesn’t stay palat­able after 5min­utes. And sweet savories Rab­dee and Kalakand take hours of boil­ing to get that fla­vor. So noth­ing replaces hard work- ear­lier under­stood the bet­ter

Q. Tell us about your upcom­ing Bol­ly­wood projects?
A. Yes, there are let’s wait for the name of the track/ film.

Q. As read­ers are real food­ie here want to know Which is your fav dish cooked by your mom ?
A. As you all can see from my pic that I am also a biggg food­ie, my mom used to make amaz­ing Kheer (Paayesh in Bangla) and my wife Soma­li is one of the best cooks in the world.I love Biryani and ANY PANEER dish cooked by her. Fish also (but the vari­eties wth lesser bones-kaan­ta).

Q. Any­thing you want to share with read­ers here?
A. Keep lov­ing the good cre­ative work of Abhi­jit Aniket Adil.We are musi­cal­ly yours.
