Latin American pop diva Shakira will lend her voice to five out of 30 songs for a movie titled Desire-the Flying Butter, directed by Bangladeshi filmmaker Enamul Kabir Nirjhar.
Additionally, renowned singer from Morocco Abdel Hakim will playback for the film along with many other international artistes.
‘It’s a musical which will present some contemporary incidents in Bangladesh in a global context avoiding the real time frame and location,’ director of the movie Enamul Kabir Nirjhar told New Age.
‘The film will truly be a global one, which will be shot in several countries including Scotland, Britain, India and Bangladesh, he added.
The director is trying to present more surprises for the viewers. ‘I am trying my best to cast Shakira for acting at the film. But, I assure there will be even bigger surprises,’ said Nirjhar.
But, Nirjhar, who is also one of the producers of the movie, did not want to disclose the details of storyline, casting and release time of the movie, which is a joint production of Bangladesh and India.
Though Nirjhar assured, ‘I will gradually reveal everything.’
Music director from Kolkata Debajyoti Mishra has composed songs for the film. Nirjhar’s coalition with Debajyoti Mishra began in 2007 when the composer made the soundtrack of the director’s debut feature film Aha.
The film was screened at several international festivals like Munich, Cairo and Dubai. However, Nirjhar’s second feature film Nomuna, whose music was also composed by Mishra, is yet to get the clearance from the censor board.
