Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj on Tuesday unveiled the first song from his new film, Pataakha, starring Radhika Madan and Sanya Malhotra. The song, titled Balma, showcases the confrontational relationship between the two protagonists, who happen to be sisters at odds with each other.
The song has been sung by Rekha Bhardwaj and Sunidhi Chauhan, composed by Vishal and with lyrics written by Gulzar.
Pataakha, a comedy-drama about two sisters, Badki and Chhutki, is based on an acclaimed short-story by renowned writer Charan Singh Pathik.
Vishal, however, was supposed to begin a film with Irrfan earlier this year before the actor had to head to London for his treatment. The director ultimately put the film on hold.
When asked about it, he said, “I don’t know about the film’s status. I can tell you my heart’s status and it is that we all are praying for him. Obviously I’m missing him as a friend but also as an audience. I want to see him on screen again, whether it’s my film or someone else’s.”
Featuring Sanya Malhotra, Radhika Madan, Sunil Grover and Vijay Raaz Pataakha releases on September 28. It was previously reported that Malaika Arora will perform a special dance number for the film.
