Jaywant Pandya’s CineTeleVision remembers R.D. and S.D.
A film to be made on S.D.
As today on 4th January, hindi film music lovers are mourning over great music director R.D. Burman’s 15th death anniversary and remember his great malodious songs, there is one good news coming from R.D’s native Tripura.
News is that the Films Division will make a movie on the life of legendry music maestro Sachin Dev Burman.
The director of the Eastern Regional Centre of the Films Division, Rajiv Kumar has sent a letter informing about the decision to the Tripura government. "The State government has pledged the film division to extend all support and cooperation in making the film," Tripura Information and Cultural Affairs Minister Anil Sarkar said.
Renowned Bengali film actor-director Dilip Roy will direct the proposed movie. A commemorative postage stamp on S.D. Burman was brought out last year by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology coinciding with the 101st birth anniversary of the music composer.
Anil Sarkar said: "The Tripura government has introduced Sachin Dev Burman Memorial Award in 2006 and it is presented to well-known singers and musicians."
In the sadness of absence of these two great maestros, we can just say,
“Hum bekhudi mein tumko pukare chale gaye!”
