Celebrating the festivities in Kolkatta, the title track of KAHAANI `Ami shotti bolchi' is in the truest sense a virtual tour of the City of Joy.

Touring Kolkotta during the auspicious festival of Durga Puja, the song takes watchers through prime locations like Howrah Bridge, Kumartuli, Lal Bazar and other iconic places that the city boasts off.

Says director Sujoy Ghosh "My film has two heroines, Vidya Balan and Kolkata, and this song was for the latter."

Sung by the legendary Usha Uthap of 'Darling' fame, the songstress now starts the New Year with a bang with `Ami shotti bolchi'. Adds Sujoy, "I've always wanted Didi to sing for me but didn't approach her till Vishal came up with this song. Its trademark Kolkata and Didi is the voice of Kolkata."

Talking about how the song came about explains the director "The words, `Ami shotti bolchi' (I'm speaking the truth) just popped out while chatting with Vishal (co-composer Vishal Dadlani) and became the starting point for a song that's been shot on the streets of Kolkata."

If sources are to be believed a large chunk of the film's tight budget went into the team's safety during the shoot of the song, not only due to the high-risk locations but also because of the growing mobs that would follow the cast and crew while in the city.

Picturized on the protagonist, Vidya Balan, who goes in search for her missing husband, the song promises to be nothing short of a traveler's delight.

Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, Viacom 18's KAHAANI comes to a theatre near you on 9th March 2012.
