However, as per the singer this isn’t his first stint on the celluloid. ”I made my first foray into acting with a Bengali film GANE BHUBAN BHARIYE DEBO. I had also appeared on-screen, though only in a song ‘Yeh Dua Hai Meri Rab Se’ in the film SAPNE SAJAN KE. Yes, but you can say that this is my first film with Yash Raj banner in terms of acting,” reveals the singer.
Ask if he is excited or nervous and Sanu Da replies swiftly, ”No, why should I be nervous?”
