THIS popular hymn gets recreated for Nandita Roy & Shiboprosad Mukherjee's Gotro

After songs such as the melodious Rabindra sangeet, Neel digante; the peppy mood uplifting Rangabati; the lively Hitler er hotel; and the soulful Maa, the makers of Gorto have now dropped another number, Baishnob sei jon.

A recreation of Mahatma Gandhi's favorite Gujarati hymn, Vaishnava jana toh, the song is composed by music director Anindya Chattopadhyay. Shreya Ghoshal has lent her voice to the track. After Neel digante, Baishnob sei jon is Shreya's second song in the film.

Gotro is based on a social issue and tries to remind us the importance of humanity over religion by means of a heart-warming story. After the 2011 film Icche, this is Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee's second film focusing on mother-son relationship. Interestingly, the directors, who are known to deliver one film a year, after eight years have broken their own rule and Gotro will be their second film this year.

The film is produced by their banner, Windows Production. It stars Anashua Majumdar, Nigel Akkara and Manali Manisha Dey. Gotro will hit the screens on August 23, on the auspicious occasion of Janmashtami.
