Prashantt Guptha is known for his performances in films like NEERJA, ISSAQ and IDENTITY CARD. And now the actor will soon showcase his musical prowess as he has reprised a classic from the 1952 film BAIJU BAWRA and named the album cover as Prashn.
Through his music, the actor intends to demonstrate how certain classical songs are lyrically relevant to today’s global issues and human suffering. Mohammad Rafi’s evergreen ‘Oh duniya ke rakhwale’ is the first song in this initiative that Prashantt has sung and performed to, and the aesthetically directed music video has been helmed by Sandeep Chandrra and re-composed by Ambar Das.
This original eternal song was composed by the great Naushad and penned by the equally great Shakeel Badayuni.
An elated Prashantt says, "This one song soulfully addresses the voice of all those calling upon God to see the hopelessness, sadness, struggles, loneliness, depression, seeking, and heart break.”
Prashantt’s co-star Sonam Kapoor shared the post on social media, and so did Manoj Bajpayee.

I love classical Hindi music and the fact that artists like Prashantt Guptha are bringing this golden genre back to life is amazing. Check out the PRASHN campaign for some of my favourites from the yesteryears, reprised with a modern touch. @pg2705 https://t.co/PZPjdsWrPy— Sonam Kapoor (@sonamakapoor) December 11, 2017
