Vidya Virsh makes her directorial debut with first single, Banjaari
The song also has Indian TikTok star Faiz Baloch, who is popularly known for Team07
Vidya Virsh, who has appeared in Kannada films like Male, Ram Leela, and Vasthu Prakara, and played a lead role in *121#, is now venturing into direction. The actor is coming up with her first Hindi single, titled Banjaari.
Vidya hails from a family which has a strong theatre background. Banjaari, shot entirely in Goa, has been designed and conceptualised by Vidya, who aims to spread a social message about a rape-free India.
The song has been sung by Shazad Ali, a contestant in Voice of India 2019. It also has Indian TikTok star Faiz Baloch, who is popularly known for Team07, sharing screen space with Vidya Virsh, and features a cameo by Vinay Chandar.
Talking about her first directorial experience, Vidya says, “Direction taught me time management and handling people with different mindsets. Rather than facing difficulties, I sometimes landed up in a situation where I got into comical confusions and had a bit of fun. Being a Kannadiga, I also had to manage communication with my co-stars, out of which one understood only Hindi, while the rest of the artistes are foreign nationals,” she says.
Banjaari will be released on YouTube by Bollywood singer Ramji Gulati on June 24.
