'My Name Is Jaan’ Returning Back On Staged On December 18


Earlier in September the red carpet premiere of this show was staged. Lotus Makeup Presnets 'My Name is Jaan' received raving reviews and compliments. This musical solo is the unique form of stage performance where Arpita Chatterjee alone performs for almost 2 hours - while singing, dancing, narrating and acting.

'My Name is Jaan' is an engrossing depiction of Gauhar Jaan, the first voice recorded in India and considered one of the most enigmatic legends in Indian music history.
 
The play is a first-person narrative with a feminist undertone. The 95 minutes show, separated by an interval, takes the audience back in time as if they are experiencing history.


Director Abanti Chakraborty has excelled in creating this magic through Arpita. She sings 9 songs - of various gharana and language live on stage. Her mellifluous voice and quality music composition of Joy Sakar keep the audience enthralled.

Addressing the media, Arpita Chatterjee said, "It is dedication, hard work and passion to captivate the audience while playing Gauhar Jaan. In the case of 'My Name Is Jaan', I realized singing rejuvenates me. It was sheer ecstasy to receive all the accolades and I am privileged to be back again.  As a woman, I completely relate to Gauhar! I never give up and no adversity has ever dampened my spirit. Kolkata is indeed the city where an artist always gets its due no matter what the circumstance is."

The director Abanti Chakraborty said, “Working on Gahar Jaan's biography was a dream come true for me. This is a very different endeavor for me than any of my previous works. Without Arpita, the entire crew, and the production assistance, 'My Name Is Jaan' would not have been achievable".
