Celebrated folk singer Momtaz Begum has lent her voice to a song for director Aronno Anwar’s upcoming film ‘Ma’. The title of the song is yet to be disclosed.

Written by Mahi Flora and jointly composed by CloseUp1 star Mahadi and Muntasir Tusher, the song was recorded at a studio in the capital city on Wednesday. Muntasir Tusher has also directed music for the song.

Based on true events, the script of ‘Ma’ is written by director Aronno Anwar. The plot of the film revolves around the death of a baby boy and the mother’s agonies during the 1971 Liberation War.

Dhallywood actress Pori Moni is expected to join the shooting of ‘Ma’ in January 2022. It also has Azad Abul Kalam, Saju Khadem, Farzana Chobi, Rebena Karim Jui, Shilpi Sarker Apu, Shahadat Hossain and Labonno in various roles.

Aronno Anwar, who is mostly famed for directing TV productions, will mark his directorial debut on the silver screen with ‘Ma’. The film was shot in various locations of Gazipur in its first schedule earlier this month. It is jointly produced by Pulak Kanti Barua and Aronno Anwar.

As for Momtaz, the singer-turned-parliamentarian is scheduled to perform at an event in Jeddah of Saudi Arabia on December 24. Before that, she will perform at an event in Dubai on December 16 and another event in Sharjah on December 18, marking the 50 years of Bangladesh’s independence.

Earlier this year, Momtaz lent her voice for a song in Raihan Rafi directed film ‘Damal’ starring an ensemble cast that includes Siam Ahmed, Bidya Sinha Mim, Sariful Raz and Sumit Sengupta, which is yet to be released. Momtaz collaborated with Rasel Mahmud and Arafat Mohin Nidhi for the song.
