In 2015 SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali stunned everyone with his epic direction & story telling presentation & now the trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming magnum opus, ‘Padmavati‘, has been showered with praises from everywhere & We’ve got it’s Odisha connection & you’ll feel proud to know about it!
The man who has given us an extreme experience of sound & music in Bajirao Mastani, 3 Idiots, Piku & many other superhit movies; Odisha’s Nihar Ranjan Samal is the man behind Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ & Facebook, Twitter has been set on fire since the trailer arrived, which is having only 2 dialogues.
Nihar’s hometown is Jajpur.
An FTII alumnus Nihar has already won National Film Award for Best Audiography, Guild Award for Best Sound Design, IIFA Award for Best Sound Recording & now one of the most popular sound designers in the Hindi film industry.
While talking to TOI when he has been asked whether he would you consider working in Odia films? Nihar said that “For making a good film, the budget is a very important factor. Odia films have very limited funds and there are several other constraints. I worked in ‘Prema Rutu Asilare’ and if get a chance to work in a good film, I will definitely do it.”
Hope we’ll have him in our Ollywood again!
