Bollywood Actress Pranutan Bahal offered tribute to her late grandmother, actor Nutan, by sharing a video of her dancing on the song Mora Gora Ang Laile from Nutan’s film Bandini (1963). Pranutan is seen in all-black salwar kameez, Pranutan performed elegant moves and added alongside the video, she wrote, “This is a really special one because it’s my dadi’s song.”
Speaking about imitating the track, sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Pranutan tells, “It was a wonderful experience, and I was very nervous because it is a classic song. We all know that it is performed by an absolute legend, which is my dad. This is one of my absolute favorite songs. I’ve been learning Bharatnatyam but I wanted to do Kathak for this song.”
Daughter of Mohnish Bahal, Pranutan acknowledges that she certainly was anxious about this whole performance as she knows that she was stepping into the shoes of a legend. “I didn’t get a lot of time to prepare for it so I was more nervous. But I just wanted to do this once and see how it will turn out,” she says further.
Pranutan made her Bollywood debut with Notebook in 2019, for which she received appreciation from the critics. However, she feels overwhelmed by the affection she has earned for her tribute to her grandmother. “I feel honored when audiences talk about my resemblance to dadi. She was one of a kind, and I enjoy her performances, with Bandini being my favorite. I am overwhelmed with all the love and beautiful responses that I have been getting on my performance. A big hug to all my fans,” she surmises.
