There are numerous videos on YouTube. Some just exist, while others become favourites. One such new song, which has mesmerized listeners from two weeks, is an Odia number called Prema Hei Gala Janili, starring actress Sivani Sangita from Odisha.
Its video has become instantly famous with music fans, receiving a fantastic response just in a few days of its release. “The way the song has become popular, it’s quite thrilling,” quips a cheerful Sivani, who has herself sung the number in a very melodious voice.
Inspite of being fairly new to singing, she has even managed the high pitch portions pretty well. The song also has a very soothing and haunting melody which rings in the ears long after the listener has heard it.
Released by Amara Muzik, with lyrics, composition and some vocals by Prem Anand, the video is directed by Girish Mohanty and produced by Naveen Bhandari.
Having worked as a child artist in various Indian daily soaps and movies, Sivani got her major breakthrough in Sister Sridevi co-starring Babushan in 2017. Her recent films Prem Kumar: Salesman of the Year, Babu Bhaijan have been quite the talk-of-the-town, while her upcoming movies Bidyaran and Dil Mora Manena are much-awaited.
Sivani actually started working in the Odia entertainment industry at the age of six, her biggest support being her maternal grandmother. It was her grandmother’s dream to see her as a successful artist and she was quite determined to fulfill that dream.
The actress is also a professional dancer, trained in Western and Odissi from Odisha Dance Academy, having trained under Padma Shri Aruna Mohanty. While her shoots were halted during the pandemic, she also used the opportunity to take music lessons.
She has a dreamy sparkle in her eyes and a likeable charming demeanor. Add to that a radiant smile and a bubbly sparkling persona. That combined with a glowing beauty and subtle grace, Sivani Sangita makes quite a stunning expressive versatile package for the Indian entertainment industry.
We wouldn’t be surprised if one soon finds her getting offers from Bollywood too.
