The first magical number from 1940, Nagri Nagri from forthcoming biopic #Manto is here and this song is one nostalgic ride!
Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui shared the song on his social media profile. He captioned it, “The magic of the 1940’s...#NagriNagri @snekhanwalkar @mantofilm @ZeeMusicCompany @HPIndia @Viacom18Movies #FilmStoc @nanditadas @RasikaDugal @TahirRajBhasin @gurdasmaan @MagicIfFilms.”
The magical and rustic number is crooned by maestro Shankar Mahadevan and composed by Sneha Khanwalkar. The song is a journey, which gives a little sneak peek into the life of Manto, who once lived in Mumbai. His struggle to find work and dealing with life is inspiring and heart-breaking as well!
