Playback singer Kanak Chapa has come forward to save water lily, the national flower of Bangladesh, which is fast disappearing from the country due to loss of habitat.
The singer, also known as a painter and poet, joined a campaign titled ‘save the national flower water lily’, on May 26.
Kanak Chapa, along with others, spread water lily seeds at capital’s Ramna Park Lake and also distributed the seeds among people at a programme, which was jointly organised by Sabuj Banchai Sabuje Sajai, Amader Khelaghar School and Youth Union for Sunstainable Human Activities at Ramna Park.
‘I will like to thank the organisers for taking the initiative to save our national flower. I have always supported environmental movements and as an artist I feel honoured to participate at the event,’ Kanak Chapa told New Age.
Speaking about her recent projects Kanak Chapa said she is regularly writing poems and also preparing for her next exhibition.
When asked whether she will be doing playback singing in any recent films, Kanak Chapa, the three time winner of National Film Award, replied,‘ There are not many scopes of doing playback singing in the films these days as the number of new films has decreased in the recent years.’
