The song has been penned by National Film Award-winning lyricist Kabir Bakul and tuned and composed by Emon Chowdhury.

Anandamela will also feature a dance recital in memory of actress Sarah Begum Kabori, who died on April 17. The dance recital has been performed by actress Tareen Jahan synchronised with the song Se je keno elona, which was recorded by Sabina Yasmin for Razzak and Kabori-starrer film Rongbaz.

Besides, the programme will feature dance recitals by Apu Bishwas, Mehzabin Chowdhury, Ferdous, Purnima, song performed by Momtaz Begum and others.
