He proposed that a Dogri Music Industry must be promoted in Jammu so that like the Punjabi, Dogri also becomes popular not only in J&K but across the country and overseas through the Diaspora living abroad.
The song “Mande Hi Nai”‘, composed and sung by acclaimed singers Azad Sahab and Sunaina Patyal has been produced by Kiran Sagotra and directed by Azad Sahab. The main lead of the album is Azad Sahab and Sunaina Patyal and casting director is Shubham Khokhar, Makeup Artist is Sourav Khokhar, DOP is Tiny Productions.
The crew and the cast of the album briefed Bhalla about the production, stating that this will follow other productions in Dogri. They hoped that their production will be received well by the people and serve as an encouragement for the artists to work hard and make their mark in the field of art and culture.
Bhalla appreciated the directional effect and team work of the production, adding that beautiful lyrics, composition and music are enviable. He lauded and congratulated the team and also complimented their love for Dogri language.
