Anjan Dutt to celebrate mysterious Mala’s birthday

Anjan Dutt, the celebrated musician from West Bengal, is set to grace Dhaka with his presence on the eve of Mala’s mysterious birthday. Despite depicting the enigmatic character of Mala in one of his emotive songs, “Mala,” which resonates with audiences across various walks of life, the identity of Mala remains shrouded in mystery till this day.

Anjan Dutt plans to reminisce about Mala and celebrate her birthday with devoted fans in Dhaka on May 11, a day ahead of what has become a solitary celebration on May 12. It’s noteworthy that fans in both Bangladesh and West Bengal observe Mala’s birthday on May 12, further adding to the enigma surrounding her identity.

Arclight Events, in collaboration with Assen and Zirconium, has announced Anjan Dutt’s concert titled “Anjan Dutt in Metropolis Vol 02” on their Facebook page. The concert, slated to take place at the Dhaka Arena in the Swadesh Shornali Abashon, Purbachal 300ft express road area, will feature Dutt along with the popular band Kaaktaal and musician Ahmed Hasan Sunny.

Tickets for the event are available in two categories, with regular tickets priced at Tk 1500 and VIP tickets at Tk 3500.

Speaking to the media, Dr. Imtiaz, co-founder of Arclight Events, expressed, “On May 11, Anjan Dutt will come to Dhaka to perform ahead of Mala’s birthday. May 12 is special for Anjan’s fans, as it marks Mala’s birthday. We will celebrate with Anjan after his concert by cutting the cake on Mala’s birthday.”

Anjan Dutt, who has previously revealed that the tune of the song “Mala” is inspired by Peter Sarstedt’s “Where Do You Go To My Lovely,” with the character named Mary, has reconstructed Mala based on the same melody.
