Chandan Roy Chowdhury has made music video of the song recently.
While talking about the song Runa Laila said, “When I heard Begum Akhtar’s song Joshna korechhe aari in voice of Luipa, I was really impressed and wished her success. Then I selected Luipa to render my composed song Ei dekha shesh dekha. I had full confidence on her. Luipa has rendered the song rather than my expectation. I give thanks to Dhruba Guha of DMS for taking the overall initiative.”
From DMS it is informed that on the occasion of Runa Laila’s birthday, four songs are fixed to be released one after another. Luipa’s song is the first one.
