Krish Joshi's upcoming film Parapancha is, of late, in news almost every other day! Initially it was for Ragini's item song and now it is for Ananth Nag's shayaris. The uniqueness is that the actor has sung many shayaris in the movie.

Sources say that the actor plays the role of a man suffering from amnesia, who frequently visits the bar, where the protagonist of the flick Diganth works at. The shayaris which Mr. Anath Nag sings is said to be about him comparing his life to a bar itself. The shayaris trace the journey of a naalkane (25 paise) becoming a rupee in terms of fulfiling life's purpose.

Ananth Nag, who suffers from amnesia, visits a bar called 'Parapancha' every day and the staff has to introduce themselves daily. His character somehow copes with this repetitive situation day after day.

Apparently, the actor has rendered 11 shayaris for the film and the shayaris have been penned by director of the film Krish Joshi. It is aid that in the entire film Anant Nag's character speaks in the form of shayari, which is very unique!

It is also said that the shayaris have been inspired by Harivansh Rai Bachan's Madhubaala. When the director was asked why Anath Nag was chosen,the director said: "The character is shown speaking in this musical-lyrical manner. So it was necessary to carry that voice into the shayari itself. Adding someone else's voice to the shayari in the middle of someone speaking would have looked odd. So we went ahead."

Parapancha, starring Diganth and Ragini Dwivedi in the lead roles, also has Anath Nag essaying an important role.
