[RxPG] Kathmandu, April 29 - Bollywood playback singer Udit Narayan, who left his village home in southern Nepal almost three decades ago to carve out a flourishing career in neighbouring India, plans to return to his roots with a film in Nepali.

Udit Narayan Jha comes from Bhardah village in Saptari district in Nepal's Terai plains that have become the most trouble-prone region in the Himalayan nation currently.

Though Nepal is proud of the success of its boy in the mega-billion Indian entertainment industry and has often honoured him along with actress Manisha Koirala - another Nepali talent who made a name for herself in Bollywood -, the last visit to Nepal by Udit Narayan had ended in controversy.

His first wife Ranjana, who also comes from the plains, created a furore saying the singer had abandoned her and married again.

Udit Narayan first denied having married Ranjana but letter reportedly admitted in a letter written to a women's commission in Nepal that she indeed was his first wife.

However, now with the dust having settled down, Udit Narayan's film production company UD Movie Productions plans to shoot a film in Nepali from September.

The singer's second wife Deepa, who was in Kathmandu on a three-day visit to shoot music videos, told a local daily that the film will be directed by Anand D. Gahataraj while the music will be by Alok Shree, who is credited with bringing ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh's songs to the Nepali audience.

The shooting will start after a much-hyped Bhojpuri film made under the banner of UD Movie Productions, releases next month.

The film, 'Kab Kahava Tu I love You', stars Amar Upadhyay, known to watchers of Indian soap operas for playing Mihir in 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi'. However, it is better known for roping in Miss World 1999 Yukta Mookhey to perform in a song and dance sequence, known as item number, in Bollywood parlance.

The sequence has been heavily panned by the Indian media, even before the release of the film, as 'sleazy'.

Besides the new film, the Jhas also plan to launch in a big way their son Aditya, who has already acted and sung in Hindi films as a child artiste.

Aditya left Bollywood in 2001 after his voice started breaking. Later, he was sent for vocal training in a London school.

'You will be seeing him soon,' his mother told the Kathmandu Post daily.
