Legendary Kathak exponent Pandit Birju Maharaj, who had obliged to guide and advice creatively in the Tandav dance, based on the never-ending journey of a Devdasi, picturised a song on the leading lady Nargis, on Monday, 21st January, at the historic Madh Fort near Mumbai for Harward Entertainments' "Pranali – The Tradition".

Earlier a disciple of panditji was specially flew down to Mumbai to train the leading lady Nargis, followed by Panditji himself, who personally taught the nuances of Kathak to Nargis.

"Pranali – The Tradition" is the story of a girl born in a small village on the border of Karnataka & Maharashtra, a girl whose childhood is yet untouched and full of pure innocence but she still falls prey to one of the unconventional and downtrodden systems of our society; a stigma of being a "Devdasi".
