They might be western rock music and Indipop fiends, but their heart lies in the Bhojpuri land.
Budding engineers from IT-BHU have developed a website to promote Bhojpuri Cinema, www.bhojpuriacinema.com.
The research scholars from Computer Science, IT BHU, Akash Dutt Dubey and Shahnawaz Khan created the first ever website which clubs Bhojpuri Cinema, Art and its Culture on one, making the Bhojpuri land just a mouse click away.
"This website has been created to spread awareness about Bhojpuri language. This is the first ever Bhojpuriya site which will provide world level platform with bhojpuri cinema along with the local artistes of Varanasi," excited Akash Dutt Dubey claimed during the launch of 'www.bhojpuriacinema.com'.
Latest superstar of Bhojpuri film industry, Dinesh Lal Yadav aka 'Nirahua' launched the website on Monday.
Akash further said, "You can find Bhojpuri Songs, trailors and wall papers of Bhojpuri Films, Bhojpuri Samachar, games in Bhojpuri language, Bhojpuri Greetings, details about people from Bhojpuri speaking area and tons of other Bhojpuri related information."
Speaking on the occasion, Shahnawaz said, "Today Bhojpuri cinema is at par with Hindi cinema and it too is going global. Having a website for the film and its culture will be helpful for those who want to know more about the film. It will help to develop business too."
"We were working on this site from the first week of February and it became online on March 25. You can assume its popularity that with in two months the site has got more than one lakh hits which is an achievement for us," added Shahnawaz.
Emboldened by the over one lakh hits, the IT-BHU duo is planning to add the live concert of regional artiste of classical and semi classical music, like Soma Ghosh, Bageshwari Devi and others to the site.
"The journey doesn't stop here. We want to see our local artiste on Internet. People who love to listen chaiti, Kajri and other semi classic renditions can enjoy listening through our website. Apart from this, we want to prepare social networking site in Bhojpuri, which will be a new revolution," shared Akash.
