The launch of the music from Sri Shankaracharya Arts Pvt Ltd’s film, Aalaap, was a star-studded one with live performances by Agnee (the band) and the actors of the film as well.
Producers Nishant Tripathi and Abhishek Mishra and co-producer Narendra Singh of Filmy Box played the perfect hosts while director Manish Manikpuri was beaming with happiness.

The story of Aalaap revolves around three directionless youngsters, Subhash (Pitobash), Prashant (Aabid Shamim) and Brijesh (Harsh Rajput, who share one common passion, music. They chance upon meeting Rahul (Amit Purohit), and the meeting brings them together. They realise that there are greater problems that need to be tackled in Chattisgarh that is infested by Naxalism. How music becomes their weapon to help bring love in a strife-torn Chattisgarh becomes the crux of the story.
Director Manish Manikpuri says, “Aalaap looks at winning over hatred by love, in stead of violence, to eliminate it. We would like the message to get across in the most entertaining manner.”
