Pritam shortlists 20 odd tunes for 'Race 2'
The soundtrack may not make or break a film’s fate at the box office, but it certainly can create a buzz around the project. No wonder that Pritam along with the makers of an upcoming thriller had to work hard at deciding what to finalise for the final cut.
Buzz is that Pritam had shortlisted 20 odd tunes but had a tough time selecting the final one. A source says, “The music director along with Abbas-Mustan and producer Kumar Taurani just didn’t know which one to pick.”
Creative producer of the film Jay Shewakramanai adds, “Pritam presented some tunes to us and we liked them too. However he said he was not entirely happy with them himself and kept rejecting them one by one. He wanted a theme that would become an instant party anthem.”
However, once the music director had got his right tune, he couldn’t contain his excitement. Jay says, “He called us at 1.30 in the night to announce he had found his favourite tune.”
Incidentally since the track features the entire cast of the film, choreographer Ahmad Khan had a tough time coordinating the shoot in Turkey.
