Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s upcoming biopic on ace athlete Milkha Singh is going to be a big get-together for the filmmaker and his music directors. Having worked with Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy individually on his previous films, the director roped in all three for his project on legendary athlete Milkha Singh.
In the past, it was AR Rahman who Mehra would go to for his film’s music. Then why this sudden change? The filmmaker states, “When I made my first audio-visual, Loy had composed music for it. And when I made my first ad, Ehsaan had given music for that.
And when Shankar made music for the first time, it was for one of my ad films. We have a 20-year old friendship that we treasure. It’s not that I have changed camps. People like AR Gulzaar saab, Prasoonji… they are like my soulmates. I can kill for them!”
