Composers Sachin-Jigar take inspiration from RD Burman for Gold song
Inspired by RD Burman, Sachin-Jigar use bottles to compose Chad Gayi Hai in Akshay Kumar's Gold
Unveiled yesterday, the latest track of Reema Kagti's Gold sees leading man Akshay Kumar in an inebriated state, entertaining a bunch of foreign dignitaries. To add an element of peppiness to Chad Gayi Hai, music composer duo Sachin-Jigar reveal that they played with an array of glasses and glass bottles for the creation of the beats. While the use of props to make music is common, Jigar Saraiya says it was RD Burman's Chura Liya (Yaadon Ki Baaraat, 1973) that served as their inspiration.
"He had used a glass [to create music in] the song. In fact, he often used real elements to make his beats. Since the song was about getting intoxicated, we decided to use liquor bottles to add a distinct effect." Interestingly, the duo didn't settle for a limited number of bottles, but requested for as many as 100 to create sounds of different frequencies. "The bottles and cans were from different brands, which helped us procure the right sound. We also imported a few. Eventually, only a limited number was used for the final song."
Rendered by Vishal Dadlani, the track has been arranged by Zakir Hussain's brother, Taufiq Qureshi and took 20 days to be crafted. Sachin Sangvi says, "We have been working on the film for over 18 months and this song was a last-minute addition. We created four versions before zeroing in on this final cut. We wanted a modern sound that didn't deceive the era that the film is based in." Director Kagti, he says, was particular to note that Dadlani sang in Bengali accent, in accordance with the character.
