They say a disorganised person is full of thoughts and ideas. The adage seems to apply to music composer, Pritam

Lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya who collaborated with him for Ayan Mukherjee’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani tells CS, “Pritam does not believe in schedules or following a system.

He is composing, re-composing and changing tunes at the last minute. Working with him is a huge challenge for a lyricist as you have to rewrite your lines time and again to suit his notes.

And this does not happen for a single song, it’s consistent throughout an album! However, once you get used to his working style, life’s much easier (laughs).”
