Pritam Focused On Music From LP Era, ’90s Romance

MUMBAI, (IANS) – Music director Pritam, who has composed the songs for the upcoming movie ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’, says the tracks are packed with music of the LP era and ’90s romance as briefed by the filmmaker himself.

The music of RRKPK is inspired by old classic romantic numbers. During a media interaction, Pritam was asked about the inspiration behind the film’s music.

“The brief was simple, Karan Johar wanted to revisit old classic Indian music. His brief was LP era ’90s genre… that sort of romance. The structuring of the songs changed. Every song has two ‘antaras’, and we cut one out, and they are about five to six-minute-long. If you see the whole movie, it is full of nostalgia, emotions, everybody is singing old songs and we have used them in the background.”

Pritam and Sonu Nigam have collaborated on the fourth song of the film, which will be out soon.

When asked about the fourth song, Pritam shared an interesting story.

“Just 2-3 days prior to this event, I composed the song with Sonu Nigam, but I had the song for some time. But the moment it was made clear that Sonu Nigam will be singing it, I thought I will change the song, and do a fresh number with him. There is little pressure when you compose a song with Sonu,” Pritam said.

“I kept dragging the process for 2-3 months until it was time to release the song, and when I saw all the songs in a row, it was working superbly with the film. Only then I called Sonu Nigam, while he was on a vacation in Mauritius,” he added.

‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’, which also stars veteran actors Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi, is slated for release on July 28.
