To launch the incredible music by Amit Trivedi for the upcoming film Lootera, the cast including stars Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh, director Vikramaditya Motwane, the singers including Amitabh Bhattacharya, who also wrote the lyrics to the beautiful pieces, Mohan Kanan, Shilpa Rao, Swanand Kirkire, Monali Thakur, and the composer himself put on a grand show!
Talking about the music of the film, Trivedi said, “It’s always the script and director that drive me to make good music. So all credit for Lootera‘s music goes to Vikramaditya. Vikram has always managed to churn out the best out of me.”
Adding, that the music is a tribute to the classic filmi songs we all love, “The music of this film is a tribute to Pancham Da (R D Burman) in terms of melody and orchestration.”
About the music Sonakshi Sinha said, “The music of Lootera carries as many emotions as the film does. Amit Trivedi you are a genius. Wonderful music launch”
About her role as Pakhi in the film, the actress said, “I felt that the role was written for me. I knew that this would be the most challenging film for me. My character goes through a lot of ups and downs and the best preparation was to talk to my director and understand the character,” she said.
About director Vikramaditya Motwane, she had nothing but praise, “he has done a fantastic job of directing the film and brought out the correct emotions.”
Adding, “We hope you all will love it. We have given it our best our labour of love and here’s presenting it to you Lootera.”
Ranveer apparently decided to join in the singing and did his own funny take on ‘Sawaar Loon’ as well as singing a bit of ‘Manmarziyan’!
Talking about his character Ranveer said, “It took me some time to get into the character. I had to work through it to get the kind of reserved character I had to be. It was even frustrating and on the fourth day I told Vikram that I was not the right choice. But Vikram worked with me through it and made me discover a new side to myself.”
