Pritam is extremely kicked about his composition for Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the film starring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor which will be directed by Kabir Khan. The music director can hardly wait to begin working on it.
“I’m doing Kabir Khan’s Phantom which doesn’t need many songs. When Kabir gave me Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘s script to read, I immediately wanted to be a part of the film,” says the music director, insisting this is one of Salman’s best scripts in a long time.
When pointed out that the film has already created a buzz as a film that promotes ‘love jihad’, a shocked Pritam said, “There is nothing communal about it, it’s a human story of a man and a child. Once they see it, no community will find anything objectionable in it. It’s not a typical Salman Khan film, yet only he can do justice to the script. Kabir and I are working on song situations and I’m sure we’ll come up with an interesting album.”
When further asked if there are any plans to get Salman to sing a song, having heard Khan’s ‘Jumme Ki Raat’, Pritam said, “Salman will sing for sure. The song we have has a RD Burman kind of energy and I’ve been urging him to record the track. I can’t wait to get him in front of the mic.”
