The music for ‘Purani Jeans’ was launched at a star studded event at at Hard rock Café, Mumbai on 16th April. An exclusive unplugged version of the song ‘Dil Aaj Kal’ sung by Sona Mohapatra was also unveiled.
Songstress Sona Mohapatra said, “I am in love with the Purani Jeans soundtrack which is an ode to the 90’s era of Desi pop-rock music. My version of ‘Dil Aaj Kal’ is especially close to my heart as it showcases my favourite flamenco guitar stylings & tells a story of Spring-Summer love with a dash of hormones!!”
Director Tanushri Chattrji Bassu, when asked to talk about her film, said, “It has been an absolutely wonderful journey and Ram Sampath has been a great companion. He has given us such lovely music and for a debut director to have this kind of music in a film is an absolute honour.”
Ram Sampath, music composer for ‘Purani Jeans’, “I am really excited about the film. I think, in many ways, that this is my journey back to melody, beautiful melodies…really romantic. You know, it’s what we grew up on.” He went on to thank Tanushri for this opportunity and for this wonderful film.
The lively Music Concert was hosted by Tanuj Virwani and Aditya Seal. Apart from Ram Sampath and Sona Mohapatra, the event witnessed the presence of talented artists like KK, Mika Singh and the cast of ‘Purani Jeans’, who also showcased their talents by singing a few of their favourite melodies.
