Vishal Dadlani and Sheykhar Ravjiani aka Vishal-Sheykhar are known for their epic soundtracks and hit songs. They always create a brilliant track to take the film up a notch and really bring the world of the film to life musically. Their newest project is the Siddharth Anand directed Pathaan.
The recently released first track from YRF’s Pathaan is the fabulous dance groove ‘Besharam Rang’. The song, which features Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone grooving to their beat, showcases the fan vocals by Shilpa Rao, Caralisa Monteiro, Vishal and Sheykhar has broken the internet! As of writing this article, the song has hit over 60 million views and counting.
Speaking about the instant success of the song Vishal Dadlani says, “‘Besharam Rang’ is a unique song. It is a confluence of genres that makes it very exciting musically. It is almost an old-sc,hool melody paired with a modern beat, that is influenced by Afrobeat but is electronic. What I love most is how a true melody transcends language, because while Shilpa is singing it, it sounds like a very traditional Indian melody, and Caralisa and I are singing a Spanish version of that melody, and it sounds authentic there too.”
He adds, “It’s an exciting crossover; we had a lot of fun making it. I think Siddharth wanted to raise the bar in terms of the woman, the protagonist singing the song being very sensual, and very empowered. It’s sexy and fun, and it’s a great groove that people are really going to enjoy dancing to it. A lot of heart has gone into it and I hope everyone enjoys it.”
Vishal and Sheykhar have had an epic association with Siddharth Anand having worked in films like War, Bang Bang, Salaam Namaste and composed hits like Khuda Jaane, Ghungroo and Hairat.
Sheykhar Ravjiani says, “‘Besharam Rang’s’ inspiration in all the old beautiful melodies we’ve grown up listening to, but infused with today’s vibe and sound. Siddharth and us go back a long way. The collaboration started with a foundation of a great friendship and understanding. It is one of those rare working relationships that is driven by a huge amount of passion, love for music and an ability to instantly grasp what we are collectively trying to achieve musically. The reason for the success of our combination lies in the joy of the process of making music and this joy is palpable when the audience hears the song.”
Pathaan is set to be a huge action packed spectacle for audiences. This action extravaganza, Pathaan, is part of Aditya Chopra’s ambitious spy universe and stars John Abraham opposite Shah Rukh Khan, and Deepika Padukone.
Are you ready? The adrenaline pumping, visually extravagant film is set to release on Jan 25, 2023 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
