'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' soundtrack to be grand, romantic: Pritam

He has composed several blockbuster romantic tracks and Bollywood music composer Pritam Chakraborty says the songs of his upcoming Karan Johar-directed “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” will have a grand feel.

The romantic-drama stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan.

“Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” is the first time when Pritam is composing music for a film directed by Johar.

The “Dilwale” hitmaker feels it is very easy to work with the producer-director as he is a very instinctive person who offers quick feedback.

“He is such an impromptu, instinctive person. It has been the easiest experience to work with him because he is so instinctive.

“He says ‘No’, ‘Yes’ on the spot. If he likes it or doesn’t like it he will tell why, and if he half likes it he will tell you, ‘I like this, can you change the other part’. So it’s very easy to work with people like him,” Pritam said in an interview here.

On soundtracks in Johar-directed films being a hit always, Pritam said, “This (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’s music) too would be grand and romantic for sure. I am really looking forward to a great collaboration with Karan Johar.”

This year, the 44-year-old composer will also reunite with filmmaker Anurag Basu for Ranbir Kapoor-Katrina Kaif starrer “Jagga Jasoos”.

There were reports that the film will have as many as 20 songs but Pritam said he is still unsure about the final count.

“Jagga Jasoos” will feature many tracks, making it the most difficult movie he has ever worked in.

“The number keeps on changing everyday, I also don’t know how many songs. But there are lots of songs. I think ‘Jagga Jasoos’ is the most difficult film I have ever worked in or I will be ever working in. The situations are devised as musicals and it is getting really difficult to crack.

“Because (generally) we do one love song, wedding song, sad song. In all the Hindi films, we are given briefs like ‘they are falling in love, painting the town’ but in Jagga Jasoos the brief is very complicated and layered.”

The composer-director duo has previously given hits like “Barfi!”, “Life in a Metro”, “Gangster” and Pritam said he is now used to Basu’s way of style which is very “challenging”.
