Rhea didn’t curb my freedom in ‘Aisha’: Amit Trivedi

Amit Trivedi, the music composer for “Aisha”, says neither producer Rhea Kapoor nor director Rajshree Ojha curbed his creative freedom even though they were involved minutely with the soundtrack.

“Rhea and Rajshree were involved in every detail of the soundtrack. They used to give their inputs, but that didn’t curb my creative freedom,” Trivedi said.

“Aisha” stars Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol in the lead. It is an adaptation of the British novel Emma by Jane Austen and Sonam plays the main protagonist of a matchmaker. The film is slated for release Aug 6.

While Trivedi has composed the soundtrack, Javed Akhtar has penned the lyrics for the album. Rhea and Sonam are the daughters of actor-filmmaker Anil Kapoor.

Trivedi, who got into limelight after creating a remarkable soundtrack for “Dev D”, says the new film’s music is very different.

” ‘Aisha’ has a very young, bubbly and vivacious kind of music. Since the film is a romantic comedy, the music is very different from my previous film,” he said.

Moreover, the 31-year-old goes on to give the credit to the two women behind the film.

“To be honest, this album totally belongs to Rhea and Rajshree. They have brought this kind of music out of me. I have never done anything like this before; so they really helped me with it,” said Trivedi.

The film has six tracks and Trivedi has used both Indian and Western instruments for the songs.

While talking about the compositions, Trivedi reveals that the title track of the film was the most difficult to create.

” ‘Suno Aisha’ was the most difficult track to compose. It involved lots of arguments. Many tunes got bombed during this process. Some Rajshree used to like, some Rhea used to like and some I wasn’t too comfortable with.

“Then looking for the right singer for the song was also a task,” he said.

As far as his future projects are concerned, Trivedi is looking forward to “Udaan” and a children’s film, “Chillar Party”.

When quizzed about whom he considers competition in the industry, the composer said: “I love everyone’s job, I don’t consider anyone competition.

I have learn’t so much from all the composers who are making music nowadays.

A.R. Rahman is my idol.”
