Given the current relationship quotient shared between the two of them, Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan may find themselves on different ends of the spectrum today. However, the ones who are enjoying the best of both the worlds (and rightly so) are Vishal and Shekhar. The duo has composed for the most anticipated films of 2010 and 2011, ‘Tees Maar Khan’ and ‘Ra. One’ respectively. While the soundtrack of ‘Tees Maar Khan’ is already a hit, courtesy ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’, there is a lot to look forward to next year with ‘Ra. One’ promising to turn on the heat.
“We had to go the whole hog for ‘Ra. One’. It comes with huge expectations and required quite some effort to be spent on it”, says Vishal Dadlani, “Shah Rukh has been consistently supporting us for the music that we have made for the film.”
Adds Shekhar, “Shah Rukh wants the music to be really grand and cross boundaries. He along with director Anubhav Sinha had a certain vision and it was fun to execute it. Also, with someone like Akon singing for us, it all adds on to the international look, feel and appeal of the film.”
Also starring Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal, ‘Ra. One’ is expected to release on Diwali 2011.
