Pritam to compose music for Dharma's 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'

It seems like Karan Johar has drifted away from the usual norm and opted for a different musical choice for Dharma camps forthcoming film ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’.

Sources reveal: “Although Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have composed a good album for Ayan’s debut film ‘Wake Up Sid’, the young filmmaker was keen to work with Pritam this time around. He apparently wanted fresh tunes. Ayan spoke to Karan about his intention of roping in Pritam as the music director for ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’. Karan understood Ayan’s point of view and agreed immediately. Karan made this exception for Ayan since he loves the script and is ver y confident about the film.

Karan Johar confirmed this and added: “This will be the first time Pritam will compose music for a Dharma film. We are very excited to have him on board. It will be interesting to see Ayan and Pritam connect musically.”

The film will incidentally also bring together the successful duo of director Ayan Mukherjee and actor Ranbir Kapoor who will be teaming up for the second time after the success of ‘Wake Up Sid’.
