Salman Khan is on a role from acting to singing! And many directors are ready to put him in the recording booth! Pritam is extremely kicked about his composition for BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN, the film starring Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor will be directed by Kabir Khan and the music director can hardly wait to begin working on it.
“I’m doing Kabir Khan’s Phantom which doesn’t need many songs. When Kabir gave me Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s script to read and I immediately wanted to be a part of the film,”
says the music director, insisting this is one of Salman’s best scripts in a long time.
When pointed out that the film has already created a buzz as a film that promotes ‘love jihad’, a shocked Pritam said,
“There is nothing communal about it, it’s a human story of a man and a child. Once they see it, no community will find anything objectionable in it. It’s not a typical Salman Khan film, yet only he can do justice to the script. Kabir and I are working on song situations and I’m sure we’ll come up with an interesting album.”
When further asked if there are any plans to get Salman to sing a song, having heard Khan’s ‘Jumme ki raat’, Pritam said,
“Salman will sing for sure. The song we have has a RD Burman kind of energy and I’ve been urging him to record the track. I can’t wait to get him in front of the mic.”
Nor can we! Are you ready to hear more of Salman on the mic!
