Mumbai: The talented music trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is once again, winning the audience with their new patriotic song Ae Watan from the upcoming espionage thriller Raazi. Starring Alia Bhatt in the lead role, this song tugs the patriotic heart of every Indian.
During one of the media interactions at the release of the songs, one-third of the musical trio, Eshaan Noorani sounded confident about the success of the song and said the simplicity and emotions of the song will connect with any generation. When asked if the Bollywood's leading music trio paid any special attention to today's choice of music while composing Ae Watan, Ehsaan said, "I think a simple idea works very well. It would definitely appeal to everybody. There are no set parameters to compose songs. I mean we have done songs that have been appreciated before like Laskhya and Hindustani. This song is emotional and it would connect with any generation."
Ask them to explain their process of work, Ehsaan has a ready reply. "Working on a patriotic song is very tricky. It shouldn't sound like something that has been done before and especially in a situation in the film, we needed a patriotic song. It had to be an emotional song because the story demanded so," he said. Ehsaan said the album comprises songs which play more on the emotional factors. " It's important to play with emotions because she is crossing the border to spy for India and probably putting her entire life at risk," said Ehsaan. The composer trio has also experimented with Kashmiri folk music for the Alia Bhatt-starrer spy thriller film.
After Rock On 2 and Mirzya in 2016, the trio is excited for their forthcoming project Raazi, which is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka's Calling Sehmat, a novel inspired by the almost-unbelievable real-life story of the woman named Sehmat, to protect her identity. Alia Bhatt will be seen playing Sehmat, whereas Vicky Kaushal is essaying the role of a Pakistani officer. Directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by Karan Johar and Vineet Jain, Raazi will hit screens on May 11.
