Sony Music partners Balaji for 3 films
Sony Music Entertainment, a global music giant, on Monday announced a 3-film music deal with Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Motion Pictures.
The three films are Ek Thi Dayaan, Shootout At Wadala and Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi.
An entertaining supernatural thriller with an electrifying jolt at the end, Ek Thi Daayan marks the first ever association of two creative powerhouses - Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj.
Ek Thi Daayan carries the Vishal Bhardwaj stamp of music, with lyrics by Gulzar.
The first track, Yaaram , rendered by Clinton Cerejo and Sunidhi Chauhan, is already topping the charts.
Ek Thi Daayan stars Emraan Hashmi, Kalki Koechlin, Konkona Sensharma and Huma Qureshi, and releases worldwide on Apr 18.
The soundtrack of Shootout at Wadala promises to be the most elaborate album of the year in true Sanjay Gupta style - six tracks and four remixes.
An ensemble of music directors (Anu Malik, Anand Raaj Anand, Meet Bros Anjjan and Mustafa Zahid] have created a variety of tracks; dance and romantic.
The first track, Babli Badmaash, featuring Priyanka Chopra, was recently launched in a big way, and is yet another chart-topper.
The other tracks feature appearances by Kangana Ranaut, Sophie Choudry and Sunny Leone.
Shootout At Wadala also stars John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee, Tusshar, Ronit Roy and Mahesh Manjrekar, and releases worldwide on May 1.
Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi, a slice-of-life Delhi-based comedy, is a co-production with Bejoy Nambiar, featuring newcomers being launched by Balaji. It is slated for a September release.
Commenting on the association, Sanujeet Bhujabal, Marketing Director - Sony Music India, said, "We have worked with Balaji in the past and they have always given us hits. This is our first big association with them on three prestigious projects.
"We are thrilled to be working with the team again and are investing all our efforts to ensure that the music reaches out to music enthusiasts."
Tanuj Garg, CEO Balaji Motion Pictures, said, "The Sony Music team is very proactive, passionate and forward thinking, and have worked on some of the biggest Bollywood hits in recent times. We are glad to be associating with them on three important films."
