Whenever a Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film is announced, it is obvious to hit the headlines due to some or the other reason. Now, the reason Sanjay Leela Bhansali is making it to the headlines is his new signed deal with India’s one of the largest and oldest music label –Saregama.
Sanjay Leela Bhansal and Saregama have signed a deal for three upcoming projects of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Out of which first one would be Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’- the music right of which have been attained by Pen Studios.
The second one is Bhansali’s untitled directorial and first non-film Hindi originals album the music of which is composed by him.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali told about this collaboration, “Many a childhood memory of mine is of listening to the golden classics of Hindi cinema that the Saregama library holds and imagining my own world of stories around it. These songs and the music have been an essential part in my formative years.”
He further added, “What an absolute delightful moment it is for me then that the music of three of my most zealous projects in the near future will add to this rich legacy of Saregama. This is a special collaboration for me, and one which is personal.”
About the collaboration Vikram Mehra, Managing Director, Saregama India said, “There is history that breathes in the golden libraries of Saregama. And we believe history is about to be made again with our partnership with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. In today’s modern times of Hindi cinema, few raconteurs have come close to the consistent brilliance that he has shown in his movies and the music that he composes.”
“His music sense is unparalleled – it imparts his stories a narrative purpose and the songs stand on their own as that which transcend the immediate to find a more permanent place in our hearts. Saregama has preserved the work of some of the biggest talent from our music and film industry, and what an apt addition this will be. I can’t wait for us to bring the music of three of Bhansali’s projects to audiences. It’s going to be special, for sure” said Vikram for signing 3-deal projects with Bhansali.
On the movie front, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s forthcoming ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’s trailer managed to garner much love and appreciation with Alia Bhatt’s whole new avatar.
