‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’s title track has touched the right chords of our hearts. The song is composed by Pritam, and recently, the music composer revealed that he had kept two options for the title track of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. While one has been used in the film, other was used in Salman Khan starrer ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. The other track which was later used in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ was ‘Tu Jo Mila’.
Pritam told a news agency, “I had composed two options for the title track. One is the same title track ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’, as you hear it now. Since the choice was made, the other track I used it in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. So, if you take ‘Kyunki tu dhadkan main dil’ you can easily put it as ‘Kyunki ae dil hai mushkil’. So, I had composed that song as an option for ‘Ae Dil…’.”
“Later, when this came in (‘ADHM’ title track), that song became ‘Tu Jo Mila’ and it was going immensely well in ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’,” he added
It is said that Ranbir Kapoor plays a singer in the film. When Pritam was asked if Ranbir has sung any song in the film, he said, “Ranbir will not be singing a song for the sound track. Nothing like that is decided. He is such a good actor that when he performs, it looks like he is singing the song.”
Talking about Ranbir, Pritam further stated, “I think Ranbir is simply exceptional in the song (‘ADHM’). The entire first ‘mukhda’ of the song is just held on his eyes. He is singing and the entire expression, the mood of the song is perfectly reflected through his eyes.”
“I messaged Ranbir multiple times saying that in my life I haven’t worked with an actor like him and that his talent is unparalleled. It is really brilliant for an actor to be able to hold a song for nearly 45 seconds, carry forward a full mukhda in one shot and express the entire emotion just through the eyes,” the music composer added.
Pritam revealed that there will be seven songs in the album which will be out by September end. The songs are a “mixed bag of intense, romantic songs and fun songs.”
