Still basking in the glory of the super success of OM SHANTI OM, composer duo Vishal-Shekhar would be creating a hat trick in first quarter of 2008. They would be having as many as three of their soundtracks releasing one after another though it has to be seen in which order do they arrive. While TASHAN has a confirmed release plan for 25th April and hence the album is expected to arrive late March, Vishal-Shekhar would also be heard in DE TAALI and BHOOTNATH.
While the music for both the films is ready for quite some time, as per sources even the two films are ready for release and it's a matter of time before the release plans for the same is announced. DE TAALI is a film by E Niwas who is currently gearing up for the release of MY NAME IS ANTHONY GONSALVES. DE TAALI stars a young cast comprising of Aftab Shivdasani, Ritesh Deshmukh, Ayesha Takia and Rimi Sen.
Meanwhile BHOOTNATH is a Ravi Chopra production which has newcomer Vivek Sharma at the helm of direction. The film stars Amitabh Bachchan along with Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla.
Inarguably, TASHAN is the biggest release of Vishal-Shekhar since not just it is a Yash Raj Films' production, it also has a true-blue masala star cast comprising of Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Directed by debutant Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film is special for YRF since it comes in the wake of duds like LAAGA CHUNARI MEIN DAAG and AAJA NACHLE.
With Vishal-Shekhar enjoying a successful 2007 due to successful soundtracks like OM SHANTI OM, CASH, HONEYMOON TRAVELS PVT. LTD. and TA RA RUM PUM, one expects 2008 to spell great for them as well!
