ANJAANA ANJAANI is the first ever film for composers Vishal and Shekhar where they are working with Sajid Nadiadwala. Though the producer has worked with the likes of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Anu Malik, Sajid-Wajid and Nadeem-Shravan in the past, coming together was Vishal-Shekhar was long due. While audience reactions to the music is still awaited as it would arrive on the stands only next month, Sajid has gone on record by not just tagging the soundtrack as the best ever to coming out of his banner but also the AASHIQUI of modern era.
He had said, "It's going to be an entirely different experience in case of ANJAANA ANJAANI. Vishal-Shekhar have touched a new high this time around. There are seven songs in the film and I can comfortably state that they have managed to do something which is on the lines of AASHIQUI. Music created by Nadeem-Sharavan for that film is considered cult today. I am sure ANJAANA ANJAANI too will find similar space for itself in years to come."
This is indeed a high for audience who are still humming songs from Vishal-Shekhar's current hit I HATE LUV STORYS.
"Well, thanks to Sajid for that", smiles Vishal, "All we know is that the soundtrack of ANJAANA ANJAANI has turned out to be magical. Every single song is something that we are very proud of. ANJAANA ANJAANI redefines the kind of music which we done before and only takes it forward. We wanted to do something mad and thankfully we have achieved that."
One can also expect the mutual comfort that director Siddharth Anand and the composer duo must have shared, courtesy their long association over last so many years. Also, this is their fourth romantic film in a row after SALAAM NAMASTE, TA RA RUM PUM and BACHNA AE HASEENO.
"Siddharth is a close friend of us and the genre doesn't matter. There is a lot of comfort that we share amongst us and that goes a long way in helping us come out with what eventually works best for the film", states Shekhar, "Even if it was a thriller, I am sure Siddharth and us would have worked together."
