Only a couple of days remain for the release of I HATE LUV STORYS, Imran Khan's first romantic film after JAANE TU JAANE NAA. In between these two films he did a couple of action flicks like KIDNAP and LUCK where scope for music was minimal. However, I HATE LUV STORYS with music by Vishal-Shekhar means that Imran has a lot to sing and dance around.
On being asked about his favourite song from the film, this is what Imran had to say, "'Bin Tere' is the best song in the album. It is my favourite. Period."
Now that's a surprise considering the fact that there is a quintessential love song (Jab Mila Tu) and a young dance track (Title song - I Hate Luv Storys) in the album. What made him choose 'Bin Tere' which is a sad number?
"In fact because it is a sad song, I love it the most", says Imran, "In a romantic film like ours, you should feel the need ki arrey yaar, yeh dono lovers separate ho gaye hain, they should now come together. 'Bin Tere' conveys it so very well. I am a complete sucker for numbers like these and this is why I can't have enough of 'Bin Tere'. I keep listening to it more often than any other song."
Vishal & Shekhar carry similar sentiments as well when it comes to their compositions in the film. "Of course for us each song is special", says Shekhar, "It is good to see that in case of IHLS every single track is being appreciated like crazy. Normally when a soundtrack comes out, there are one or two favourite songs at maximum. However, here the response is phenomenal because not just the individual tracks but their different versions have been noticed and appreciated as well. For that, we want to thank all our listeners for making it such a beautiful overall experience."
