After making an indelible impression as a wordsmith par excellence, The National Award and two-time Filmfare award winner Prasoon Joshi is adding one more feather to his cap. Known for his amazing words Prasoon will now be seen displaying his musical talent as well with Prakah Jha's AARAKSHAN.
Another quality project by Prasoon Joshi, this time for Prakash Jha's most anticipated film after RAAJNEETI - AARAKSHAN. Prasoon not only has written 4 evocative songs for this project, the music of which is by Shankar Ehsaan Loy, but for the very first time he's composed songs too with the support of ace singer and music director Shankar Mahadevan .
On this occasion Prasoon said, ''Kaun Si Dor' is a wonderful song. The thought was to center it on a philosophical level but in a common man's understanding. Often whilst writing a composition comes up in my head and whilst writing this song the composition just flowed through my mind. I bounced it off Prakashji and Shankar and they too loved it. Shankar was graceful enough to keep this as part of the album and am genuinely thankful. 'Kaun si Dor' comes at a poignant juncture in the film and am looking forward to the music of this film.'
Not many know that Prasoon is gifted in his lineage when it comes to music. Both his parents are classically trained and he has also had Ustad Hafiz Ahmed khan as his Hindustani classical vocal guru. In fact Prasoon often composes and sings many of his advertising jingles.
Commenting on his first work with Prakash Jha, Prasoon said,'Prakash Jha is an remarkable director, who does thoroughly researched films which are very unique, strong narrative, original plots across different genres, piloting fresh trails, and commercially viable. He always encourages fresh and unique ideas. It indeed was an wonderful experience to work with him'.
Apart from this being Prasoon's first composition finding place in the film he is equally excited that it has been sung by renowned classical vocalist Pandit. Chunnual Misra. Starring stupendous cast like Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Manoj Bajpai, Prateik Babbar and Deepika Padukone, AARAKSHAN is scheduled for release in August 2011.
