Sanjay Leela Bhansali is experiencing a different world while working with Akshay Kumar on ROWDY RATHORE. While it was evident that with director Prabhu Deva and Akshay Kumar on board, the film would hardly be the kind that Bhansali is associated with, it was also given that ROWDY RATHORE would be miles away from being artistic in nature.
"Think Bhansali and you end up remembering music from films like HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM, DEVDAS and SAAWARIYA. Each of these films has boasted of a classy element to them. Now for ROWDY RATHORE he isn't imposing his vision on the composers. He has given them a free hand as a result of which there won't be any hint of Bhansali touch to the songs," informs a source attached to the film.
SANJAY LEELA BHANSALI and AKSHAY KUMAR
First step in this direction was to rope in Sajid-Wajid, who has worked with Prabhu Deva on the music of WANTED. Music there was chartbuster and with Akki joining the gang, it was time to recreate some more jalwa.
Wajid nods in agreement here, "See, ROWDY RATHORE has a different look and feel to it and Bhansali is also aware about that. The kind of class and humor in it is completely different from what he has brought in his films so far. He is willing to experiment with the music here and knows that with all the masti we bring in our music, he can be rest assured of something really popular in hand."
A couple of chartbuster tracks can do wonders for the film's opening weekend and this is what Bhansali too wants for ROWDY RATHORE. No wonder Bhansali can be heard singing to his team - Bas Itni Si Tumse Guzaarish Hai......
