After the chartbusting musical success of LOVE AAJ KAL and AGENT VINOD, Pritam Chakraborty makes his third consequential presence as lead composer in Saif Ali Khan's home production COCKTAIL. With 'Tumhi Ho Bandhu', 'Daru Desi', and 'Second Hand Jawani', this Pritam Chakraborty album is already a hit among the youth.
However, the music composer wishes to clear some misconception here. While Pritam is being credited for all the songs of the album, he maintains that the song 'Jugni', a Coke Studio creation, is not composed by him.
Says Pritam, ''I have not worked on COCKTAIL's 'Jugni'. I have no contribution in the version of 'Jugni'. It's like a background song which director Homi Adajania wanted. My contribution in that song is just suggesting a pattern of orchestration and suggesting Harshdeep Kaur when Misha Shafi was not available. Also, I think my most important suggestion was not to touch the song and keep it as it is like Rohail Hyatt and Arif Lohar had designed it for Coke Studio. Why play with a gem?''
