Sohail Sen: Ali wanted GUNDAY music to be contemporary & not outdated

The recently launched music of Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra starrer GUNDAY, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, is creating a stir; thanks to the efforts of the music director Sohail Sen. In a small tete-a-tete, Sohail shares his experience about working on the film.
GUNDAY is Sohail's second association with Ali, the first one being MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN. So ask Sohail about teaming up with Ali again and he reveals, ''Since I had worked with Ali before, there was this comfort level between us. And as soon as I finished EK THA TIGER, he came to me with GUNDAY script and took me on board. I loved the script from day one and so I started working on it immediately. Ali, Irshad (Kamil) and I began with the lyrics session first.''
So why did GUNDAY music take one and a half year to be ready? ''Ali was very clear that if we are making the music of the film we should approach something as per present day taste as well as lookout for 70s time, since the film is based in that era. But at the same time the music should not be outdated. So sound wise we had to keep it contemporary, while composition had to be rooted. If you observe carefully then all the songs of GUNDAY have certain Indianness to it. And that took time,'' Sohail explains.
GUNDAY, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar and produced by Yash Raj Films, is a film set up in Kolkata and depicts the post-war era of 1971 and its later consequences, scheduled to release on February 14, 2014.
