In a day and age where party anthems, club tracks, item numbers or quintessential Bollywood numbers are a prerequisite for a good album in the film, trust filmmaker Prakash Jha to do something unique!

Music has always played a very important role in Jha's films however, this time instead of using a powerful background score, the National Award-winning filmmaker, who is known for making hard-hitting and relevant films on various social issues, has used earthy folk songs to take the screenplay of his film to the next level. Believe it or not, the film will have twelve songs composed by Salim-Sulaiman!

Talking about the film's music, Prakash Jha said, “You will be very surprised to know that my film has twelve songs. They have been composed by Salim-Sulaiman and all of them are very beautiful and earthy.”

Salim Merchant revealed, “Prakash ji told us that he wants to adorn each sequence, be it action or emotional, with a song. We were very surprised at his request and wondered how we will do it. Music has always been an integral part of Prakash ji's films but this time he wanted songs instead of a background score. It's a very new and interesting treatment.”

Sulaiman Merchant added, “It's always a unique experience to work with Prakash Jha because he always takes us to an experimental stage. Our film's music is very funky folk as we have presented popular folk songs in a very modern way and the end result is fantastic.'

Award-winning lyricist Manoj Muntashir, who is known for his work in blockbusters like BAHUBALI, PK and BABY to name a few, has penned the lyrics of the movie. Moreover, ‘Disco King' Bappi Lahiri has also lent his voice to one of the songs of the movie. The trailer of the film has received double thumbs up from both the audiences and the critics and one can hear the song ‘Uttar Bhaag Le' sung by Sukhwinder Singh in its background, which infuses a new life in all the scenes of the trailer.

Written and directed by Prakash Jha, produced by Prakash Jha Productions and Play Entertainment and co-produced by Milind Dabke, JAI GANGAAJAL revisits the dusty heartland of Central India and examines the society–police relationship. Starring Priyanka Chopra, the movie is all set to release on 4th March, 2016. JAI GANGAAJAL is not a prequel or a sequel to Ajay Devgn starrer GANGAAJAL but is a fresh story.
