Hindi film industry’s leading composer Pritam Chakraborty has two parameters while accepting a film – great scripts and close friendships. And he has been quite honest about the fact that he is happiest and has always delivered his best when he is working with his favorite directors.
And because he enjoys working with friends so much, this year ahead is a bonanza year for Pritam and his fans. Starting this “filmathon with friends” is the Dangal Director Nitesh Tiwari’s next Chhichhore. Speaking about working with Nitesh again Pritam says, “Working with Nitesh has been a joy. His films are not musicals but the stories and the treatment is so beautiful that the songs though situational stay with the audience.”
He is also working on Brahmastra with Ayaan Mukerji after the blockbuster musical Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, with Anurag Basu on his next and their collaborations in the past have included Jagga Jasoos, Life in a Metro, Gangster and Barfi!, with Imtiaz Ali’s Aajkal – Well who can forget the great music of Jab We Met and Love Aajkal. and finally with Kabir Khan on 83.
There are a couple of more friendly collaborations but he insists that we will need to wait for producer announcements for them. Now, that’s something to look forward to!
