Would love to collaborate with the Khans: Amit Trivedi
Mumbai : Music composer Amit Trivedi says he would be happy to collaborate with the Bollywood’s Khan trio – Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir – for a song.
The “Shaandaar” hitmaker, who has composed the title track of megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s upcoming TV show “Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi”, wants to team up with the Khans if a “unique” song comes his way.
“I would love to collaborate with all the three Khans. Who wouldn’t? But the song has to be something unique, something different. Otherwise what’s the point. Working with Bachchan sahab and the three of them, won’t get bigger than this,” Trivedi told PTI.
Continuing the trend of actors crooning their songs, the 73-year-old “Piku” actor has lent his voice to the track of his upcoming show.
Recently, Salman sang the title song of his home production “Hero”.
Trivedi, however, is completely fine with actors going behind the microphone, as he feels the song ends up looking more natural on-screen.
“I think it’s great. Singing your own songs looks more natural and organic. There is nothing fake about it. You say the dialogues, you sing the songs too. Audience doesn’t find that odd. It looks and sounds convincing,” he said.
While the composer is fine with actors singing their songs, Trivedi, who has given hits like “Dev D”, “Lootera” and “Queen”, does not understand the need for multiple versions of the same song in an album.
“I don’t know why people do that. I don’t see the need of having multiple versions of the same track with different singers. I never do that. But I guess everyone has a different way of working so they choose this style,” he said.
Trivedi’s next project is “Kai Po Che” director Abhishek Kapoor’s romantic-drama “Fitoor”.
The film stars Katrina Kaif, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Tabu, Adii Rao Hydari among others.
“Fitoor’s music is turning out fantastic. It is a very different film and so is the soundtrack. We worked hard for almost a year for the album,” the musician said.
“Abhishek Kapoor has a different style of movie making. I hope when the album is out people will love it. I hope it gets its due,” he added.
