Karan Johar is moving away from his go to music directors Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy or Vishal-Shekhar in his upcoming movie ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ starring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.
On recommendation of the director Ayan Mukerji, Karan Johar has decided to sign Pritam Chakraborty to score the music for the film. This will be the first time that Pritam will be composing music for Dharma Production movie.
“Although Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy composed a good album for Ayan’s debut film ‘Wake Up Sid’, the young filmmaker was keen to work with Pritam this time around. He apparently wanted fresh tunes. Ayan spoke to Karan about his intention of roping in Pritam as the music director for ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’. Karan understood Ayan’s point of view and agreed immediately. Karan made this exception for Ayan since he loves the script and is very confident about the film,” said a source to a daily.
Karan Johar has confirmed the news and said that he is very excited to work with Pritam for the first time.
“This will be the first time Pritam will compose music for a Dharma film. We are very excited to have him on board. It will be interesting to see Ayan and Pritam connect musically,” said Karan Johar.
