‘OMG 2’ has acquired constructive opinions from all sides…
I really feel ecstatic to be part of ‘OMG 2’. I’ve been a part of profitable movies earlier than, however to be a part of a profitable movie that has such an necessary message for the youth of at this time, for the residents of our nation, I feel may be very gratifying. So I’m simply very grateful and grateful for that.
Your tune, ‘Ho Tayyar’ has additionally been acquired nicely. How did the tune occur?
To start with, it is a aid that everybody has preferred the tune as a result of it was one thing very new that I had tried from my earlier work. So I used to be very relieved and eventually grateful that individuals beloved this tune a lot. The tune was chosen by the music supervisors Azeem Dayani and Megha Bali and these are the individuals who obtained in contact with me saying that there’s a scenario and we have to simply redo the tune in such a means that it matches the movie. And that is how I met the director, Amit Rai. Lyricist Gini Diwan and I noticed the footage of the movie after which we selected what’s one of the best ways to strategy the tune in order that it matches seamlessly within the movie.

Inform us one thing about making the tune.
‘Ho Tayyar’ is a really raag based mostly melody with people overtones and as I mentioned that that is the primary time that I ventured into this house, so it was extraordinarily difficult to get out of my consolation zone. However that is additionally very important for an artist. So the tune has these highs and lows, which is such an necessary line however it’s sung in a decrease octave, as a result of that there’s a sort of resolve that Pankaj Tripathi’s character has in that and we did not need it to be all excessive notes. It is only a stunning composition with excellent highs and lows and crescendos.
How was it working with the legendary Kailash Kher? Did he give his inputs to the tune or did he comply with your course of?
Kailash Kher is a dynamite when he takes over the microphone. He has such a strong voice and particularly for a tune like ‘Ho Tayyar’, which is an inspirational tune. I feel anyone who has heard his voice proper from ‘Allah ke bande’ will get impressed by his voice. He was extraordinarily gracious and humble. He adopted my instructions to the T and as soon as we recorded the tune the way in which I needed to, he gave his inputs with a caveat that if you wish to use it, you should use it and in case you do not wish to that is additionally okay.

The alaaps that he took and the variations that he did had been so recent and it simply lifted the complete tune from what it was. So he offers house to his composers and on the identical time, he’ll supply his artistic experience and it will be actually silly of me to not use his artistic inputs. He is such an incredible singer and composer.
‘Ho Tayyar’ is sort of a unique composition as in comparison with your earlier songs within the ‘Baaghi’ sequence. How did you put together for it?
This can be very totally different from my ‘Baaghi’ songs. My Baaghi songs had a really hip-hop really feel to them and a really electrical really feel. Whereas, ‘Ho Tayyar’ is totally Indian, raag-based, folkish melody and instrumentation. I understood the scenario of the movie and the world that the movie is about in. We needed to be very cautious with what devices we’re utilizing and the way we’re arranging it. And since I’ve learnt Indian classical, I used to be simply ready to point out this aspect of me as a composer. And at last, I’m glad that the viewers can see that as a composer, I can do totally different genres, together with Indian very nicely.
