“I have known Akarsh for more than 4 years now. I met him through filmmaker Anurag Basu while we were working on Epic channel’s show “Stories of Rabindranath Tagore” and at that time Anurag da was also producing a short story for ‘MTV’ called ‘Real Fm’. That time Anurag da introduced me to Akarsh. Since then we have been associated in various projects . And this time as well I was happy to take up this project as I knew Akarsh will come up with something crazy. And so how the film is. But I had the best time scoring the background score for the film. It’s unusual like the film. I hope people will appreciate our effort.”
Anurag’s last release ‘Bas Ek Baar’ a love ballad for Times Music has already won Million Hearts.
