Kolkata: Anupam Roy had a dream and with Shoojit Sircar’s October, it has come true. “Like every other composer, I dreamt of collaborating with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. That he agreed to lend his voice to my composition, Tab bhi tu, is a big deal for me,” said Anupam. The composer had started discussing the film’s music with Shoojit many months back.
The director-composer created magic with Piku and when this film came about, Anupam wanted to give his best. “Unlike Piku, here I was provided with the lyrics first. So, when I was putting Tab bhi tu to tune, I thought of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The scratch was sent to him and he recorded the song in Pakistan,” Anupam elaborated.
The composer’s working for the first time with Varun Dhawan, but he is excited about it. So, what’s the best part about October? “Working with Shoojitda. He is a gem of a person and respects my music,” said the composer, who has his hopes pinned on the song, and also the film. Tab bhi tu was released a while back on YouTube.
