Looks like Chiranjeevi’s upcoming film God Father is getting a global makeover! The makers of the film are believed to have approached Salman Khan for a brief appearance in a song from the film. And the Bollywood superstar, who has had a long association with Chiranjeevi and his family, has obliged! So fans will get to see two legends shaking a leg together in the Mohan Raja directorial.
Talking about this exciting collaboration, the film’s composer S.S. Thaman says it’s a dream come true, to compose tunes for the two legends. “When Chiru Sir told me that Salman would be coming on board and would groove with him in a song, I was speechless! I was like ‘Wow! It can’t get any bigger’,” says a beaming Thaman, adding that it was Mohan Raja’s idea to get Salman on board.
“The whole team is on a high,” Thaman reports.
An exciting challenge!
“Generally, providing tunes for Chiru Sir’s films is itself tough, imagine what it’ll be like composing tunes for two legends,” Thaman says, but hastens to add, “I relish challenges and composing tunes for such stars is a sweet challenge.”
Composing tunes for two legends who have their own individual swag and aura, is challenging but exciting too, he reiterates.
The composer feels that the magnanimity of two heroes is such that there’s no pressure on him to deliver. “Also, it’s a great chance for me to expand my music beyond the State. Hindi composers too know that I come up with interesting tunes,” he says, adding that he needs to live up to those standards.
Tunes are brewing in his mind, the composer shares, and reveals that the work has already begun.
An integral part of the film
Thaman clarifies that the song isn’t force-fitted into the movie. He of the opinion that the theme of a song should blend naturally with the film’s content. “And as such, we are not getting carried away about the two big stars coming together. We are only trying to find out how we can simplify the song and reach out to a larger and wider audience,” says Thaman. Since it’s a pan-India film, fans of both the stars will be in for a treat,” he promises.
The composer, however, refuses to reveal the genre of the song. “All I can tell you is that it will be an engrossing and thematic number, a song that has great vibe and spunk. Composing tunes for such an ensemble cast is a great responsibility. So we are working to come up with a foot-tapping number,”
“Although I composed tunes for the film Bruce Lee, in which Chiru Sir did a cameo, it’s almost 120 films later that I am getting to compose music for a solo Chiru film. It’s been a long wait, but I am glad I got the opportunity,” says the composer....
