Things had gone sharp between Vishal-Shekhar and Shah Rukh Khan in the past over specific episode. Songs created by musician duo Vishal-Shekhar have been a steady apparatus in Shah Rukh Khan’s last few movies including Happy New Year (2014), Chennai Express (2013) and Ra.One (2011). However, things look set to change now.
In the event that sources are to be accepted, Pritam has been reserved into score the music for Shah Rukh Khan’s next with Rohit Shetty. A source says, “An announcement will be made only when the film rolls next month, but Pritam is definitely scoring the music. Things had gone sour between Vishal-Shekhar and Shah Rukh in the past over certain incidents, which may have led the makers to collaborate with Pritam.”
A year ago, Vishal-Shekhar were absent from SRK’s Slam! – The Tour in Canada and USA to promote Happy New Year. Anyway Yo Honey Singh, reputed to be King Khan’s top pick, was tackled board however he doesn’t have anything to do with the project.
It is remarkable in B-Town that Honey and Vishal-Shekhar offer a sharp past. The duo were upset when roped in Yo Yo to sing the Lungi Dance track for Chennai Express. Around then, Vishal had dispatched a verbal tirade against the vocalist rapper on the web. The irked composers also skipped an episode of a music reality show that they were judging when Shah Rukh Khan came on the show for promoting his movie Chennai Express.
Buzz was that SRK and Rohit Shetty had kept Vishal-Shekhar oblivious about the ‘Lungi dance’ number despite the fact that they were the film’s authors. Includes the source, “Due to past incidents, it appears that for their next project, they made a conscious decision to work with Pritam.” Pritam remained unavailable for comment. The makers, too, were tightlipped about the music composers.
