After working with first-time directors and announcing new actors for his banner, Bollywood’s ace filmmaker Karan Johar has signed Marathi composing brothers Ajay and Atul Gogavale to do the music for his new-age remake of Agneepath.
Ajay and Atul shot to fame with their Marathi
compositions Natrang and the sound captured for Agneepath, to be produced under Dharma Productions banner, is expected to be very different from what we normally hear in the films today. “We wanted a sound that resonated with what the composing maestros Laxmikant-Pyarelal had done in my father’s production of Agneepath. With due respect to the composers of today, I don’t think anyone else could have composed the sound we wanted,” said Karan.
It was Riteish Deshmukh who introduced Karan to Atul-Ajay. “I loved Atul-Ajay’s music in Natrang. The minute my Agneepath director Karan Malhotra and I heard their music, we knew this is what we were looking for. Atul and Ajay will do to this new movie what Laxmikant-Pyarelal did to my father’s film. The music has the same epic quality with huge orchestral sounds,” said Karan. This is for the first time that Karan is working with a new team of composers. It’s part of his plan to rejuvenate the film industry with new talent.
Some of the songs for the new Agneepath have already been finalised.
