Actor-turned-director Prabhudheva was always very keen to work with music composer Pritam. Now, he has finally managed to get him on board for his third Hindi film, Namak, starring Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha. Producer Viki Rajani confirms, “We are very excited to have two maestros collaborating on the film for the first time. Pritam will be doing the music for this film after four consecutive hits, and Prabhudheva is the ultimate dancer. The audience can expect some great chart busters.”

Earlier, Prabhudheva had tried getting Pritam for his blockbusters, Wanted (2009) and Rowdy Rathore. Since those efforts went in vain, he was hell-bent on getting the composer on board this time.

Pritam is also very fond of Prabhu’s films, so this time he didn’t turn him down. “I am happy to work with Prabhudheva. I could not do this earlier two films due to time constraints. Also, Shahid and he will be a combination to look forward to. I am gearing up to produce some great Indian dance numbers to match the steps of this deadly duo,” he says.
