Their western background notwithstanding, New-York based composer Wayne Sharpe and music editor Tim Starnes have come up with the perfect background score for Prakash Jha’s upcoming

Aarakshan

.



“We’ve taken the great Indian melody ‘

Vaishnav janato taine kahiye

…’ which goes well with the essence of Amitabh Bachchan’s character, Prabhakar Anand,” announced Jha on micro-blogging site, Twitter.



Dancing to their tunesSharpe, who has also composed for Jha’s earlier films,

Apharan

(2005),

Gangaajal

(2003) and

Raajneeti

(2010) was particularly efficient this time around. “On day one itself, we locked the main theme. Wayne was so inspired that he worked till 2 in the morning,” gushes Jha, who travelled to New York to work with the musician.



In the political thriller, set to release in the third quarter of the year, Bachchan will play the role of a professor. The film is set against the backdrop of caste reservation in India, and also features Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Prateik and Manoj Bajpayee.


Aarakshan

has been shot completely in Bhopal, in a start-to-finish schedule on real locations.
