"We are giving music in one of Aamir Khan production. I can't disclose the name of the movie but we are doing it," Rahul Ram, vocalist and bass guitarist of the band told PTI on the sidelines of the Frog Fest 2009.
The band, which has a huge following among the youth with hits like 'Kandisa', 'Bhor' and 'Jhini', is also working in another Hindi film, which star Seema Biswas, Shahana Goswami and Pawan Malhotra of 'Black Friday'.
"We are also giving music to 'Bhoomi', a film shot by Aveek Mukhopadhya who had assisted Rituparno Ghosh as a cinematographer," Ram added.
The band, which was formed in 1990, has been hailed for creating a cross-cultural blend of music by mixing jazz-spiced sounds, rock, shlokas and sufism with environmentalism, mythology and revolution.
The group, however, owes its rise to stardom to the immense popularity that they enjoy in college students.
"Most of our money comes from shows and live performances. No mainstream is going to ask us but we are doing new songs," said Ram.
