With the music of his film Aksar proving to be a chartbuster, particularly the Jhalak dikhlaja number, director Ananth Mahadevan is on Cloud 9.

"It is the hottest selling musical score in the market today. We knew from the outset that the music had a novel feel to it because we had worked on a new soundtrack but we never expected this kind of an unprecedented response," says Mahadevan.

He says both he and music director Himesh Reshammiya wanted to make the soundtrack of the film its high point, reports Bollywood Trade.

"The film is a slick and glossy suspense thriller and we did not want the soundtrack to impede the storyline which is what happens with most suspense thrillers today. Moreover, we were looking at a pulsating new soundtrack for the film, one that would keep the suspense element alive and go with its racy story-line," he says.

He is confident the musical success of the film will now translate into its box-office success.
