Bollywood actors gunning for Hollywood isn’t unheard of but now even our music makers are going west. The Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio is all set to make its Hollywood debut with the much-talked about movie Marigold. The movie will be the first ever Indo-US co-production in the backdrop of Bollywood, starring the resident hottie Salman Khan and other Indians.
“A lot of musical exchange is happening between India and the West and that’s good,” says Loy Mendonsa of the trio. He adds that working with director Williard Carroll was a good experience. “He makes his point and backs off. He loved the soundtrack of Dil Chahta Hai and even gifted his friends some of our music.”
The songs of Marigold are in English and Hindi with lyrics by Javed Akhtar and Shari Watson and sung by Shaan and Shankar Mahadevan. “The core of our music is still Indian,” adds Loy.
The trio has wrapped up Don and will begin work for Shaad Ali’s Jhoom Barabar as also Anil Kapoor’s forthcoming production. Good going guys!
