Sarkar Raj

has become the first feature film in India to release its background score.

Power of Sound

, the background score album has 32 tracks featuring various moods and situations from the film. Amar Mohile has composed the background score.

The film's director Ram Gopal Varma while addressing a press conference here last night said internationally, there are no song and dance routine like in India and thus background score for special event films like James Bond and Harry Potter series are released.

He said apart from the background score album, the film has a regular music CD containing 12 tracks.

The film's lead cast Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan released the background score album.

Talking to reporters, Big B spoke about how a background score was very important for a film but is often ignored. When the megastar heard a strange sound coming from the background music being played on stage when he came in, Bachchan quipped," the score reflects my mood for the evening. I have come here after penning a page of my blog only to see the broadband connection going away with my thoughts."

When Aishwarya was asked how was it to work with Abhishek when in the film they are not paired opposite each other. Abhishek asked, "Do you mean we lack chemistry?" To which the director Ram Gopal Varma said, " This is what happens after marriage."

The filmmaker refused to entertain questions whether Tanisha, the actress paired opposite Abhishek dies in the film to make Ash and Abhishek come together.

When a journalist commented to Amitabh Bachchan that if he keeps blogging, the newspersons will lose their job, the actor said: "you are most welcome to join me."

As part of the promotion of

Sarkar Raj

, a yatra is being planned across five cities from June 13 onwards. Ram Gopal Varma said the yatra was an exact replication of a scene from the film, where an entire cavalvade travels from one destination to another.

All the three Bachchans would participate in the road show. The film releases on June 6 and will be premiered at the IIFA weekend in Bangkok.
