Farah’s Husband Shirish Turned to Composer


Does anyone hear that Shirish Kunder, husband of Farah Khan has now turned to composer and lyricist? Shirish who started his career as writer, and after that a producer, and now his latest reinvention to see himself as a music composer and lyricist.

Shirish Kunder has composed the flick’s theme song and title track of the flick. Interesting part is that crooner, Sonu Nigam has sung the title track in 40 different voices. A source says,

“There are male and female voices and many chorus singers and each voice belongs to Sonu. After the song was sung it was layered but no special effects were added. We recorded from 10 pm to 4 am and he recorded the song in six hours flat! Shirish wanted to take a break Sonu refused saying, ‘toh phir bhoot utar jayega!’ “

“The title track was the first song they recorded. Farah and Akshay Kumar loved the song. When T-Series owner Bhushan Kumar heard it (he wasn’t told who had scored the music), he loved it so much that he wanted Shirish’s song to kick off the promotional music video campaign on October 15.”

Talking about his new avatar, Shirish says,

“I sat in on the arrangements and decided on each and every instrument to be played. I chose to compose this song as it’s the most challenging of all the tracks. It tells you about all the characters. It’s also the first song our babies started hearing and for me that’s very special.”

Bhushan Kumar, owner of T-Series, confirmed the news,

“Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Rajviani have composed the other four tracks. I had few expectations with this track as Shirish is a new composer. But I was pleasantly surprised and very excited on hearing the track! Akshay and Farah were planning to start the first promo with Sheila Ki Jawani but I felt we should start with this one.”
