Emraan Hashmi back to where he belongs

By Joginder Tuteja, Glamsham Editorial

What's the common factor in Emraan Hashmi's last few films? Well, none of these boasted of trademark 'Emraan Hashmi' kind of songs. Whether it is GHANCHAKKAR, EK THI DAAYAN, RUSH or SHANGHAI, each of these had the kind of music that was miles away from the kind that goes with Emraan's territory.

All of that is going to change now with DIL HAI KI MAANTA NAHI remake, work on which has already begun.

"For starters, the film would be an out and out musical and would boast of as many as 8-10 songs," informs a source attached to the film, "Just like AASHIQUI 2 which had music playing an integral part of the narrative, even DIL HAI KI MAANTA NAHI would have abundance of songs."

Considering the fact that the original, which was again a Mahesh Bhatt and T-Series venture, too had a song arriving after every 10-15 minutes, the remake would feature a rapid occurrence of songs as well.

"Moreover, the compositions would be totally in line with the kind that Emraan's fans like," the source adds, "In his last few films, the makers had experimented with music. Emraan too was exploring different audience with many of these films. However for DIL HAI KI MAANTA NAHIN, it is going to be straight for the gallery. Bhushan Kumar and Mahesh Bhatt are very sure about that."

As a result of that, multiple composers are coming under the same roof with their best songs as the makers have made up their mind to go with an ensemble soundtrack, just like the case was in AASHIQUI 2.

Confirms Bhushan Kumar, "Yes, as of now we are trying out multiple composers. Expectations are really high from DIL HAI KI MAANTA NAHIN, both for the film and its music. Moreover with Emraan in there, the magnitude is manifold. We have to make sure that audience get to hear what they expect from him and us. There won't be any compromise."
