Sanjay Leela Bhansali has started to try his hands in composing song from Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone starrer ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram-Leela’ in 2013. Now, he will be coming with the movie Baiju Bawra. Regarding composing music for this movie, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has said “It is the biggest challenge of my career: I am not even thinking of the colossal music Naushad saab did in ‘Baiju Bawra’ in 1952. It is impossible to scale those heights.” However, he is going to give his best shot for this movie.
It has been said that through Baiju Bawra a new singer will be launched. Mohd Rafi has showcased his talent as the singer in the original movie with the songs like “Man tadpat hari darshan ko aaj” and “O duniya ke rakhwale”. These songs are still loved by the people. Legendary classical maestros like DV Paluskar and Ustad Amir Ali have been part of the music team behind the movie also. According to the reports, Sanjay has already decided on the new voice that will be introduced with the movie. Bhansali believes that the new voice will able to do justice to the songs. In case of female playback, Bhansali acknowledges the fact that Lata Mangeshwar cannot be replaced.
On the occasion, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has said “Who can sound as pristine and sublime as Lataji did in ‘Mohe bhool gaye saawariya’ and ‘Bachpan ki mohabbat’ in the earlier ‘Baiju Bawra’? There can never be another singer like Lataji. But I will continue to look for echoes of her voice in all the female singers I work with”
