In Bollywood, Pritam is one of the most popular music directors. Right now, Pritam is having a great run with his music scores. For both the big projects as well as small projects, makers try to bring Pritam on board. Now, Pritam has been signed for the music of Ranveer Singh’s 83 which will be directed by Kabir Khan.
Regarding brief for music to Pritam, director Kabir Khan has said “The brief for any film comes from the script. It’s a process where we read the script together, discuss the various situations for a song, decide the mood of the song and then Pritam starts creating the melody. ’83 is an extremely inspirational story of human triumph with a lot of humour and emotion along the journey and the album, which Pritam is creating, will capture all these elements. Needless to say, we will be making an iconic sports anthem.”
Excited Ranveer has expressed, “Pritamda is an extremely special and rare talent. His contribution to Hindi music is immense. He’s given us some of the most memorable songs of the past decade. I’m a huge admirer of his work. I’ve wanted to collaborate with him since many years and it’s finally happening with this film. I could not be more thrilled about this prospect. We are hoping to create a memorable film with an iconic anthem to go with it.”
Thanking Ranveer and Kabir for welcoming him on board, Pritam has said “Kabir’s solid presence and Ranveer’s vibrant energy together promise an exciting sports film and I am looking forward to working on the score for ’83 with music that matches their madness. The movie is even more special because the memory and the euphoria of the 1983 World Cup victory is still fresh with me even though I was a young kid! It was a moment for India like no other.”
