Rock On's music is out! What makes this album different from your
The music of Rock On is out and out rock in Hindi . The
format is totally different which is the western format of Verse ,
Chorus and Bridge as opposed to the typical Mukhda and Antra . For the
first time an actor ( Farhan Akhtar
) has done some serious singing and
not just amateur stuff like has been done by other actors in Hindi
Films in the past ( barring Mr. Bachchan ) . I would say it is the
first Hindi film rock album.
How has it been working with Faran Akhtar once again after Dil
Working with Farhan is always a lot of fun and very
fulfilling he is very very talented at what he does and brings out the
best in us.What is your favorite song from the album Rock On?
For me this entire
album is special as it is a style of music i have always been into and
is very close to me.
You are also giving music for an upcoming Telgu film. How does it
feel to step out of Bollywood?
Film makers from the South have
completely different sensibilities and are very fond of good melody one
can try and experiment a little more . Working on this Telegu film has
been a lovely experience besides Telegu is a very sweet and musical
language and our melodies sound lovely in Telegu.
Chandni Chowk To China directed by Nikhil Advani starring Akhsay
Kumar and Deepika Padukone releases later this year. How would you

We have had a lot of fun composing the music for C. Chowk and the songs
have turned out nice.
Lastly what does the crystal ball show for the coming future for
That I keep playing music till the day I die and that
my growth as a musician never stops.
