Anand Raj Anand steps in Uttam Singh’s shoes:

Rumour : A few weeks ago, Vijeta Productions had formally announced your name as the music director of SHAHEED BHAGAT SINGH, being produced by Sunny Deol. However, we were surprised to learn that music director Anand Raaj Anand has been signed to compose the music of the film. Does that mean you have opted out? Uttam Singh : I can only state that I did have a sitting at Manoj-ji’s (Manoj Kumar) place, when he was planning to handle the script of the film. In fact, I was approached to compose the music of the film through him. When Manoj-ji opted out of the film as writer, I was automatically out of the project as well. That’s all that I know. No doubt, I had given a success in GADAR, but I feel it is up to every producer to judge what he thinks is right or wrong for him. Ive been composing music for 35 years now and developments such as these don’t really upset me. But I am composing the music of Time Magnetics’ Anil Sharma-directed film THE HERO. Anand Raaj Anand : I do believe that Uttam-ji was earlier signed to compose the music for the film. But as of now, I have been signed as the solo music director of the film. Its an important film for me and I am going to give my best to it. I will be recording continuously for the film from 1st March for a period of 22 days. Besides, this will be my second patriotic film, since I have also been signed to compose the music of Nimbus’ Sanjay Dutt starrer SARHAD PAAR. Its a great opportunity to do something for the country. I recall how people still dance to the tune of It Happens Only In India whenever the song is played at a show.
