Nagma plunges into direction

Music director Nadeem [of Nadeem-Shravan duo] has a heart of gold, if this incident is an indicator.

A week ago, Deepak Grewal, who had been associated with Sunny Deol, Shekhar Kapur and Rajkumar Santoshi [right from GHAYAL, GHATAK, LAJJA, CHINA GATE to THE LEGEND OF BHAGAT SINGH] in the capacity of a production executive and associate director and has now turned independent director with YAARIYAN [starring Amrish Puri, Om Puri and Gurdas Mann in stellar roles], had approached the music director duo to record a song for the Punjabi film, to be shot entirely in Vancouver, Canada.

While Deepak expected N-S to either quote a huge fee for one song or reject the offer outright [the duo don’t believe in sharing credits with other music composers in a film], he was in for surprise when Nadeem told him that he’d record the song absolutely free. I was touched by this gesture I was completely speechless for a while, Deepak informs me.

What prompted Nadeem to be so generous? I did it for two reasons, Nadeem [speaking from London] informs me, I’ve shared a long association with Deepak. Earlier, when he was with Sunny and Raj-ji [Santoshi], we’ve interacted on several occasions. The second reason being, new talent should always be encouraged. As a senior, it’s my duty to extend a helping hand to someone who is taking his first big step in life.

A visibly-moved Deepak has now decided against hiring the services of N-S for just one song for YAARIYAN. And, in fact, has gone ahead and signed the music director duo to compose the entire soundtrack of his second film, in Hindi this time.
