Ranbir-Priyanka all set to shoot for added song in Anjaana Anjaani

Exactly three months remain for the release of Anjaana Anjaani and the Ranbir KapoorPriyanka Chopra starrer is catching on some serious heat. Even though director Siddharth Anand has completed the entire shooting of the film and is currently neck deep into post production, he is aiming for that final thrust to make the film and its music turn out to be something special. Result? A brand new song was composed for Anjaana Anjaani early this week, the shooting for which would take place coming Monday.

“I was looking for that special number which would turn out to be one of the highlight numbers in the album”, informs Siddharth Anand who has fast put together the entire plan in place to get the song up and running, “I was constantly having conversations with Vishal and Shekhar and the result was this fantastic club track.”

Though a title song has already been composed and picturised for Anjaana Anjaani, this club track too would be an added title song. However, it hasn’t been created for only promotional means and would actually feature as a part of the film.

“Space for this song was always there in the film. It was never an after thought. I wanted a track that would have an edge to it and was willing to wait before Vishal-Shekhar came up with something extraordinary”, adds Siddharth who is working with the composer duo for fourth film in a row after Salaam Namaste, Ta Ra Rum Pum and Bachna Ae Haseeno.

“Ask us”, laughs Vishal who along with Shekhar had to present a barrage of tunes to Siddharth before he consented to the one he loved most, “Thank God for that. He made us slog and the results are there to be seen. It was actually fun to make this song. The earlier title track was soft and melodious while this one is a good club track.”

No wonder, Anjaana Anjaani is fast turning out to be the musical to look out for. While there were six songs already present as the part of the film, the seventh addition in the form of this special title track makes it a full blown musical entertainer. In todays multiplex era when the norm is to have not more than four or five songs in a single film, seven songs sounds like a pretty good deal.

“Well, that shouldn’t be surprising for anyone actually”, reasons Siddharth, “Anjaana Anjaani is a love story and history beckons that any love story is bound to be very strong in music, both qualitatively as well as quantitatively. There is place for all the seven songs in the film and I can’t wait to shoot the latest one starting Monday.”

In spite of the fact that both Ranbir and Priyanka are super busy actors, they were game to shoot for an additional song in the film. Confirms Siddharth, “Yes, they both are quite gung-ho about the song. The song is set in a New York club and we have created a set in Mumbai for that. It sure will turn out to be a major highlight of the film.”

One wonders though whether producer Sajid Nadiadwala had any second thoughts about the song, considering the fact that an added song means addition to the film’s budget.

“For the kind of genre that Anjaana Anjaani belongs to, there was no point of having any second thoughts about adding another song”, says Sajid Nadiadwala who is currently in London, “I am anyways quite excited about the music here which to me has some of the most fabulous work that a film of mine has boasted of. One more song only makes me feel even more elated. There was no question of even thinking about any added costs.”
