Big B To Make Music Composer Debut With R Balki’s “Chup”
Bombay: The upcoming ‘Chup’ film will mark veteran superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s debut as a music composer, director R Balki has leaked details as the film is set to be released on September 23rd.
The film is a romantic psychopathic thriller, a thought Balki had after ‘Cheeni Kum’ and decided to write it much later. The poster revealing the release date was released on Thursday.
Speaking of the same, Balki said, “‘Chup’ is special for more than one reason. For me, the main reason is that it marks Amitabh Bachchan’s official debut as a music composer.”
Big B and Balki have a long-standing association and the superstar has worked with him in almost all of his films.
The director then revealed how Big B’s musical composition debut went, “Amitji saw ‘Chup’ and played an instinctive original melody on his piano as he relived the movie. It was his way to express his feelings for the film, paying homage. This composition, his gift to the film, will be the final title of ‘Chup’. I don’t think there can be an artist whose sensibility can beat Bachchan’s and let ‘Chup’ have his touch!”
The film stars Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan, Shreya Dhanwanthary and Pooja Bhatt. The original story is by R Balki, with the screenplay and dialogue co-written by R Balki, critic-turned-writer Raja Sen and Rishi Virmani.
