Ace music composer Pritam, who is known for his chart topping numbers, has done it yet again with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’s title track. After a string of hit numbers like ‘Kabira’ from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and the peppy ‘Balam Pichkari’, this is the second time the duo of Karan Johar and Pritam have come together to wow us with his exceptional music. This heart-touching number is definitely on its way to be the new romantic anthem of the year!

Furore over Zhu Zhu pisses off Salman Tubelight to have a Bollywood leading lady too

12 August 2016 2:40 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

It wasn't meant to be out. At least not yet. Chinese actress Zhu Zhu prematurely announced on a social network her presence in Kabir Khan's new film Tubelight which is currently being shot in Ladakh. Salman Khan Productions who are the co-producers of Tubelight were horrified by the Chinese actress' over-enthusiasm. The picture was hastily taken off the internet. However by then the information that she was Salman's love interest in Tubelight had already gone viral. Much to the annoyance of Salman and his team. Says a source close to the project, "They wanted to introduce her properly after the current shooting in Ladakh which goes on for another fortnight. Zhu Zhu was immediately asked to remove her picture with Salman in Ladakh which she had so happily and innocently posted. In her defence, she didn't mean to jump protocol because she didn't know what the protocol was." Incidentally »

Pritam to recreate ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ magic once again with Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’

4 August 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The hit trio of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is back! Pritam Chakraborty’s compositions topped the charts last year when he joined hands with director Kabir Khan for the Salman Khan magnum opus ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. The three have now come together once again to try and recreate the magic of last year’s blockbuster with ‘Tubelight’, which is Kabir Khan’s next starring Salman.

Sources say that Bollywood’s ace music-composer recently met Kabir to try and understand the music that would best suit the script of ‘Tubelight’. Since the film is an Indo-Sino period drama, buzz is that it is expected to have Indian music with a Chinese touch. With Pritam in full form, music and films-lovers are now waiting to see what does the much-in-demand musician, pull out from his sleeve this time around!

Aamir Khan to rap for a special song in Dangal

20 July 2016 4:11 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Aamir Khan doesn't want to leave any stone unturned for his much ambitious venture Dangal which has been in the making for the past two years. The wrestling drama that unfolds by the end of this year will have the actor rapping to the beats. Though Aamir has previously sung for films like Ghulam, this is different we hear. The song is said to be a special addition in the film which is a biopic on real life wrestler Mahavir Phogat. In fact, it is also being said that the superstar has already started prepping for it and has been attending several sessions with music director Pritam and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya who have composed and written the song respectively. Knowing the kind of perfection that Aamir strives for, he has been holding several practice sessions before he records the song. Dangal also stars Sakshi Tanwar, Fatima Sana Sheikh, Sanya Malhotra »

Srk-Kajol set new record with Pritam’s ‘Gerua’!

24 June 2016 11:08 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Pritam Chakraborty has set a record of sorts with his song ‘Gerua’ from the Shah Rukh KhanKajol starrer ‘Dilwale’(Rohiymt Shetty). The song composed by the ace musician and directed by Farah Khan has become the most-viewed song crossing the 100 million mark in the shortest duration ever.

Congratulations and compliments poured in for Pritam as the romantic track touched record-shattering numbers.

Upbeat about it, Pritam took to Twitter and shared, “From what I hear, Gerua is the first Bollywood song to cross 100 Million in the shortest duration. Thank You#Gerua100Million.”

However, looks like the most-sought-after-musician in the industry today has little time to celebrate, as he is currently working on yet another biggie, the Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal. Now let’s wait and watch the maestro hit the high chords again!

Just to share the magic again here is the video!

The forthcoming Balaji Motion Pictures film Azhar has been directed by Tony D’Souza and will see actor Emraan Hashmi play the role of a cricketer who has been supposedly “framed” for match-fixing. Nargis Fakhri, Prachi Desai and Lara Dutta also star in the film. The soundtrack has music by a mixture of composers: Pritam, Amaal Malik, DJ Chetas and a re-worked track by yesteryear composers Kalyanji and Anandji. Actor Emraan Hashmi is always known to have outstanding music in his films, so let’s see how this soundtrack fares!

The album opens with the romantic ballad Bol Do Naa Zara, which has been sung by Armaan Malik and composed by Amaal Malik with lyrics by Rashmi Virag. What is refreshing about this song is that it actually stays in your mind and does not give you the deja vu feeling of having heard it before (as can happen with »
