Tusshar Kapoor is in a joyous mood, courtesy One Two Three which has managed to be a sweet little success. However, he is still found fuming. Reason? He is surprised by a tabloid report which recently reported that Bappa Lahiri, son of Bappi Lahiri, had been bundled out off his home production C Kkompany, as the composer of the film.
"Who said that Bappa Lahiri is no more a part of C Kkompany? He is very much in and all of us here are very happy with what he has done so far. I don't know from where such rumours originate from. It is irresponsible reporting."
The reason stated around Bappa's exit as a composer was that the production houses of neither Ekta Kapoor (Balaji Telefilms) nor Suniel Shetty (Popkorn Entertainment) were pleased with the tunes he had composed. It was reported that Anand Raaj Anand has been entrusted with the responsibility of coming up with a fresh soundtrack
"All untrue. Seriously, this is just a false alarm and nothing else. Bappa is very much on board", says Tusshar while standing up for the young composer.
Reports also indicate that Anand Raj Anand was roped in as replacement composer. "Arrey yaar, he has been roped in but only for one song", clarifies Tusshar, "Isn't a trend to have an additional composer to step in so as to create a tune for a promotional music video? It's the same case here as well. While the three tracks by Bappa form a part of the film, Anand Raj Anand's track would be for promotional purposes. Now we can't help it if someone chooses to find anything controversial here."
Rumour also has it that Anand Raj Anand would be re-recording the songs already recorded by Bappa. "Again untrue", Tusshar gets irritated here, "Leave the young boy alone. It is his first major film where he gets to make as many as three songs. He is doing a fine job and no one is touching what he has already completed."
Slated to arrive in the month of June, C Kkompany would be Tusshar's second comic flick of the season after One Two Three. Directed by debutant Sachin Yardi, the film is a laugh riot and stars Raima Sen, Anupam Kher, Rajpal Yadav and Mithun Chakraborty in a principal roles. There is also a long list of special appearances in the film ranging from Mahesh Bhatt, Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor to Dilip Prabhawalkar and Sakshi Tanwar.
