National Film Award winning lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya, who
has penned all the songs for Aamir Khan's upcoming film Dangal,
said that the actor-producer is very involved by nature in the
creative process but never interfered in it.
"Aamir sir was involved, not interfering in the process of music
and lyrics writing. The best part is Aamir sir understands the
nuances of lyrics," Amitabh told IANS on his birthday.
Asked if there is any reason behind interacting with the media
on his birthday, he said, "It actually coincided with my birthday.
But I am enjoying the day talking about our upcoming films and my
Sharing his birthday memories, the "Emotional Attyachar" lyricist said, "I had a very normal childhood where all my friends
would come for cake cutting and my mother would cook something
special for me. After staying away from home for long, now that my
parents shifted with me, I am expecting that Ma will prepare a
birthday special Payesh (a Bengali sweet dish) tonight."
While "Haanikaarak Bapu" and the title song "Dangal" is gaining
popularity among the listeners, Amitabh says, "The film has five
songs and all of them are involved in the narration. All the songs
are adding up to the story. So they are situational."
Sharing his experiences of working with Aamir Khan, Amitabh
said, "I was one of those youngsters who bunked classes to watch Jo
Jeeta Wohi Sikandar five times. Working with him was not even in my
wildest dreams. So today, when I am interacting with him, writing
for his film, it is absolutely overwhelming."
Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, Dangal starring Aamir Khan and Sakshi
Tanwar in lead roles, is releasing on December 23.
