Mumbai (ANI): Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar unveiled the music album of his upcoming flick Karthik Calling Karthik in Mumbai. Directed by Vijay Lalwani and produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, this romantic-thriller stars Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Padukone in lead roles.
Bollywood's renowned composer trio: Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy have given a melodious touch to the music album. The lyrics have been penned down by Farhan's father and renowned lyricist Javed Akhtar. Launching the music album, Akhtar termed the film's music as a complete album.
Farhan said, "The music of the film has been done of course by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy with whom I have always enjoyed working. They are absolute geniuses. Every song of this film is truly outstanding for me."
"It is a complete album. There are happy songs, there are sad songs, and there is a song that can be played in a nightclub," he added. Comparing the music of this film with Bollywood Superstar Shaharukh Khan's upcoming flick My Name is Khan, composer Shankar Mahadevan said the music of Karthik Calling Karthik is youth oriented. Mahadevan said, "The music has been done according to the way Vijay Lalwani has made this film, according to the characters and according to the promos."
"Unlike the music of My Name is Khan, which is very traditional, very Sufi and Indian, the music of Karthik Calling Karthik is very western and youth oriented. It is today's music," he added. Karthik Calling Karthik revolves around a lovable loser Karthik, whose life changes with the help of someone who also claims to be Karthik. The film is a thrilling, soulful and romantic journey of Karthik's victory against all odds. The film is slated to release on February 26.
