Anurag Kashyap is fast becoming one of the most prolific names in Bollywood. Now we hear he’s also making a foray into music by composing for his co-production, Queen, which stars Kangana Ranaut in a de-glamourised role for the first time.
A few months ago, Anurag stumbled upon the work of a young composer called Rupesh Kumar Ram in Shimla. Impressed with what he had created using a folk song titled Ranjhana, Anurag decided to enhance and tweak the track to make it work for his film.
Says a source, “Anurag, discussed with Rupesh what they could do with the song and he made it fit the requirements of the movie by enhancing or tweaking it here and there. It has now been included in the official soundtrack of the film.”
Director Vikas Bahl said, “Anurag has an eye for finding talent in remote corners of the country. Rupesh has created a beautiful track and it adds to one of the most emotional moments of the film.”
Queen revolves around the story of a small-town girl, who moves to the big city to realise her dreams. It is scheduled for a September 2013 release.
