Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s film ‘Mirzya’ is all set to hit the theatres soon. The film has a heart touching song sung and composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. The song of the film beautifully suits with the story of Mirzya and Sahibaan.
The title song of the film is composed by Sufi singers from India, Pakistan, and Balochistan while Nooran sisters, Jyoti and Sultan from Jalandhar have sung the title track from Pakistan.
Balochi folk singer Akhtar Chanal Zahri also flew in to pitch in for the title song giving a kind of epic heft to Gulzar’s lyrics.
“Sain Zahoor is an interesting character. His look itself is so amazing. He is so innocent and truly immersed in his own music and world. Until 2006, he never put his voice into a recording studio. The unique thing is when you teach him the lyrics of the song, he draws pictures instead of writing syllables… Amazing! And that’s how he remembers the words… Truly a delight to work with,” Mahadevan said.
“Akhtar bhai also is so much fun to work with and had an amazing voice texture… We had to compose the pieces around these two exquisite singers’ voices so that their presence doesn’t look forced into the song,” he said.
Around 300 hours of music has been recorded by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy for Mirzya.
