Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy, the music directors of Bollywood hits such as ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Don’, have opted out of “Saaho” in the last minute owing creative differences with director Sujith.
The team is now trying to rope in either Gibran and Thaman for the background score for the film as both the music directors had earlier worked with the production house UV Creations.
Ghibran gave music to director Sujith’s first film “Run Raja Run” and he will be composing one song for “Saaho” as well.
While UV Creations is preferring Thaman for the background score, director Sujith is in favour of Ghibran as he gels with this music director well.
UV believes Thaman would give terrific BG for such a mammoth project. A final call will be taken.
Interestingly, the film will have songs composed by different music directors, not one music composer.
“Saaho” starring Prabhas in the action role is in its last stage of shoot. Shraddha Kapoor is the heroine. It is slated for August 15, 2019 release.
