Mumbai, Dec 12: Sony Music has acquired the music rights of Dharma Productions' upcoming movie ‘Agneepath', a remake of Amitabh Bachchan's 1990 cult movie, the company said today.
The ‘Agneepath' music album comprises six songs and Sony Music will first release an item number—‘Chikni Chameli', featuring Katrina Kaif, digitally on December 12, while the album will be available digitally on December 16.
The hard copy of the album will be released on December 19 across the key retail outlets.
Starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Rishi Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt, ‘Agneepath' releases on January 26 next year.
National award winning musical duo Ajay-Atul have composed the music of the Karan Malhotra directed film.
These songs encompass a wide array of themes ranging from romance and dance to quawalli and devotional songs, making each of it blend strongly with the theme of the scene/ character.
The extensive use of live instruments for recording these tracks gives this soundtrack tremendous scale and impact, said Sanujeet Bhujabal, Marketing Director of Sony Music India.
Speaking on the acquisition of music rights, Bhujabal said the six new songs of this film are not only original and refreshing, but also soulful and unforgettable.
“This is our 11th venture with Dharma and it's always a matter of pride and a great experience to work with them. The soundtrack is varied and we expect a great response from music enthusiasts,” Bhujabal added.
Sonu Nigam, Roop Kumar Rathod and Shreya Ghoshal have lent their voices for the soundtracks and the sizzling dance number ‘Chikni Chameli' filmed on Katrina Kaif, will be its highlight.
