Pritam Chakraborty reveals that he had initially composed two options for the title track of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and one of those was eventually used in 2015 release Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
The title track of ADHM, crooned by Arijit Singh and penned by lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya, has been topping the charts.
But Pritam says it was not the only song composed. The other track which he had created for ADHM became 'Tu Jo Mila’ for the Salman Khan starrer.
“I had composed two options for the title track. One is the same title track 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', as you hear it now. Since the choice was made, the other track I used it in 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan',” Pritam was quoted as saying by a leading daily.
Revealing how he changed the lyrics of ADHM to suit perfect for Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Pritam said,
“So, if you take 'Kyunki tu dhadkan main dil' you can easily put it as 'Kyunki ae dil hai mushkil'. So, I had composed that song as an option for 'Ae Dil...'”
"Later, when this came in (ADHM title track), that song became 'Tu jo mila' and it was going immensely well in 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'," he said.
Isn’t it an interesting piece of information? We are sure the next time you will listen to ‘Tu Jo Mila’ the lyrics 'Kyunki tu dhadkan main dil' will swap with 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil'
Produced by Karan Johar, the upcoming romantic-drama also stars Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan. It will release on October 28.
