Filmmaker Anurag Basu, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Jagga Jasoos, has said that the music composer understands his sensibilities. The ace director wished Pritam on his birthday and called him his family. Both Anurag and Pritam has earlier worked together in three films. Jagga Jasoos will be their fourth film together and the director said that it is more of Pritam’s film.
"Pritam is one of the greatest strengths behind my movies. He is family and I wish him bigger success on his birthday," Basu said in a statement.
"Our association started from television days since 1998. Jagga Jasoos is in fact, our fourth movie together and to be honest, Jagga Jasoos is more of Pritam's movie than mine. Pritam understands my sensibilities as a filmmaker and we continue to fight, laugh, sulk, eat together and continue to make music," he added.
He has previously worked with Basu for Life in a Metro, Gangster and Barfi!, all of which have given Bollywood some memorable songs.
On a related note, Jagga Jasoos features Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. The movie is slated to release on July 14.
