There is some serious rocking to do!
The musical trio, Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa, are prepping up for the release of Rock On 2.
The trio said they were pleasantly surprised with the singing talent of Shraddha Kapoor. “It was an amazing experience. Shraddha (Kapoor) was great. She has sung a track called ‘Udja Re’ and when we heard her voice even we were pleasantly surprised,” Shankar said.
Talking about their careers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, as they are famously known in the industry “It was a beautiful journey but definitely not a smooth one, there were lots of ups and downs. But we are enjoying every part of it,” Loy said.
While for Shankar, 49, it is quite surprising that they are still together with the same passion they used to have back then.
“It has been like a roller-coaster ride. We are there every single day in the studio for last 20 years other than the times we have been touring around. I really feel surprise myself that how we have done it. It’s quite a thing, where a partnership has lasted for 20 years and it is still going on and still our films are releasing and we are doing so many more films,” Shankar added.
The trio has composed music for over 50 soundtracks in five languages – Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi and English.
They have won numerous awards, including National Film Award (India), Filmfare Awards, IIFA Awards.
They are often referred to as the “Amar Akbar Anthony” of Hindi film music industry by many people. – CINEWS
