Trivia


 

    Album

  • This Gulzar film was plagued by many problems and took four years to complete. One of the challenges was related to the film's music. Early on in the film's making, Lata Mangeshkar, who did the muhurat for the film, indicated to Gulzar that she would not be able to sing for the film. It was only later that Gulzar found out her reason for declining to sing - she had already sung for two non-film albums of Meera bhajans and she felt that her singing for a commercial film would dilute her previous work. Gulzar had engaged music directors Laxmikant - Pyarelal to compose the music for the film. LP tried to convince Lata Mangeshkar to sing for the film but when she declined again, they walked out of the project. Gulzar's friend, R.D. Burman, too did not want to compose for the film. This left Gulzar and the film's producers in a quandary. Eventually, someone thought of Pandit Ravi Shankar. Since Panditji spent most of his time in the US, Gulzar visited him there, read him the film's script and got his OK to compose music for the film. By the time Gulzar left America, the recording schedule had been planned and so had Meerabai's voice - Vani Jayaram.[1][2]
