Amaal Mallik has replaced Pritam as music director of Emraan Hashmi’s upcoming release ‘Azhar’.
According to Bollywood Hungama, Pritam opted out of the project due to health issues and time constraints. A spokesperson for Pritam said that Pritam had lost out on three weeks of work due to hospital visits in February. With the film releasing in May, the makers could not risk delaying the music of the film.
Mallik has reportedly already composed two romantic tracks for the film. However, Ekta Kapoor has requested Pritam to compose at least one song for ‘Azhar’ for good-will she shares with the music maestro.
‘Azhar’ releases on 13th May 2016.
