‘Baar Baar Dekho’ is set for release in September and singer-composer Amit Trivedi reportedly walked out of the film. He’s now spoken about the reports and denied a rift with director Nitya Mehra.

In an interview with DNA, Trivedi said, “I have to clear this once and for all. Nitya and I are best of friends. We hang out together. I have had a wonderful working relationship with her, right from the day of the narration to the day we amicably parted. I don�۪t know where these rumours came from. I know a lot of big actors have to go through these kinds of rumours and I got a small taste of it.”

He also spoke about why he decided not to go ahead with the film, “Nitya had loved everything I was doing. But the producers Farhan Akhtar, Karan Johar and Ritesh Sidhwani have a lot riding on them. I was composing music which was in sync with the screenplay, but Karan wanted songs that would be more popular and become hit numbers, which is only fair. So we tried a lot of options, but time was the problem. This film was spilling over to my next project and I had no option, but to quit it. I apologised to Nitya and she was absolutely okay with it.”

Trivedi also added that there’s no problem between him and the producers, “There is no bad blood between any of us. I�۪m doing the next Dharma film,��Dear Zindagi. Ritesh called me for a movie the other day and Farhan and I recently did a concert together. Things didn�۪t work out for us in this project but we are working together in others. If Nitya comes to me tomorrow with another project, I would love to work with her.”

‘Baar Baar Dekho’ stars Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif and is slated for 9th September.
