The makers of ‘Begum Jaan’ have released the first song from the film – “Prem Mein Tohre”. The best part about this song is the composer-singer duo. “Prem Me Tohre” has been crooned by veteran singing sensation Asha Bhosle and the music of the song has been composed by star composer Anu Malik.
Commenting on the same, music composer, Anu Malik said, “I was not keeping well and Ashaji came over to meet me. I immediately told my wife that I have to work with her. Even Srijit Mukherji, the director was unaware of this. I rang up Srijit from the ICU and told him I will resume work in 10 days. I composed a tune at the recording studio, and told Srijit that we should get Ashaji to sing the song. Srijit jumped at the idea. I immediately rang Ashaji and told her to come to my place the next day. When she heard the track, she said this song marks the comeback of Asha Bhosle! My first reaction was when did you go in the first place! Her reaction after recording the song was priceless! She exclaimed that she was truly back! I loved her reaction so much since Ashaji loves singing and music. If you hear the song you will know that such a tone and voice cannot be copied or matched. She’s a magic and a miracle! I am honoured to have had the chance to work with her. She’s 82 and if you hear her now you will be spellbound!”
‘Begum Jaan’ releases on 14th April 2017.
