With a couple of months left for the release of the much awaited movie of Baahubali Prabhas ‘Saaho’, the movie has reportedly received a setback as Bollywood composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy on Monday announced that they opted out of the movie.
They reasoned that as they were uncomfortable with the idea of having more composers working on the same film, they had decided to opt out of ‘Saaho’.
A tweet posted by their official handle read: “We wish to inform all our fans that Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have opted out of composing the music for ‘Saaho’. Here’s wishing #Prabhas #Sujeetsign #Vamsi #Pramod #Shyam all the luck for the film.”
On the decision of opting out Shankar Mahadevan, also a singer, “The music company wanted to add a few songs from external composers. We are not very comfortable with that. Normally, we prefer to remain the sole composers of the film. That’s why we decided to opt out.”
He further said, “We are not comfortable doing that because we feel one composer retains the identity of the film. There’s got to be a creative thread that joins all the songs. We preferably also do the background score, but even if that’s not there, at least the songs…” ‘Saaho’ is expected to hit the screens on August 15, 2019.
