New Delhi: Director and producer Mohit Suri who is at present gearing up for his upcoming release ‘Half Girlfriend’ has recently given the credit of his Bollywood success to the music composers and lyricists worked hard in his movie.
The 36-year-old filmmaker, whose film ‘Half Girlfriend’ will be released next month, says he would not have survived in the industry without the music in his films.
“The composers, lyricists and singers are the stars of my films. They always have been. I will take them along with meon the promotions of my films now. I want them to enjoy thelimelight.
“What would I have been without Atif Aslam, Arijit Singh, Ankit Tiwari, Toshi-Sharib? They are the ones who make my hitsfor me. I would not have been here today if not for these people,” Mohit told PTI over phone.
The director recently produced the song, “Party Nonstop”, with EMI Records, which has been composed by British-Indian musician Dr Zeus.
“The EMI records sent this song to me, but I did not know who sang it but knew we had to back this one. And when I gotto know it was Dr Zeus’ brain child, I was transported back tomy college days dancing to ‘Kangna’.
“But the sound was so new and fresh, we had to take it. So, I took the onus on myself to do the video. I enjoyed creatively producing the song.
”I thought we should not lose a good song if it’s not featured in a Bollywood film”, he said. The song features singer Jasmine Sandlas, rapper Ikka andmodel-actress Evelyn Sharma.
