Composer Gourov Dasgupta’s purple patch continues after a slew of hit tracks like ‘Ishq Namazaa’ from The Big Bull, his single ‘Saiyyonee’ featuring Asim Riaz and ‘Dream mein entry’ which became viral. His upcoming composition ‘Hanjugam’ from Bhuj: The Pride of India promises to be the love song of the season. It had impressed producer/actor Ajay Devgn enough for him to reshoot the song sequence to incorporate the song in the film.
Interestingly, the film had a love song sequence which was shot on another composition. It was during their recording sessions for The Big Bull, also produced by Devgn, that he heard ‘Hanjugam’ and immediately wanted the song to be part of Bhuj’s narrative.
Subsequently, the entire song sequence was reshot with Devgn and the caste on Gourov’s ‘Hanjugam’ by director Abhishek Dudhaiya
"My first film with Ajay sir was Total Dhamaal, that's when my association with him started. Then I did 'The Big Bull' with him which came out recently and this is my third collaboration with him. The song is called 'Hanjugam', it's one of my most favourite songs and it's sung beautifully by Jubin Nautiyal and written by Devshi Khanduri.. It's a brilliant and massive film and this is the only love song in the film picturised on Ajay sir," Gourov said.
Narrating how ‘Hanjugam’ won Devgn over, Gourov said, “During the Music sessions of 'The Big Bull', Ajay sir had heard this song and he immediately took it for Bhuj and I was overjoyed!Later on I got to that they had already shot another song on the same sequence, but Ajay sir loved ‘Hanjugam’ so much that director Abhishek Dudhaiya went back and re-shot the entire sequence with my song for 3 consecutive days and that's something that hardly ever happens in the industry. I was completely overwhelmed and full of gratitude when I heard this. I am grateful for the love and support I have got from Ajay Sir and would also like to thank Kookie Gulati who was instrumental in playing my songs for Ajay sir.. This is probably going to be the biggest song of my career so far."
Another one of Gourov's tracks 'Dream Main Entry', starring Rakhi Sawant, recently released and went viral in no time.
On the film front, apart from 'Hanjugam', Gourov has also composed a track for Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi starrer 'Chehre’.
