Chopra and Rajkumar Hirani have roped in an independent music artiste Sheldon
Bangera to compose three songs for Sanjay Dutt biopic. Sheldon is known for his
songs like Samarth Hai from the album Raaja Hai Mahaan & Tu Kabhi Na Chode
Mujhko from Nachoonga.
Probably one of the tunes which caught the makers’ attention.
A source close to the film told us, “The makers wanted to have a fresher approach for the music of the film but at the same time someone who could also keep the commercial aspect in mind. Someone had recommended Sheldon’s name to them and this is when they heard his tunes and asked him to send his songs to them.”

“The makers liked the rough scratch immediately and they decided to give Sheldon three songs for the film,” the source further added. As of now, Sheldon is working on the final mixes of the tracks.

Apart from Sheldon, Amaal Mallik will be composing a couple of tracks for the film.
A few months ago, SpotboyE.com told you that Pritam who was in talks with the makers for bagging the composing duties for the film had walked out of the project. When we called Pritam to get to the bottom of the matter, he had a rather diplomatic answer, "I was never a part of the film. Raju (Rajkumar Hirani) and I were speaking about it. What a terrific project. Would have loved to do it but I didn't have enough time."
Coming back to our story, we wish Sheldon good luck for his Bollywood debut!
