It has been a Russian roulette of names, from Tanishk Bagchi to Arko Mukherjee, and now it looks like they have finally zeroed in on Amit Trivedi.

Amit had composed the score of the Alia Bhatt-Shah Rukh Khan starrer Dear Zindagi and buzz is, he will be the one to score Aanand L. Rai’s film too.

A source told that Shah Rukh was keen on having  Amit onboard.

Many music composers were asked to send their compositions to Rai for consideration and Amit's compositions suited the tone of the film.

"Shah Rukh loved the music of Dear Zindagi and it was well received by the audiences too. Thus it is quite possible that Amit Trivedi could be the composer for the film. However Amit is yet to be told about the decision," said the source.

A few months ago Swagger composer Tanishk Bagchi was zeroed down for a song in the film and both SRK and Rai were extremely happy with the final product. However, a few days ago we told you that his song had been scrapped from the film due to a change in the situation.

The yet-untitled film will be extensively shot in Meerut (Uttar Pradesh) as well as in some parts of the US. Rai was in US recently for the recce and has apparently finalized the shoot locations.

The film will reportedly go on floors in March and release next December.
