But they did not have enough time to rework the songs and thus music composer duo Ajay-Atul were asked to step in.

While speaking to, Ehsaan confirmed the story and said, “Yes, we were supposed to be a part of the project. But then there were a few changes in the script and which is why even the situations changed. We did not have enough time to make those amendments and thus we had to leave the project.”
