When we called Pritam to get to the bottom of it, 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."

Well, we all know that Pritam is currently on a sabbatical which will last for a year.

Pritam made the announcement on social media last month, writing: "With the release of Jab Harry Met Sejal, the 3 most gruelling months of my life come to an end. It's been exhausting and challenging with 4 films, over 25 songs, over 20 musicals and background music of Jagga Jasoos all happening back to back. How I wish that the releases were spaced out but nonetheless it's been a personally inspiring ride. Also learned a lot of new lessons in this journey. Thank you all for your constant love and support. I had decided last year not to sign on any new projects till the completion of JHMS and with its release, I can take a small break and will come back to take on new projects, as no matter how hard, challenging and sleep depriving the process is, this is what I love.  Thank you guys again, will see you in a year or year and a half with some new films.”

Coming back to the Ranbir Kapoor starrer, it isn't clear as to who will finally compose the music of the film. Ranbir has finished the shoot of the biopic along with co-stars Dia Mirza, Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal.
