Sanjay Leela Bhansali Working On A Music Album For Lata Mangeshkar

September 22, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / Pen Men at Work): It is a known fact by now that renowned filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is turning music composer for his upcoming movie Guzaarish, which stars Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. But the latest news is that Bhansali, who is a huge fan of melody queen Lata Mangeshkar, is working on another album for her and he has created and composed all the numbers himself.

In fact, many people close to the director are reportedly ignorant about this news. On this September 28, India's Nightingale will turn 82 and this secret project of Bhansali will start getting attention from him as he has been craving for it since several years. The director is not ready to speak about this project. However, a source close to Bhansali was quoted saying that Sanjay has been busy with Guzaarish and its music since last one year as it is his first movie as a music composer. Now, he wants to give full concentration to his dream project, added the source.

Sanjay was quoted saying that he knows the every nuance in Lataji’s voice and feels that there is much music left to be untapped in her throat yet. He said that initially he wanted to create just one song for Lata in Guzaarish but later he changed his mind and thought of utilizing the supreme excellence of her voice.
