The makers of 2 States, starring Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor, recently launched the song Mast Magan from the original motion picture soundtrack of the film.
The song has been shot in real locations in Tamil Nadu,a temple at Mylapore and a pier at Ennore beach.
Producer Karan Johar says, “The idea was to create a romantic album that not only has soul, but also young energy. These kind of songs have a longer shelf life.They’re not item-based or seasonal.”
Director Abhishek Varman was keen on Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy copmposing the soundtrack. The trio has composed many hit albums for both production houses producing the film, Dharma Productions and Sajid Nadiawala Productions.
Sajid Nadiadwala adds, “SEL have given great music in my films Housefull and Heyy Babyy. Mast Magan is my favourite track in the 2 States album and I think it will grow.”
While praising the singer Arjit Singh, Sajid says, “His voice has a haunting quality and makes the song stay with you/”
Karan mentions for lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya, “He is a strong talent in music. Amitabh’s words tend to have a colloquial nature, but they also have a tremendous amount of soul.”
2 States releases in UK cinemas on 18th April 2014.
