April 12, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Songs from Hrithik Roshan starrer movie Kites has been remixed. The songs are ‘Dil Kyun Yeh Mera’, ‘Tum Bhi Ho Wahi’ and ‘Zindagi Do Pal Ki’composed by Rajesh Roshan.
T-Series Head Honcho Bhushan Kumar had tough time convincing Rakesh Roshan, the Producer of ‘Kites’ to include remixes in album of the movie. Finally, Rakesh Roshan agreed to include remixes in his upcoming film. Rakesh Roshan has held the record of not including remixes in any of his movies. Finally that record has been broken with the movie ‘Kites’ starring Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori along with Kangana Ranaut.
According to Kumar, T-series top man, “Somehow I convinced Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik for the remixes. It was definitely hard to convince them, but I gave them reasons to justify what I was saying. Hrithik understood my concerns because he himself visits clubs and pubs and he knows what kind of music is played. I managed to change their opinion,”
Kumar even mentioned the reason why producers and composers don’t want remixes in their movies. Normally, producers and composers really work hard towards their song and after all these efforts they don’t want extra beats to be added to these songs.
But even if composers and producers don’t remix their song, still some DJ’s go ahead and remix it so that they can play that in clubs or even put them on web. But most of the time quality of these songs is not up to date. That’s why it’s better that companies take initiatives to remix songs so that people can receive better quality.
According to Kumar, remixes from ‘Kites’ have helped him to earn more revenue. Kumar even mentioned that he likes experimenting with music of big banner releases. As ‘Kites’ is a big film so we thought of doing something different with it and went ahead with releasing the music on the radio. We have decided to do something different for ‘Ra One’ which is also expected to be one of the biggest movies of the year.
