Panipat: Ajay-Atul to compose the music for Ashutosh Gowariker’s period film
The brother duo have Marathi films such as “Natarang”, “Sairaat” and Bollywood movies “Singham” and “Agneepath” to their credit, including “Jogwa” in Marathi for which they received National Award for best music direction in 2008.”It is a great honour for us to work with a great director like Ashu sir. He is not only an excellent filmmaker but also has very good musical sensibilities, and we have seen that through all his films. We are excited to be a part of his next magnum opus – Panipat,” Ajay-Atul said in a statement.
Gowariker said the music duo have the “musical sensibilities” required for the film.
Rohit Shelatkar, who is co-producing the film with Gowariker under his company Vision World, is excited to have Ajay-Atul on board.
The film, which features Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt in pivotal roles, is based on the third battle of Panipat that took place in 1761.
