Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy Quit Prabhas’ Magnum Opus Saaho. Here’s Why!
Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have chosen to walk out of Prabhas’ Saaho because they are not comfortable to collaborate with external music composers
Earlier, it was announced that Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy would be creating music for Prabhas’ magnum opus Saaho but on 27th of this month, the musical trio opted out of the film. “We wish to inform all our fans that Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have opted out of composing the music for #Saaho here’s wishing #Prabhas @Sujeetsign #Vamsi #Pramod #Shyam all the luck for the film :)”, they tweeted from their official Twitter account.
Shankar Mahadevan during a telephonic interview with IANS told them, "The music company wanted to add a few songs from external composers. We are not very comfortable with that.
Normally, we prefer to remain the sole composers of the film. That's why we decided to opt out.” Meanwhile, here’s his tweet: “ We wish to inform all our fans that Shankar Ehsaan Loy have opted out of composing the music for #Saaho here’s wishing #Prabhas @Sujeetsign #Vamsi #Pramod #Shyam all the luck for the film :)
The publication also asked about how many songs were being composed for Saaho to which he replied,
"Not much. Just creatively... we were jamming on some ideas. Nowadays you see multi-composers happening on many of the films. They checked if it's okay with us. We said 'no'. He further added, "We are not comfortable doing that because we feel one composer retains the identity of the film. There's got to be a creative thread that joins all the songs. We preferably also do the background score, but even if that's not there, at least the songs..." Reminding about their earlier films, Shankar added, "If you see all our films, like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Taare Zameen Par and Kal Ho Naa Ho, we have done music as one set of composers. We don't have anything against having multi-composers. But we are not comfortable doing that."
