New Age Devdas

The film's music will have a strong Asian Underground influence

Anurag Kashyap is keen on making his adaptation of Devdas as modern as it can get. Produced by UTV Spotboy and titled Dev. D, the background score and a few tracks of the film have a strong Asian Underground influence.

The experimental filmmaker has roped in a British-Asian band - Twilight Players - who have just recorded a song and subsequently filmed a video for the film in Delhi recently.

The band comprises three Punjabi boys - Sinbad, Ammo and Jimi - who are equally popular for their street-style dancing. As far as their repertoire is concerned, they usually blend Asian Underground with Hindi lyrics and Latino sounds.

"I met the Twilight Players and I was bowled over by their new, cutting edge, free style of dancing, which fits in well with my film. They are a very cool bunch of guys and their attitude is so refreshing. We just finished shooting a song with them in Delhi and our entire cast and crew just gathered on the sets to watch them perform," says Anurag.
