Pahuldip Singh Sandhu, popularly known by his stage name Steel Bangelz, has joined hands with Indian composer Pritam on the music of the Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Brahmastra. The director of the film, Ayan Mukerji reportedly sat for a meeting with Sandhu during his visit to Mumbai earlier this year. As their deal recently finalised, the record producer came on board for the upcoming film. In conversation with a leading portal, Sandhu said, "I was in Mumbai in January, where I met Ayan Mukerji and Pritam. I am collaborating with them for Brahmastra. I was approached by Ayan's team.”
The reason behind Sandhu signing up for the project? He revealed the makers of Brahmastra wanted some futuristic music, considering the project being deemed as a superhero film. “They wanted some futuristic music. It's still in the works, so I can't say much," added Sandhu.
The London-based musician is in no hurry to take up multiple Bollywood projects. "I think working with Pritam on one of the most anticipated films gives me a good space in India. I haven't taken up any other work in Bollywood. Also, I am very loyal to Ayan's vision. It would have been disrespectful had I done some other work," he said. Sandhu revealed he got to meet megastar Amitabh Bachchan and spend time with Ayan too. "It was good," he stated. However, he didn’t appear too pleased with the way in which work is carried out in the Indian film industry. "I think the way they approach music in Bollywood is so different from the UK. There are different methods. I write music from the scratch, sit there and make music. In Bollywood, they have songs already ready to go and you pick songs. For me, it's less emotional and it's like a factory," he concluded.
