It is really a tough time for Bollywood music directors as there are so many movies coming up in late 2011 and early 2012. Most of the composers are already loaded with too much work and that is creating problems for them to get their music out on time. Pritam is one of the most successful music composers in recent times and he has been working on lot of projects at the moment. However, he has decided that he will work only on Dhoom 3 for Yash Raj Films.
Earlier, Pritam was going to compose the music for Dhoom 3 and another Yash Raj Films movie called Ek Tha Tiger which stars Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. However, too many projects at one time is driving Pritam crazy and therefore Pritam decided to step up and requested Aditya Chopra to excuse him on this project. Pritam is already loaded with offers at the moment and he is composing music for Players, Tezz, Barfee, Race 2, Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2, Jannat 2 and now Dhoom 3.
Pritam said that working for two Yash Raj Films is really a great thing but working on so many projects simultaneously is not a good thing because it would hamper the quality of the songs. Aditya Chopra has decided that he would give the Ek Tha Tiger to Sohail Sen who recently composed music for Yash Raj Films’ Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. However, Aditya Chopra requested Pritam to go for Dhoom 3 because all the earlier parts of Dhoom were composed by Pritam so it would make more sense if Pritam continues composing music for the Dhoom series. Pritam will now work on the Dhoom 3 project and hopefully will come up with some groovy numbers that can make people go Dhoom once again.
