Legendary Singer Hariharan, the voice behind several soulful melodies over the years – from the title track of Hum Saath Saath Hain to Yun Hi Chala Chal Rahi in Swades has given soul touching songs and music for upcoming anticipated high budget Indo Polish film No Means No helmed by Vikash Verma, starring Dhruv Verma in lead. Alongside Hariharan, Shreya Ghoshal has also given her melodious vocal to the songs of the film.
Sharing about his working experience Hariharan said,”No means no is an international Polish Indian Film, directed by Vikash Verma which stars Dhruv Verma in a lead role. Incidently me and my son Akshay Hariharan has done music for the movie. It was a very interesting project with lot of fusion music and electronic background score made by Akshay. We loved working in this project.”
Hariharan Ji thought that following where the movie has been shot, the sound scores should also have a distinctly European feel in it. He made liberal use of cellos and pianos to bring out the sound of European instrumentals. And he also got some of the best singers from Germany, Belarus and other parts of Europe to get the best background scores. His son Akshay Hariharan is the music producer of ‘No Means No’. Karan Hariharan is also one of the singers of the movie.
Music composer and producer Akshay Hariharan feels elated and states,”No means no is one of the most anticipated film directed by Vikash Verma, staring Dhruv Verma and a host of great actors. I’m very privilege to be the music producer and composer of this movie.Its been a great experience as a lot of hard work has gone through and lot of guidance by Hari Ji was given to me. It’s basically a fusion of Indian, European, Electronic and all kinds of different genres of music. Hopefully we have done justice to it.”
