Musical couple director-lyricist Vishal Bhardwaj and his wife singer Rekha Bhardwaj are all set to show their magic in Sridhar Rangayan’s upcoming film ‘Kuch Sapney Apne’ based on a young gay couple. The film is having a world Premiere in London at the UK Asian Film Festival which is the oldest South Asian film festival at the Kiln Theater today. Moreover, the Indian Premiere is all set to take place at the Kashish Pride Film Festival in Mumbai, on May 18. This film is the sequel to the popular LGBTQIA+ film Evening Shadows (2018) which won 27 international awards and was screened at 82 film festivals worldwide. 

Starring Mona Ambegaonkar, Shishir Sharma, Satvik Bhatia, Arpit Chaudhary and Yateen Karyekar alongwith Abhay Kulkarni, Veenah Nair and Yamini Singh this movie has some special songs. After singer Shaan sung the song ‘Udaa Udaa, Udaa’ for the film, composer Vishal Bhardwaj announced the release of the song ‘Din Jo Dhal Gaya’, collaborating with his wife Rekha Bhardwaj. Let’s check out what they have said of this collaboration.

Sridhar Rangayan shared his experience on working with Vishal Bhardwaj and Rekha Bhardwaj 

Sridhar said of working with the couple, “We have known and interacted with Rekha Bhardwaj as an ally of the community. When we asked her to sing, she readily agreed.But when we expressed our hope that Vishal Bhardwaj should compose the song and also sing the duet, we couldn’t believe it when he too agreed. It is such a huge boost to our independent film to have the support of such eminent people.”

Meanwhile, lyricist Saagar, who has penned lyrics for films 68 Pages and Evening Shadows noted, “Writing a song that has the accomplished artist duo Rekha and Vishal Bhardwaj attached as singers and composer was itself a huge honour and responsibility.In one of his interviews, Gulzaar saab has acknowledged Vishal ji to have given him his second innings as lyricist, and here I am getting this fortunate opportunity to have my lyrics composed and sung by the Bhardwajs. The song situation was also a bit challenging as it is a song of separation but the characters are not longing for each other, reminiscing about the bond that has been broken. With those music sittings with Vishal ji and Rekha ji, the whole process of the words written on paper becoming a treat to one’s ears and soul, will be a memory to be cherished lifelong.”

He also added, “ Getting this fortunate opportunity to have my lyrics composed and sung by the Bhardwajs.

Moreover, the director of UK Asian Film Festival Pushpinder Chowdhry shared,”We want to amplify the LGBTQ + themes in the film which are depicted in an original way, for our wide audience. We kn that through art and cinema, we can prom important discussions in the community that typically are difficult to approach. We are proud to be showcasing this film.”
