The man who gave a contemporary twist to traditional Sufi and Punjabi music is now composing for a Bollywood movie.
Rabbi Shergill , the proud Sikh whose melodic songs rocked the nation, is now back in action. After turning down many offers to compose for Hindi films, the maverick singer has now agreed to create songs for a movie titled Delhi Heights.
The film is a Sivaji Ganesan production, starring Jimmy Shergill and Neha Dhupia in the lead roles.
Rabbi has been given a free hand for composing the music of ‘Delhi Heights’. He will also be writing the lyrics and even singing some of the songs.
A leading newspaper quotes Rabbi as saying: “I agree to work on a film only if I am given complete artistic freedom. Yet, in a film, one has to always score music for a situation or a particular context. I look at it as a challenge and I must say, I am enjoying it tremendously. The music of the film will have a bit of rock, but not too much of Punjabi.”
Rabbi has also been working on his next album for some time now. The singer-composer says the album will be different from his first one. It is likely to release by the end of this year.
