Exclusive: When Shah Rukh Khan-Aishwarya Rai Bachchan song in 'Devdas' couldn't finish in time; Sanjay Leela Bhansali-Ismail Darbar's fights to be blamed? - Times of India

Ismail Darbar gave some lilting tunes in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Murmur Dil De Chuke Sanam’ and ‘Devdas’ however Ismail and Bhansali never worked from that point forward, in any event not till date. Bhansali’s ‘Smash Leela’, ‘Padmaavat’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’ didn’t have Ismail as music chief. Ismail has been genuine that Bhansali and he had personality conflicts in the two movies however never said that one such conflict purportedly even raised the film’s financial plan by a considerable sum.

In a selective discussion with ETimes, Ismail claims that Bhansali needed him to roll out certain improvements in the ‘Bairi Piya’ tune from ‘Devdas’ highlighting Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai. Ismail didn’t yield and this thus ate into a great deal of time, which in the end prompted Bhansali being constrained to move his set from Film City (Goregaon). Normally, an entertainment of sorts, regardless of whether traded off, was not a financially practical activity but rather Bhansali had no alternative except for to do precisely that.

Alleges Ismail, “Bhansali was not happy even with ‘Dola Re’. I was not ready to change, neither ‘Dola Re’ nor ‘Bairi Piya’. Our skirmishes delayed the shoot. Bhansali’s booked time duration in Film City ended aur phir unko ko ek new set lagana padha away from Film City to complete the song.”

As indicated by Ismail, “After the line ‘Kaise Kahaun’ in ‘Bairi Piya’, many shots are from the new set.

“Bhansali and I are still good friends and very much in touch. We used to argue and quarrel a lot. Both of us are strongly creative and opinionated. I was just a violinist in his music team and he gave me the privilege of providing music to his two most crucial films in his career. I would love to work with Bhansali again but not at the cost of compromising my creativity. Post ‘Devdas’, Bhansali has started making music all by himself. All the three films had very good music but I still rate ‘Devdas’ and ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ better than them. Frankly, while yes he hasn’t asked me to give music to his films after ‘Devdas’, I must add here that our fights have been rather funny… one day we argued heavily, the other day we were sitting and eating together on the set,” Ismail news24nationed off.

Bhansali stayed inaccessible for input.
