Directing ‘Tu hai toh’ was challenging amidst all the limitations but we all gelled well as a team and everyone had the same vision. Shoot on sets was quite smooth and we finished the entire shoot in 6 hours.”
The song which has already crossed 2 million views has been loved and appreciated by all. Saurabh added, “This is my third video out in a month’s time and I loved exploring a different side of me while not just choreographing but also directing the music video. I am so glad to see the response my work has been getting and everyone’s loving the look and feel of the music video. The music video is flowy, smooth, has a lot of emotions and the flavour is very catchy. “

Casting Director Krish Kapur and event manager Iram Khan will produce their debut film in association with a big banner. This is a children’s film based in Haryana.
Within a very short span of time casting director Krish Kapur has made a name for himself among actors and directors of Hindi film Industry. The young and energetic Delhiite has casted for film JALEBI from Bhatt camp (Vishesh Films) starring Rhea Chakraborty, Varun Mitra and Digangana Suryavanshi & has many more upcoming film projects in his kitty.
Iram Khan is a successful event manager and socialite in Delhi. She manages the event company and modeling Agency, now gearing up to enter Bollywood.
Delhi guy Krish and Iram are friends. The duo collaborated and founded a production house Chand Jannat Films.
Confirming the news Krish said, “Yes, we are producing a children’s film under our banner in association with a big banner of Bollywood. I can’t reveal any details now but soon we will announce it.”
Varun Mitra will soon be seen making his debut in Vishesh Films’ Jalebi. The actor will be seen playing the role of the tour guide in the film. What is interesting is that the actor has hosted a couple of travel shows. This certainly helped the actor prep for his role. Talking about the same, the actor says, “For a travel show most of the time there is no script. It is all spontaneous what happens. There is no plan as such, which according to Me is what makes it fun to watch. Our film obviously had a script, but having been a travel show host, made it easier to bring that spontaneity to devs character without losing the essence of the script.”
When everyone from Karan Johar, Badshah to Pritam is hooked to the music of a soon-to-released film, you know they are hitting the right notes when the music actually drops. The Bhatt’s are known for soulful melodies over the years and this validation further amplifies the class of music.
Karan Johar, says, “Heard all the songs of Jalebi and I’m absolutely spell bound! Kudos to Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt for creating magic, time and over again! “
But what goes into the making of the trademark Bhatt sound? It is believed that the reason their music works is because the sounds are fresh and have soulful melodies that resonate with listeners and stick in memory.
A long-time Bhatt collaborator, Pritam narrows down the secret ingredient. “Being soulful, this is what a traditional Bollywood album is all about”.
The one word being repetitively used by everyone we spoke to, to define this soon to be released album is “soulful” and “melodic.” Some are even calling it as the surprise album of the year.
A multi-composer album, the lyrics of each of the songs are deep, enthralling and emotional and brings the album alive.
Album of the year? Guess we mere mortals will have to wait a little longer to know for sure. The Trailer of Jalebi along with its first song titled Tum Se will be released on Monday, 10th September.
Whenever the Bhatts have presented the audiences with their offering, it has been a soulful and emotional tale with memorable music. People leave the theater hall with stirred feelings and a song in their heart!
