As a lyricist, he’s penned the most heart-wrenching lyrics for some of the most iconic Bollywood songs of recent years – from the unforgettably ironic ‘Emotional Attyachar’ in Dev D to the even more iconic soundtrack of ‘Bombay Velvet’.
What better person then than Amitabh Bhattacharya to pen the official song for what is already being touted as this year’s most powerful Bollywood drama, ‘Brothers’.
The film stars Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra as boxers and warring brothers in the official re-make of the 2011 Hollywood classic ‘Warrior’.
The film’s official song, ‘Gaye Jaa’, is penned by Bhattacharya and sung by Shreya Ghoshal alongside Mohammed Irfan and is set to be added to the already impressive back catalogues of all three artists.
‘Brothers’ is in cinemas Friday 14 August.
