Music launch of ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’

The music of Farhan Akhtar’s much awaited film, ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’, was released recently at a suburban multiplex of Mumbai amidst the cast and crew of the film. The trio of Shankar Ehsaan Loy has introduced a new singer in the film, Elisa Mendonsa, who happens to be Loy’s daughter.

Talking most the music of the film, Farhan said, “Shankar Ehsaan Loy could never manage to disappoint anyone with their music. Honestly, Karthik Calling Karthik has some of the prizewinning songs heard. I hope everyone will like it as me.”

Explaining the reason for not having sung himself for any song in the film, Farhan said, “There was no need for me to sound in this flick since my character didn’t required to. Karthik doesn’t even talk much in the flick so if I move singing, it would look out of character. Even in Luck By Chance I didn’t sing. In Rock On, singing was an integral part of the performance. So it depends on the film.”

Talking most the flick and its making, Director Vijay Lalwani said, “This is my prototypal flick and I desperately wanted to get the flick made. So honestly, I never thought whom to cast as Karthik. For me, Karthik was the main character in my story. When we started our consort Magic Beans, Amit and I thought why not try Excel out. I narrated the script to Farhan and he was on. Even Deepika said yes to it, which was surprising. So everything fell into place.”
