What about the music sequence at the beginning and at the end of the movie? Why that choice?The movie starts from the original Dil Se song and ends with a remix version of the same song. I enjoyed it even though it was absolutely out of place. That's perhaps the attraction to it I guess.
Well here’s the great thing about New York and all types of music. I’m a professor at New York University’s graduate film school; I’ve been a professor for the last eight years. One class we were talking about musicals, and one of my students suggested I see some Bollywood. I knew about it but I had never seen a Bollywood film. So I said, “Name one!” She said, “Dil Se.” Next class she gave me the DVD, I liked the movie very much. That song, ‘Changa Changa’, is in Dil Se. So, I made a promise with myself that one day I’d like to use it –so one day we did a song with Terence Blanchard, our composer, then we got MC Punjabi to do the rap, so that’s how that happened.
