Working with Ilaiyaraaja was an honor and a challenge for 'Bheed' lyricist Dr Sagar
Lyricist Dr Sagar, who is known for his work in movies and series like 'Daas Dev', 'Setters', 'Anaarkali of Aarah', 'Bheed' and 'Khaki-The Bihar Chapter', has worked with maverick composer Ilaiyaraaja for the upcoming film 'Music School'.
The lyricist has drawn huge appreciation from the audience for his Bhojpuri-styled songs such as 'Bambai Main Ka Baa' and that of 'Maharani 2'.
Talking about working with Ilaiyaraaja, Dr Sagar, who hails from Uttar Pradesh's Ballia district, told IANS: "Ilaiyaraaja is a big name in the music industry. I got a chance to meet him around four years ago in Chennai for the Paparao Biyyala-directed musical film 'Music School' which has about 12 songs. I've had the privilege to be involved in seven tracks. And in a way, we could say that the dialogue itself has been molded into poetry."
The film is all set to release in three languages: Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu, and it stars talented artistes like Sharman Joshi, Shriya Sharan, and Vinay Verma in the lead roles.
The lyricist added: "Working with Ilaiyaraaja was both an honor and a challenge. We both had to work through it and understand each other, even when it came to communicating, we had to speak in English. And now I hope the audience will soon see the fruits of our efforts."
'Music School' is set to hit the screens on May 12, 2023.
