Music takes Amit Trivedi all over India
Trivedi has five yet-to-be-released films in his kitty - 'Trishna', 'Lootera', 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana', 'Aaiya' and 'Kai Po Che'.
"I can say that I am going pan-India with my music. Very rarely a music director gets such an opportunity to do such diverse films.
"'Trishna', the Michael Winterbottom film starring Frieda Pinto is set in Rajasthan. So the music is earthy and I have used many local instruments for the music. In 'Lootera', which is a period film in Bengal, I have incorporated baul music and rabindra sangeet," Trivedi told us.
"'Kai Po Che' again has flavours of Gujarat blended in a contemporary way. The two leading actors in 'Aaiya' are from Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, so the music also represents the two states. 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana' is a fun Punjabi film but the music is not typically loud as I have given it my own touch," he added.
After working as a theater and jingle composer, the 32-year-old debuted as a film composer in the 2008 film 'Aamir' and shot to fame in the Hindi film music scene with his critically acclaimed work in Anurag Kashyap's 'Dev D'.
The composer also lent his voice to a song in Kashyap's recently-released film 'Gangs of Wasseypur', justifying his four-year-old "very special relationship" with the director as he can never say no to him.
