Bhansali branching out in music world with album ‘Sukoon’ Dec 7

Sanjay Leela Bhansali is branching out in the music world. The filmmaker announced on Monday that his first original album titled ‘Sukoon’ will be released on December 7 on all music streaming platforms, Hindustan Times reported.

The filmmaker, who directed the Alia Bhatt-starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi earlier this year, turned composer on his film projects with Guzaarish in 2010. He has also composed all six tracks from Gangubai Kathiawad, including the popular song Dholida.

Speaking about his first attempt at original, non-film music, Sanjay said in a statement, “Two years in the making amidst the difficult times of covid, I found peace, quiet, and love while creating “SUKOON”. I hope you find the same while listening.”

The new album, which translates to peace, has nine different songs sung by artistes like Rashid Khan, Shreya Ghoshal, Armaan Malik, Papon, Pratibha Baghel, Shail Hada, and Madhubanti Bagchi. Sanjay has incorporated many different musical instruments including the tablas, flute, guitars, sarangi, sitars and harmonium into the soundtrack.
