Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ahit song is one of thee best ways to pro­mo­tee a film and no one knowsws it bet­ter than film­maker

Dibakar Ban­er­jee (right) but he could not con­vince di­rec­tor Kanu Behl to in­cludeude one in their up­com­ing project.ect.

The di­rec­tor-pro­ducer hasas al­ways in­cluded a hit num­ber­ber in all his films right from his de­but Khosla Ka Ghosla (2006) to this year's By­omkeshesh Bak­shy and he thought some­thing like this will makeake his job as a pro­ducer eas­ierr in his up­com­ing film. “I have al­ways put a hit song in ev­ery­ery film of mine right from Khosla Ka Ghosla. It is dif­fi­cult to pro­mote a film iff you don’t have a song like this. The funny thing is thatat the film has a very in­tense disc se­quence. I told Kanu ‘Why don’t you put a song there? I'll get some mar­ket­ing.ng. I was a pakka pro­ducer, I wanted a song to mar­ket thee movie but Kanu re­fused,” Dibakar says.

Behl was plan­ning to makeke an­other film be­fore this butt the di­rec­tor aban­doned it. “It was a multi-nar­ra­tive track with four char­ac­ters. I couldld not con­nect to the story ex­cept for one track. We didd not know th­ese char­ac­ters in­ti­mately enough to say some­thing in­ter­est­ing. They seemed like typ­i­cal Bol­ly­wood char­ac­ters which were re­al­is­tic on the sur­face. How­ever, I think there is still a fas­ci­nat­ing story in one of the tracks," says Dibakar.

Kanu’s film, about a fam­ily of car-jack­ers shows the darker side of Delhi, a city that's been Dibakar’s muse in many films. “That’s the Delhi I grew up in. My mem­o­ries of Delhi re­flect in my sto­ries."

PTI It's tough to pro­mote a film if you don’t have a song like this. I wanted a song to mar­ket the movie but Kanu re­fused
