Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - IANS

From crick­eter MS Dhoni to Mo­ham­mad Azharud­din, Bol­ly­wood is go­ing big on biopics. Adding to the trend, ac­tor Ir­rfan Khan (left) has said who­ever reprises the role of RD Burman in a biopic on the le­gendary mu­sic com­poser will be lucky.

Ir­rfan was speak­ing at the re­al­ity show where he was asked which ac­tor will be suit­able for the biopic, and he said, “How can I say who will be suit­able? But a biopic on him should be made. He has had a bril­liant jour­ney. Who will be that lucky per­son to play him and who will be that lucky di­rec­tor to present the story, it is a great thing.”

The 77th birth an­niver­sary of the late com­poser was cel­e­brated by his wife singer Asha Bhosle with a mu­si­cal event a few days ago.

Re­port­edly, film­mak­ers have been plan­ning a biopic on him. Di­rec­tor-ac­tor Farhan Akhtar had said that he would like to do biopic on him.

About RD Burman’s mu­sic, Ir­rfan said, “He brought a dif­fer­ent kind of mu­sic from the kind of mu­sic that was go­ing on. He had his own style. The masti in his songs lifts your heart up which was his own forte. His kind of mu­sic wasn’t there be­fore him and nei­ther af­ter him. RD was RD.” Ask him about his favourite RD Burman song and he says, “I re­ally like his songs from Sho­lay.”
