National-award winning director Shaji N Karun, who is making bilingual film ‘Gaadha’, has roped in internationally acclaimed musician Zbigniew Preisner to compose music for the film.
Karun says he took Preisner to various old monuments across the country before he set out to work on the Hindi and Malayalam film, which is inspired by T Padmanabhan’s short story ‘Kadal’.
“I showed him various old monuments for the music required in the film. I thought he will be able to set the tone of the music right. He is the best for symphony orchestra,” the filmmaker told PTI.
Preisner closely worked with noted Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski on his films ‘Dekalog’, ‘The Double Life Of Veronique’, ‘Three Colours Blue’, ‘Three Colours White’ and ‘Three Colours Red’ besides giving music to films like ‘It’s
All About Love’,’Effroyables jardins’ and ‘Un secret’.
Though the cast of the film is not finalised yet, Shaji said he hopes to start shooting the film in few months.
