A special film titled ‘Puncham – Mujhey Chaltey Jaana Hai’ will pay a tribute to late, noted Bollywood music director R.D. Burman, fondly known as Pancham da, on his 75th birth anniversary June 27.
A Hindi movies channel has taken the initiative.
The film will feature Bollywood celebrities who were an intrinsic part of Burman’s life, and had the opportunity to be up close and personal with the legend himself. The list consists of stalwarts sharing the intricacies of what went into the making of the genius that R D Burman was.
Celebrities like Asha Bhosle, who was his wife, Gulzar, Javed Akhtar, Pyarelal, Shantanu Moitra, Vishal Bharadwaj, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor and Manna Dey would be seen sharing their memories of the composer, who had created music for films like ‘Hum Kisise Kum Naheen’, ‘Sholay’ and ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’.
“R.D. Burman was a legend who still rules the hearts of millions all across the globe. It is our honour to salute a man of such stature by showcasing his classic work and his journey to become an idol through the distinctive film ‘Puncham – Mujhey Chaltey Jaana Hai’,” Neeraj Vyas, senior executive vice president and business head, Sony MAX, said in a statement.
