Dutt 'set' to rock on Rs 50-lakh floor

Sanjay is set to feature in composer Anand Raj Anand's song Sheeshe mein main,

New Delhi: Actor Sanjay Dutt, waiting for his sentencing in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, will soon wow his fans by starring in a rocking music video.

Sanjay is set to feature in composer Anand Raj Anand's song Sheeshe mein main, which will be directed by Sanjay Gupta of Kaante fame.

"We met at a dinner in Lonavala and I sang Sheeshe mein main. Gupta was there and he liked the song instantly and said it belongs to White Feathers (Gupta's banner)," Anand said.

The rock music video has a lavish budget estimated at Rs 50 lakh.

"The song is written by me and I am going to sing it too. This is not my first song for Sanjay. I have sung several tracks for him earlier, including Ishq samundar in Kaante," said Anand.

Rock music is the latest craze among music lovers and the new video has kept this trend in mind. The video is expected to go on floors after a special court in Mumbai takes a final decision Feb 23 on Sanjay's application seeking probation for good conduct.

"I've got a green signal to record the song. Once I am through with recording I will give it to Gupta who is working out the other details of the video."

Anand is quite impressed with Sanjay and says the Lage Raho Munnabhai star understands the nuances and intricacies of music.

"Sanjay has a great sense of music. The way he reacts to a song shows how much he understands the minuteness of instrumentation. It makes the music director very happy. One can discuss music with Sanjay for hours. He is very fond of music and listens to international bands."

"In fact I told him that people should start calling you Music bhai," joked Anand.

Apart from composing music, Anand gives equal importance to his singing career.

"I have sung songs in Shootout at Lokhandwala and Das Kahaniyan. In fact directors of films where I'm providing music are insisting that I sing at least one song. My songs are designed to suit my voice. Usually my songs are high-pitched Sufi romantic numbers."

But Anand gives credit to Gupta for his success.

"Sanjay Gupta is my real discoverer. He gave me a big chance in his film 'Kaante'. The movie didn't have any leading lady but its music was a huge hit and after that there was no looking back for me."
