‘Sunidhi is a great friend’
He’d promised to himself that he wouldn’t be part of Bollywood
Today Raghav Sachar is not just composing music or singing in Hindi films, he’s even acting in one! “My fan mail made me take the plunge,” says Raghav who had earlier turned down a role in Haal-e-Dil, because he thought it was necessary to learn acting before taking the plunge.
In Tum Milo To Sahi Raghav’s playing himself and is paired with Anjana Sukhani. He lets us in on a secret — he has another untitled film in his kitty in which he’s playing the lead role!
Raghav who plays 31 instruments considers the flute and saxophone his favourites. When it comes to singing, Raghav has a well-developed falsetto. In Saiyya chhodke na ja from One Two Three he even sang the female part. “The deadline was approaching and I hadn’t recorded the female voice. So I sang and director Ashwani Dhir liked it. I can sing high notes with ease,” he says.
The young music director says, “I’ve noticed that the music scenario has now changed drastically — thanks to the likes of AR Rahman.” Raghav, who has a bachelor’s degree in music and has majored in jazz, says, “Music in films today is younger, it’s groovier and people are willing to experiment. The new generation understands sound better. We now have better music, efficient production processes, improved instrumentation and people who are educated in music!”
Recently he worked with the gorgeous Shruti Haasan. How was the experience?. “She’s easy to work with. We both have a music background, so we discussed music,” he says matter-of-factly.
Raghav confesses that he and Sunidhi Chauhan are ‘great’ friends. “She’s very talented. We are alike in many ways. We’re both Leos!” says Raghav who’s done a 25-city tour with her.
Talking of cities, Hyderabad is not new to Raghav, “I’ve visited Hyderabad at least a dozen times. In South India, people appreciate music. Artistes are respected. I’d like to settle in a southern state any day!”
Steering back to work, he’s composing music for two films — Phirr and Daddy Cool. But right now, his sights are set on South Africa. He tells us, “If everything falls in place, I’ll be performing at one of the IPL matches.”
