Radhe Shyam: Two music directors for the Hindi version of the Prabhas starrer

While the much-awaited teaser of ‘Radhe Shyam’ will be hitting the internet on Valentine’s Day (February 14), the makers took to social media on Thursday and announced that Mithoon and Manan Bhardwaj will be composing the songs for the Hindi version of the film. As mentioned earlier, Kollywood musician Justin Prabhakaran will be the composer for all four south languages. Two or more musicians for the same film is an existing trend in Bollywood.

 While Mithoon will be scoring the music for two songs in the film, Manan will be composing one number. The lyrics of all these numbers will be penned by Kumaar and Manoj Munthasir. Prabhas and Pooja Hegde who are headlining the multi-lingual project have already shot for the songs in two formats (Hindi & regional). While the Baahubali superstar will be seen as Vikramaditya, the Mumbai bombshell is essaying the role of Prerana in this heart-wrenching love story set against the backdrop of Paris.

The shooting of ‘Radhe Shyam’ is on the verge of completion and the portions featuring Prabhas and veteran actor Krishnam Raju are left to be shot. Besides the lead pair, the big-budget project has an ensemble star cast of Bhagyashree, Jayaram, Priyadarshi, Sachin Khedekar, Murli Sharma, Sasha Chettri, Kunaal Roy Kapur and Sathya.

Jointly bankrolled by UV Creations and T Series, ‘Radhe Shyam’ is directed by ‘Jil’ fame Radha Krishna Kumar with Manoj Paramahamsa handling the camera and Hollywood action choreographer Nick Powell acting as the stunt coordinator. The period drama has been on sets for close to two years and the makers have recently shot a crucial schedule in the massive set at a private studio which is estimated to have cost around Rs 30 crore.
