SRK ropes in Aamir’s favorite music composer Ram Sampath for Raees
Aamir Khan has lost his favorite music composer Ram Sampath to Shah Rukh Khan. Fierce competition between the Khans was limited to hijacking release dates, has now extended to poaching people from each other’s camps. While we had reported earlier that King Khan’s Raees will release in Eid 2015 which pre dominantly has been a Salman Khan territory, the latest buzz suggests that SRK has now roped in Aamir’s favorite Ram Sampath for Raees.
The Bhoothnath Returns music director has previously worked with Mr Perfectionist on films like Talaash and Delhi Belly. Sampath has also composed music for the actor’s hit TV show Satyamev Jayate. The acclaimed music director is also working on the Dhoom 3 stars next which is Rajkumar Hirani’s P.K.
Sampath has raised many eyebrows after saying yes to SRK’s film. However, this shifting of camps is not a new phenomenon in the film industry. While Ram has agreed to do Raees, earlier music directors like Shankar Ehsaan and Loy who were SRK loyalists had composed music for Aamir’s directorial venture Taare Zameen Par in 2007.
Interestingly SEL have been a regular part of the Dharma camp having worked with producer Karan Johar on several projects such as Kal Ho Naa Ho, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and My Name Is Khan, until the production head had a change of heart and switched his preference to Vishal-Shekhar.
